Snow day might equal no signing day

One of the most important days for high school athletes and college programs is on the horizon, as national signing day is Wednesday.
It's the first day football players (also soccer and other sports) around the country can officially sign letters-of-intent to play in college.
There will be signing-day ceremonies all across the country.
Well, at least for possibly the lower half of the country and west coast.
Signing day ceremonies on Wednesday could be in serious jeopardy in Michigan and other states because of the massive snowstorm that's supposed to arrive Tuesday night and Wednesday.
It's supposed to dump about a foot of snow at the very least in Oakland County.
If that turns out to be true, then school will for sure be called off. If school is called off, then there will be no signing day ceremonies.
They might not even take place on Thursday either since there's a chance the storm will do such severe damage that there won't be school on Thursday.
By then, the letters of intent will already be faxed anyway and the novelty will wear off.
It's kind of like opening presents on Christmas on Dec. 27 or 28. Sure, it's still fun, but it doesn't match excitement of Christmas Day.
Sadly, it appears as if Mother Nature will rob us this year the excitement of signing day.
