Cool Website: Snow Day Calculator

If you're tired of waiting until the last minute to find out whether or not your kids have a snow day, I've got an awesome website for you. It's called the 'Snow Day Calculator.'

You enter your zip code, your type of school, the number of snow days you've had so far this year, the leniency of your school's administration, whether there's a special event the next day, and whether you're in a mountainous region.

There's also something where you enter the level of 'hype' for a snow day . . . meaning how much kids, teachers, administration, and the media are talking about a possible storm. Then click 'Calculate,' and the site grabs data from

The site was built by a 16-year-old 11th-grader in Watchung, New Jersey named David Sukhin. He came up with the algorithm when he was in the sixth grade . . . and he says it's never failed him once.
