Snow Days Strain Some Columbus Families

GRANDVIEW HEIGHTS (Terri Sullivan/Kate Liebers) -- For parents, especially single parents, a snow day can mean a day without pay.

"It's just, it's just rough," said Viola Towns, the mother of two girls.

"The daycare is closed and then you go to find somebody," she said. "It's hard to do that." 

Towns said she took a sick day when her daughters got a snow day.
 
She said she is lucky in that she can make up the hours on Saturday. Others, however, may have to just go without the pay.

Towns said she is looking forward to the season without snow days.

"I am ready for spring," she said. "Yes I am."
