Students In Chattanooga, Tenn., Get A Snow Day After All

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Kids in Chattanooga, Tenn., were begging for a snow day all week. They flooded a local news station with tweets pretending to be school officials and proclaiming that school was canceled.

As a giant winter storm intensified yesterday, the real administrators canceled classes. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
