The threatening icy weather sent Philadelphians into a panic this past Monday, January 8, 2018. It is no secret that this winter has been dangerously cold. With many snow storms and below zero temperatures, it is a lot colder than expected. The lowest temperatures were around -8 and -10. Schools all over the area already had about 2 snow days and several delays to start the school day.

On January 8th, 2018, the worst weather condition of them all occurred. Freezing rain turning into ice was a major disruption to Philadelphians’ day. Archbishop Ryan, Father Judge, St. Hubert, Villa Joseph Marie, Nazareth Academy, and more in the area were sent home early from school before the storm began. Not only were schools worried about their students’, teachers’, and administration’s well being, but certain stores and banks closed early as well. Archbishop Ryan’s weather reporter, Daejah Williams rated this storm an 8/10. “I don’t think we will have another one, but it is possible for us to get more snow,” said Daejah.

When the rock solid rain hit the windows, you heard loud bangs. When it reached the streets, it was dangerous. Drivers reported that it was difficult to control their cars during and after this weather issue. To our surprise, the temperatures rose later in the week to 50 and 60. This winter has already been one of surprises and ups and downs. All in all, it is the best decision to stay safe under conditions like these.
