It seems they try and break a record every year that guests can be involved in.  I saw it a couple days ago on the Asbury Park Press.

I wonder if they are going to open the park if it is going to snow that much and if they will reschedule the event.

That much snow will not be melting very fast in low 40s, especially after freezing the night before.

If it was colder and the snow sticked on the ground then we could do one in the parking lot.

No records being set today.  

 

A snowball fight cancelled because of snow!   That’s pretty funny!

 

What makes it more weird is that it is a rare southern snowstorm that had dumped snow in Texas and New Orleans that hit us.

Yeah, we were supposed to go to Six Flags Over Georgia yesterday and they were closed due to snow. Atlanta (and a lot of the south) shuts down for snow since they don't have plows or salt trucks.

And now we’re 0-2 with SFOG closed for snow yesterday and GA closed today...

 

Hopefully snow holds off Friday so we can get to GA while we are still up here visiting. Then BGW Saturday and maybe SFOG on Sunday if it all works out

I found out that Storybook Land was open today. I believe there was also an ACE event there.

That is why car collectors prefer southern cars, no road salt exposure to rot them out.
