It Snowed in Hawaii . . . Snow Days Don't Make Your Kid Dumb . . . and Chick-Fil-A Fed Stranded Drivers
The snow is out in FULL FORCE right now. You probably heard how in Alabama and Georgia, it was so bad people got stranded and had to camp out in stores and schools. Here are a few quick stories about the snow deluge . . .
1. It's always important to look at the GOOD in people that comes out during emergencies.
In Birmingham, Alabama, a Chick-fil-A restaurant owner named Mark Meadows had his staff hand out free food to anyone stuck in the snow . . . which turned out to be around 280 sandwiches. He also let people sleep in the restaurant. (Fox News)
2. If your kid has gotten a LOT of snow days this year, it doesn't mean they'll be DUMBER. A new study has found that kids are better off getting a snow day, rather than the school staying open in bad weather.
Because if there's bad weather, a lot of kids end up not going to school and miss out on class. Then the teachers have to re-cover the material when everyone's back. So if school's canceled, it actually wastes LESS time. (CBS 3 - Philadelphia)
