A snowy, blustery day

South Boston News
Outside the main path of a storm that dumped heavy snow in parts of Virginia, Halifax County received a mere dusting Wednesday morning — although it was enough to prompt the cancellation of school. It was sixth day off for students and school staff, counting one early release day and one day of delayed classes previously this year. Although the snowfall was whipped by gusty winds, Virginia State Police reported little trouble on area roadways. Two accidents were reported around 9 a.m. Wednesday — a vehicle that slid into the median on Route 360 about a mile south of Route 47 in Charlotte County, and a pickup truck that wound up in a ditch on Cody Road near Buffalo Street.

Education means nothing in Halifax County. We are a laughing stock to the surrounding counties. One snowflake and Halifax calls it off. Sounds like someone does not like to work???
