Numbeo, a crowd-sourced database of the price of goods around the world, maintains a comprehensive list of the average price of a domestic draft beer in different countries. And the International Labor Organization (ILO) maintains a vast library of minimum monthly wage data. So we combined the two—into a beer indicator, of sorts.

Redditor atrubetskoy created this map that shows how much snow, on average, it takes to cancel school across the United States. Atrubetskoy also shared some other facts:

The lightest green says "any snow" but also includes merely the prediction of snow. Also, this is snow accumulation over 24 hours/overnight.

In much of the Midwest and Great Plains, school closing often depends more on wind chill and temperature than on snow accumulation ("cold days"). Thus, this map may be misleading in those areas.

Many jurisdictions in California and other western states have significantly varied snowfall, depending on elevation. This makes it difficult to find an "average" number, or often makes it misleading.

Urban areas like Chicago and New York have more resources to clear snow and often need more to cause closings.

To everyone saying "I grew up in so-and-so and we never closed school," policies have changed in the last 20 years to make closing a much more common occurrence. Just because schools stayed open back then doesn't mean they do these days.

Hawaii does get snow! Just… not where people live.

Data was taken from hundreds of various points from user responses and interpolated using NOAA's average annual snowfall days map. Any corrections/additions are welcome, just give a decently specific location.

Prepared to be blown away. In a fascinating attempt at putting our everyday lives in proper perspective, the humor blog Wait But Why compiled a series of timelines growing in scale with each successive period, starting from the last 24 hours to the history of the universe since the Big Bang, which reveal a humbling perspective on just how minuscule our average lifespan is, and even the entire history of humanity itself, in comparison to the enormity of the age of the universe as we know it.
