00:00 - 00:03James Spann forecasts a 40% chance of late evening flurries.
00:04 - 00:05There’s talk of sleet in Birmingham
00:05 - 00:07and in the surrounding areas.
00:08 - 00:12From what we can tell, it's going to be a mild winter event
00:12 - 00:15but beyond that, it's not clear will happen.
00:17 - 00:19The weather arrives after 10 pm.
00:19 - 00:21That's what James Spann said.
00:24 - 00:26Sir...
00:27 - 00:28Hoover schools just closed.
00:31 - 00:33Bently declared a national state emergency.
00:34 - 00:36Homewood, Vestavia, and Birmingham schools are closing..
00:53 - 00:58Everyone except for the school superintendents get out now.
01:13 - 01:15What the hell are you thinking?
01:15 - 01:17It is going to be a nightmare.
01:18 - 01:23I bet the ABC stores are closing too.
01:25 - 01:28I don’t have any liquor to get me through this.
01:29 - 01:31Where will I get beer?
01:31 - 01:34Forget about going to the store!
01:34 - 01:37Every idiot is going to be there now buying bread and milk!
01:37 - 01:40The lines will be 20 carts long.
01:40 - 01:42Sir, the people remember the last weather event..
01:42 - 01:46These preemptive closings will be the death of me!
01:46 - 01:48Sir, it is best to be cautious.
01:48 - 01:52Tomorrow there will be a delayed opening.
01:53 - 01:54what am i going to do with my kids until 930 am?
01:56 - 01:57They drive me crazy.
01:57 - 02:00"Timmy pushed me. Tina hit me!"
02:00 - 02:03"I have to go to the bathroom. I want a snack."
02:04 - 02:08Are you kidding me?
02:08 - 02:13which one of you school czars is making these decisions?
02:14 - 02:16Soon it will be tornado season
02:17 - 02:21you’ll close the schools then and delay openings all week
02:27 - 02:29I’m so sick of these overreactions.
02:30 - 02:34If only they would learn from history
02:34 - 02:36stop freaking out
02:41 - 02:42Too much of this...
02:43 - 02:47is there not a single school official with reasonable judgment
02:48 - 02:53Perhaps a wait and see approach
02:54 - 02:56not preemptive actions
02:56 - 02:59Who do they think they're fooling?
03:00 - 03:02The whole thing is a sham!
03:04 - 03:07It's okay Anna, we're all guilty of weather panic
03:14 - 03:16The city could go ahead and do..
03:19 - 03:23simple things like salt
03:25 - 03:26highways 31 and 280
03:31 - 03:33Nothing. Will change.
03:40 - 03:46The whole is going to be on the road now
03:46 - 03:49picking up their kids
03:53 - 03:56We'll see how this all turns out.
