Cornwall Superintendent is Back With Sweet Snow Day Announcement
The snow has rolled in across the Hudson Valley and that means one thing. Cornwall Superintendent Terry Dade is hitting the stage. Okay, so not an actual stage, but the social media stage.
For those of you who aren't familiar, whenever there is snow in the forecast, the Orange County superintendent prepares an epic performance to announce Cornwall being closed for a snow day.
In 2022, we've been lucky enough to get a remix of NSYNC's 'It's Gonna Be Me' as well as a cool interpretation of Vanilla Ice's 'Ice, Ice Baby." Both performances nearly broke the internet.
When Hudson Valley meteorologists called for 4 to 8 inches of snow on Friday, February 25th, Twitter waited patiently for Dade to announce Cornwall's closing plans. And he came through in a very sweet way. Thursday, February 26th, Superintendent Dade shared this Neil Diamond-Terry Dade gem "Sweet Cornwall":
Dade sings to the tune of Diamond's "Sweet Caroline":
"It's gonna snow/this winter just seems so long/ now I gotta sing another snow day song." He hilariously continues "where is the spring?/I need spring then summer/ but til then lets stay warm and strong."
Hit Us Baby, With One More Storm
Not that we want more snow, but we're absolutely loving these performances. Back in January, Dade told us he was working on a Britney Spears-themed performance. Is it bad we're wishing for one more snowstorm just to see that?
Hudson Valley Weather is reporting that parts of the Hudson Valley will see up to 4 to 8 inches of snow by noon on Friday, February 25th. They are also calling for sleet throughout the morning.
This has been the 3rd major winter weather storm the Hudson Valley has seen this season. At the beginning of February, the Hudson Valley saw a strong ice storm hit the area. The storm left many without power and made for dangerous conditions, however, Ulster County took a brunt of the hit with Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan calling it "one of the most severe, high-impact winter storms Ulster County has experienced in at least a decade."
