I also got this, telling me it is a Weather Emergency and that I am urged to keep my car off the road.
Swallow your pride, Mr. Mayor! You don’t prove anything about the effectiveness of NYC’s cleanup of the snow by keeping the school’s open. You obviously don’t care about the well-being of the thousands of NYC teachers and school staff on their commute or where they will park! Completely idiotic!— NYCteacher
However the bottom line is that there was not need freak out and declare an "emergency". There was only about 4 inches of snow. It was an easy walk to school and the roads were fine.
