Connecticut Town Offers Amusing Twist On School Closings
Mother Nature did her dirtiest as New England got rocked by another Nor'easter. Here's how one Connecticut school took care of business in a very funny way.
Hello and welcome to Winter in New England. Snow storms are going to happen. Not often do we have Nor'easter's slam us this close together, but it is what it is. So as you clean up, dig out, and figure out how to deal with another day of school closings, you have to give a high - five to the Newington, Connecticut school district.
In a very funny story covered by wfsb.com it seems that the robot woman who is the voice of Newington Public Schools, left one message Wednesday morning that added levity to yet another annoying day for parents, and some students too. Give a listen:
The reality of Winter Storm Quinn is that Western Connecticut, as well as the Hartford area and much of the region is digging out after being buried. Eversource Energy says over 160 thousand of their customers lost electricity during this storm. That on the heels of Friday's Nor'easter and numerous power losses stemming from that, I don't think I'm far off in saying most of us have had enough already.
