The Tulsa World and the future of snow days

"A blizzard that socked Oklahoma with snow, sleet and ice has halted the Tulsa World's production of its Wednesday print edition," the Associated Press reports. "It will be the first time in the paper's nearly 106-year history an edition hasn't been published." Alas, the World distributed its news via the Internet and various smartphone applications, and the Republic survived.

The blizzard also halted school for many kids. But might there come a time when snow days are obsolete?

UPDATE: Snow days are already obsolete for some private schools in Tulsa. They have "cyber days" instead.
