It struck without warning. A nightmare nor`easter rocked nearly half of the country overnight. From the Carolinas to New England, down came several inches of snow, bringing with it treacherous conditions.

Around the nation, at least 2,200 flights were canceled. Roads in the storm zone were barely drivable -- the icy roads in arkansas to blame for at least four deaths. the November storm paralyzed New York with its biggest snow day since the 1800's.

And speaking of snow days, a middle school in New Jersey had the ultimate snow "night" rather. Stranded by the snow, buses couldn't get to the schools to pick students up at the end of the day. So the principle of a Liberty Middle School acted fast. He raided the kitchen, turned on a few movies, even grabbed a few mats from the gym for students to rest on. The school buckled down to keep his students safe overnight to wait out the storm. A few teachers and staff members stayed the night to help out. While it seems like spending the night at school would be torture, the kids didn't seem to mind at all!

So we ask the question: looking back at your middle school self, would spending the night stranded at school be as fun as these kids made it seem...or not? Share with us your answer, on our Facebook page.
