HIGH POINT, N.C. — A lot of folks across the South are enjoying a snow day. But not Dale — or so it seemed.

The closing read:

Metal Works continued with the joke, teasing on Twitter that a decision would be made on Dale’s status for Saturday.

On an updated closing notice that aired on FOX8’s crawl Friday afternoon, Metal Works posted:
