I would rather they close early when possible and take the chance it doesn't turn out bad.
I'd rather wait. Not until the very last minute, but certainly as long as possible without having people trying to get somewhere for no reason. School being canceled is a HUGE problem for us, so if it got canceled for no reason, I'd be very unhappy.
I think they should wait because sometimes it doesn't hit exactly where or as bad as they predict. I do think they should give reasonable notice though... like 2 hours at least.

2 hours seems good to me!
I like two hours too. It's long enough that I can usually find someone by the time work is ready for me to not be late myself.
oh yeah I'm good with 2 hours. I thought we meant like school started in 10 minutes and it gets cancelled lol.
When I was younger our superintendent lived in Rhode Island and would not cancel school until he got into town (from where he lived about 45-1hour drive). There were many times that I was waiting for the bus as my bus came at 615 and my mom would come walking up the street to tell me it was cancelled. That guy was a jerk.
Here, most schools close the day before, if there is even a hint of bad weather schools are cancelled before the weather arrives. The plus side of this is that you have time to plan. Child care arrangements can be made and such. The negative is that schools are closed many times when the weather patterns change and we are off on a beautiful day. Now, I love having DH home so I don't mind, but each day they are off during the year they tack on to the end of the school year so you never know how long the school year will last.
Today, there was rough weather all day. A tornado went through about a half hour from here and did a lot of damage. There is a lot of flooding and many streets are impassable. My current irritation was with church tonight waiting until just now to close. It was obvious to me that they were going to, but I wanted to be able to plan. This got me thinking about how I would feel if I was a working parent and so was DH. It would be difficult to find child care the morning of a cancellation. I am not sure there is anyone who could watch my children on that little notice.
I'm not being snarky...but why did you have to wait for church to be cancelled? That is different than school to me.
