Obviously... because working moms need to find child care if the schools close, and SAHMs don't. So that makes complete sense that SAHMs see open school during snow as "it's dangerous to try to get them there in this weather, and what a damn hassle it's going to be" whereas WOHMs see open school during snow as "thank God, I don't need to scramble for back up child care today".
