How Much Snow Does It Take To Close Your School?

A recent post on reddit provided a map of the US, broken down by counties, which predicts the general amount of snow needed before your local school closes. It was created based on a combination of local news reports, a survey, and average snowfall levels from NOAA maps. It then makes an approximation of the differing levels of snow it takes to call off school. While the map is based on hundreds of data points, it is by no means considered to be 100% accurate. Nonetheless, it is sort of interesting to think about, given the deep South's recent "Snomageddon".
