Snow Day Saturday

With a winter storm bringing several inches to the Ann Arbor area on Saturday, January 18, the inevitable snow closures and delays are happening. With snow and sleet and freezing rain forecast on and off throughout the afternoon, please use caution if you are heading out.

Announced Open

These locations have made an announcement that they are open.

No Announcements

I saw no announcement on whether this location is open or closed. I assume they are open, but I recommend verifying in case they announced after I checked.

  • The Little Seedling
  • Henry Ford Museum
  • Ypsi Township Parks & Rec Programs
  • Ann Arbor Parks
  • Goldfish Swim School

Do you have any other information on closures or delays? Add it to the comments.

Traffic and Power Outages

When I checked the traffic map around town, things look slow (lots of orange) on the highways. If you head out, be careful especially in neighborhoods which have not been plowed.

I was worried about power outages with high winds, but the winds seem to be calmer than predicted. If we hear of power outages we will update.

Ann Arbor Snow Day Plans

Where I live, we got on the lower end of the predications. However I know others in the Metro Detroit area did get closer to the 8″.

With freezing rain and sleet in the forecast this after noon, we recommend sticking close to home.

Check out our favorite sledding hills – if you’re lucky maybe you can trudge through the snow to one of them.

A few years ago we made delicious snow cream and have been waiting for a big snowfall to be able to make it again.

Other Snowed In Ideas

Yesterday I put together a list of Snow Day movies that you can stream with your various subscriptions. All of the movies have a winter, snow, ice theme.

Family Movies to Stream on a Snow Day

Personally we have been busy and today is about taking down the Christmas trees. Fortunately we got the outside lights down before last weekend.

Other ideas for spending your snow day – aside from shoveling and some time spent playing in the snow are:

  • Board Games – The game choices will depend on their age. My teen enjoys Pandemic, Trivial Pursuit, Clue, and Scrabble. When she was younger, other favorite games included Life, Guess Who, and Hi-Ho Cherry-o.
  • Video Games – My daughter loves playing Video Games. I’m sure she’ll spend some time on our Wii U and the classic Nintendo systems.
  • Crafts – Break out the craft supplies. Make paper snowflakes, snowmen, and more.
  • Forts – Build snow forts, have a snow ball fight, then retreat indoors and make a coach cushion and blanket fort. I used to love making these as a kid.
