I would disagree that you should not close schools when you expect wind of such magnitude. In Florida we also experience our share of wind incidents, to include bad storms (not just hurricanes). We often get with stakeholders, including the school district, and they often will make the call to close schools if the wind is supposed to be blowing hard at certain times of day.....a 50-60 MPH gust of wind hitting the broadside of a school bus on a bridge or country road can spell a lot of trouble. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

There's no disagreement. I specifically said that I'm not knocking the decision to close the schools - I try not to second-guess decision makers when I'm not privy to all the facts, particularly where safety is involved.
