From The Times Reporter, about winter driving:

Tuscarawas County Sheriff Walt Wilson says it would take an extremely drastic weather event for him to declare a snow emergency level in the county. In Ohio, a sheriff may declare a snow emergency and temporarily close any township, county or state road within his jurisdiction for the preservation of public peace.

Wilson said Wednesday that past experience with the system has created a lot of issues and puts him or any sheriff in the middle of the employer and employees. On Tuesday, Wilson said, his department received many calls from people wanting him to declare a level. The calls included one, he added, from a woman who wanted him to give her written permission excusing her from work.

This is in regards to an adult. I have to remind people, the world of work is not the sheltered school environment.
