Can't afford snowplows?

My daughter's school inclement-weather schedule is driven by Fairfax County, VA, the fifth-richest in the nation, per Forbes (last year).  And yet, it seems that a squirrel sneezing over the threat of snow is enough to close schools for the day.

For sure, there's been quite a bit of snow, but I question just how much closure is needed.  They've had at least one (as many as four) snow days off for ten of the past eleven weeks (including today).

I remember a couple of years, growing up, when we had a lot of snow days, but nothing that even approached this.  I'm glad she's only in kindergarten, so it probably isn't having as much effect as on older kids.
