"Skinner's Sense of Snow" is the eighth episode of season 12. It originally aired on December 17, 2000. The episode was written by Tim Long and directed by Lance Kramer.


"When a large storm snows in Springfield Elementary, the children are trapped inside for the holidays and soon rebel against Principal Skinner - while Homer tries to rescue them, using Flanders' car."


A huge snow storm hits Springfield. Much to Bart and Lisa's dismay, everyone has the day off, except for Springfield Elementary School. At school, Skinner shows them a crappy Christmas film from the '30s. The kids try to leave, only to find that they are snowed in. Principal Skinners army instincts kick in when the students become uncontrollable.

At night, Bart tries to escape by digging through the snow in a hole in the wall, but he gets caught by Skinner. Skinner tries to cave the hole in so that escape would have to be replanned in a different location but it caves in on him before he gets out in time. The kids tie him up in a dodgeball sack and the kids run wild.

Meanwhile, Homer and Flanders use a "snow-plower" (Ned's car with Ned's roofing attached to the front as a plower) to save the kids. The car gets frozen and leaks gas. This makes Homer hallucinate about belly dancing women who wait on him. They receive a message from Nibbles the school hamster, send out by Skinner, and head for the school. They crash into a salt silo, melting the snow and rusting up the car. This causes it to leak gas again and he sees Lisa as a camel and Bart as a beautiful women and he kisses him. After they crash, Lisa (with a camel head) says "Merry Christmas, from The Simpsons" and brays a couple of times.
