Snow Forecast Makes Schools Cancel Games

January 09, 1991|By Staff report

Even before the first snowflakes had fallen yesterday, Paul Rusko had decided to cancel the entire day's slate of public school sporting events.

The county's coordinator of physical education and athletics wasn't taking any chances.

"The forecast is calling for snow to start around 2 o'clock and to continue into the evening," he said from his Annapolis office around 1:45 p.m. "We could see anything from 2 to 4 inches. The main roadsare good, but they're cold and they'll retain whatever falls.

"Itmay turn out to be nothing and I could be wrong. I hope I am. I don't want that stuff. But I'm not going to play with it. I'm not sendingthose kids out there."

An hour later, light precipitation began to fall, but no snow.

Rusko said all games will be made up today, weather permitting.
