Every morning I like to visit at Google’s Hot Trends page to see what’s on the minds of searchers out there. Usually it’s reflective of the morning news, but this morning it read like a school closings report.

Google Hot TrendsOr like a local TV station roll call. I was amazed to see WSAZ out of Huntington and Charleston, West Virginia (near my hometown) as the number 11 search. And then I noticed, in place of names you might have seen in the news the past couple of days or generic school project topics, a mass of call letters – WGN, WDTN, WHIO, WKRC.

And laced in with them were queries like "lake central high school," "district 300" and "school delays" In fact, 88 out of the 100 queries listed were searches for broadcast stations or school closings.

I guess you could say they’re getting a fair amount of snow in the Midwest. The queries themselves reflect where the worst of it is: Chicago, Michigan, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Columbus, and West Virginia. Down here in Lexington, it’s chilly but mild, so it was a bit surprising to see the extent of the blustery weather directly north.  

Ah, to live in the Almost South. Hope our neighbors are able to stay safe.
