The snow, ice and record- breaking below zero temperatures hit us hard this winter, and no one was spared. Local schools and businesses were forced to delay the start of their day, or worse, cancel the day's events because of the awful conditions.

Schools seemed to suffer the most, with the worry that the school year would need to be extended to accommodate for missed days. State Lawmakers struck a deal regarding those missed school days around Ohio.

A House-Senate compromise committee approved a bill Tuesday to provide four extra snow days. They also removed a provision that would have required teachers to undergo professional development training. Many districts have cancelled classes for nine or more days this year. Gov. John Kasich backed adding extra snow days on a one-time basis.
