SCO snoWatch: January 26, 2015 (take two)

By Brian Le | Jan. 26, 2015, 10:42 p.m. | In Humor »

Yesterday's snowstorm left us less than enchanted and wetter than we'd like. Could its second leg give us the snow day we're after?

How-ev-er, before the snow day comes the call, and before the call comes predictions. SCO, of course, is the most accurate predictor of snow days; so stick around for updates on whether we'll be having a snow day this Monday.

SCO snoWatch: Winter 2013

Bundle up Blazers, with just about a month left in the semester, this might just be the perfect time for a snow day.


snoWatch: Three feet of snow is on its way

By Melodi Anahtar Marjorie Fuchs | Feb. 8, 2012, 1:18 p.m. | In Humor »

Yes, the Snow Gods are finally smiling upon us. And with this magnificant news, snoWatch is officially back.

snoWatch: Seventy to freezing in three days

By Ava Wallace | Feb. 21, 2011, 4:03 p.m. | In Humor »

Spring lulled the 85 percent of the female population into a false sense of security, but we snoWatch experts know that the laws of nature don't really apply to Silver Spring.


SnoWatch: Can we get an Even day?

By Ava Wallace | Jan. 31, 2011, 5:53 p.m. | In Humor »

On Tuesday, we found out that the sky gods are democratic, as they heeded Obama's words from the State of the Union address and "did big things" (those of you who are out of the loop, go to 1:01:16).


SnoWatch: we're (nearly) halfway there

By Ava Wallace | Jan. 20, 2011, 8:26 p.m. | In Humor »

Why do the proponents of precipitation, spokespeople of slush, advocates of ice and flag-bearers (thank you, Thesaurus.com) of flurries suddenly turn their backs on all they hold near and dear?


SnoWatch: easier than studying for a midterm

By Ava Wallace | Jan. 11, 2011, 7:42 p.m. | In Humor »

It appears as though we have a dilemma on our hands. As a sneaky exam week (since when do we have midterms the week after we get back from break?) rears its misshapen, demented, soul-sucking head, many Blazers are torn about their desire for a snow day.


snoWatch: Not totally necessary

By Ava Wallace | Dec. 16, 2010, 12:28 p.m. | In Humor »

Nothing soothes our holiday-cookie-saturated souls here at SCO more than an announcement telling us that after-school activities are canceled, schools are delayed, or - the holy grail of all announcements - schools are canceled.


snoWatch turns powerWatch

By Deepa Chellappa | Feb. 24, 2010, 8:59 p.m. | In Humor »

Our cohorts at AccuWeather and the Capital Weather Gang are describing the storm coming our way tonight as a "bomb" and a "super storm." We have to say, we're less than impressed - we hardy Montgomery County residents are ready for anything.


snoWatch: Blizzard blues

By Deepa Chellappa | Feb. 7, 2010, 9:57 a.m. | In Humor »

Sorry for leaving you in the dark, Blazers - literally. With power out in many areas of Montgomery County, the "thundersnow" has left many of us (including yours truly!) without heat, TV, computer access and of course - snoWatch. But never fear! We're back with revised predictions for school this week (spoiler alert - there probably won't be much of it).


snoWatch: The quest for milk

By Deepa Chellappa | Feb. 4, 2010, 10:35 p.m. | In Humor »

The air is freezing cold, the wind is making my eyes water, the parking lot is full and the frigid atmosphere is suddenly pierced by a shriek of frustration. I have just walked out of my third grocery store of the day empty-handed, with no carton of milk in hand.


snoWatch: The snow just keeps coming

By Deepa Chellappa | Feb. 2, 2010, 8:08 p.m. | In Humor »

Well, here we are again, already writing another snoWatch column for you to enjoy. We're fresh off a snowy weekend - though we were hoping for a two-hour delay yesterday.


snoWatch: What the flurries?

By Deepa Chellappa | Jan. 30, 2010, 1:31 p.m. | In Humor »

It snowed on a Saturday. Nobody cares. In all seriousness, snow showers during the weekend only keep Blazers cooped up inside staring forlornly out the windows at the slick streets.


snoWatch: Our noses are frozen

By Deepa Chellappa David Tao | Jan. 7, 2010, 9:43 p.m. | In Humor »

In case you didn't get the memo, it's cold out there. Really cold. So cold that, according to AccuWeather, iguanas in Florida are going into hibernation mode and falling off trees (seriously - see for yourself).

snoWatch: We could be making history

By Deepa Chellappa David Tao | Dec. 18, 2009, 9:59 p.m. | In Humor »

The news is in from Copenhagen - the nations of the world have decided yet again to "recognize" climate change without committing to emissions reduction. And just like that, Mother Nature responds as vengefully as she can, by dumping a ridiculous amount of snow on the ground over a weekend.

By Deepa Chellappa | Dec. 8, 2009, 11:09 p.m. | In Humor »

Festivus is upon us! This ridiculous holiday popularized by "Seinfeld" kicked off in D.C. this weekend, and we thought Blazers could use a little airing of the grievances themselves. So here goes.


International leaders hold emergency snoWatch meeting

On Saturday morning at 6:37 a.m., Silver Chips Online's panel of snow experts* dragged themselves out of bed to attend an emergency meeting held in the nation's capital to calculate with their usual astonishing accuracy the probability of school delays and cancellations.

snoWatch: March rages in like a lion

By Sophie Schwadron Kiera Zitelman | March 1, 2009, 9:49 p.m. | In Humor »

A watched pot never boils, right? As soon as we considered our snow day prospects over, winter finally arrives, albeit fashionably late. Since Valentine's Day, we've shed our jackets for our windbreakers, we've again found our place in the Cold Stone line and we've started online window shopping for bathing suits (unless that's just us...). Heck, even spring sports tryouts began on Saturday. But not so fast, summer breeze: the Weather Channel predicts four to eight inches (not to be confused with 48 - that fast-talking meteorologist fooled us too) of snow overnight.
