When everyone else has turned away, at least I know my wife will stand by my forecasts. So here is a BIG FIRST CALL from Foot's Forecast:

Baltimore County Schools will not see a FULL WEEK of school until the SECOND week of March.
Now part of that forecast is a no-brainer, consider the calendar recently:

Week of:
- Jan 19: Martin Luther King Day, no school Monday, half day Friday 1/23
- Jan 26: No school Mon-Tue-Wed, 2 hour delay Thu 1/30
- Feb 2: No school Tue, 2 hour delay Wed, No school Fri 2/6
- Feb 9: No school Fri (teacher inservice)
- Feb 16: No school Mon (President's Day), school at risk on 17th or 18th (possible storm)
- Feb 23: school at risk middle of the week (possible storm...just in time for MSA testing!)
- Mar 1: No school Tue 3/2 (primary day)

That is probably the longest stretch of disrupted school time since the infamous winter of 1994.
Mark your calendar with my projections and we'll see how accurate it turns out to be.
