Albemarle schools closed... for flooding
Albemarle County public schools–- which delayed their opening by two hours for threatened-but-undetermined ice on Friday, January 22–- are closed Monday, January 25 due to flooding. Alas, the school system hasn't yet Twittered or even announced the news on its website (only revealing by automated phone message thus far), so there may be a raft of confusion this morning.
Update 7:45am: Charlottesville schools are on a two-hour delay. By 7:45 am– when Walker and Buford students are typically arriving at school– parents had received no alert and the news was announced only on the school system's website.
Albemarle County reports 30 roads are closed because of heavy rainfall, particularly in the Scottsville area and in western Albemarle.
According to a National Weather Service warning, its radar shows two to four inches of rain have already fallen, and another half-inch is possible through 2:30pm January 25.
