I have a lot less concern on snow then others. There are three or four times all winter where we have a big snow that impacts travel. If we move up to start in February, then we just have to have a contingency plan in case that is the one of those three or four days, but you are talking maybe a 5% chance of this being an issue.
I don't buy the spring break issue, not when we keep moving June a week later due to fathers day and it comes then right at the start of summer vacations -- if vacations were such a concern, then we should be moving it a week earlier not later. In addition, we have finals weekend before Thanksgiving, when you could have folks leaving early for the holiday. So, if we care about avoiding holidays, then we should do so.
I'm fine with the proposed change. I'm also fine with pulling it up just one month, but then moving the Finals to fist weekend of November, so we skip October all together to avoid expo. I also think June should be moved a week up not a week later relative to fathers day.
