Goof: When Lisa is first seen in this episode, she's wearing winter boots and pants under her coat. But after the family arrives at the circus, she's in her regular dress and sandals after she takes off her coat. Then, when the storm hits and everyone else evacuates, the next shot of the family shows Lisa with the pants and boots again.
Bart burns the library book Johnny Tremain, but in "Whacking Day," he read that book and loved it.
Goofs: When Skinner sends the hamster in the ball for help, he puts a note in as well. However, when the hamster ball crashes into Ned's car, the note was gone. Also, when the car is about to crash into the salt silo, the windshield is intact even though it was broken a couple of minutes before.

(Superintendent Chalmers has just arrived at the school, which is in disarray thanks to the 'survivors'; Skinner is trying to come up with an explanation)

Nelson: There you are! (Over walkie-talkie) Falcon to Eagle, have located Bag of Crap.
Principal Skinner: Nelson, if you get me out of this there's a hall monitor position opening in the Spring.
Nelson: I spit on your monitors.
Principal Skinner: I know. That's why the position's available.
Principal Skinner: Yeech. It's getting ugly out there. Think, Skinner, think. What would Superintendent Chalmers do?

Superintendent Chalmers: Skinner!
Principal Skinner: Eh, that's no help.
Nelson: Hey, look how much Skinner makes--$25,000 a year!

Flanders: Hey, whatever happened to the Plow from your old snow plow business?
Homer: I never had a snow plow business!

Ralph: Mr. Army Man? I can't sleep without my Reggie Rabbit!
Principal Skinner: Is that some sort of plush novelty?

Ralph: It's cold, and hurty!
Homer: Aww, i wanted to see 'em fire a gorilla out of a cannon!
(Bart and Lisa listen to the radio.)
Radio Announcer: The following schools are closed today; Shelbyville, Ogdenville, Ogdenville Tech, and Springfield Elementary...

Radio Announcer: ...My Dear Watson Detective school.
Radio Announcer: And lastly, Springfield Elementary School...

Principal Skinner: (Writing "I ain't not a dorkus" on blackboard) I can't write this; it's a grammatical nightmare! And I got a cramp in my wrist! Bart: Oh, boohoo. After all the times I've done it, my hand sounds like a cement mixer! (Cracks wrist)
(Homer goes to do a snow angel)

Cal Ripken Jr.
Skinner mentions that he's excited he can keep Springfield Elementary open, and thus his 'Cal Ripken-like streak of openage'.
Cal Ripken Jr. was a baseball player for the Baltimore Orioles in the 1980s and 1990s. He played in 2,632 consecutive games, breaking Lou Gehrig's previous streak of 2,131 consecutive games in September of 1995.
Considering there are only 162 games played by a team each season, this was truly an impressive feat spanning years.
The Deer Hunter
Bart shouting "Di di mao" to Principal Skinner while forcing him to play Russian roulette is a parody of Christoper Walken's character being forced to do the same thing in the 1978 film The Deer Hunter.
The Christmas That Almost WAsn't But Then Was:
Part of the title to this poorly-produced Christmas flick is borrowed from an actual yuletide film called The Christmas That Almost Wasn't. The 1966 film had a much different plot: the landowner of the North Pole having to raise enough money to stave off a mizer's threat to foreclosure on Santa Claus' home.
Skinner: We're going to watch my favorite movie about a grinchy little character who tries to steal Christmas.
The plot description given by Skinner makes the class believe they'll be screening the classic Dr. Seuss yuletide tale How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The actual film everyone sees is the black-and-white flick The Christmas That Almost Wasn't But Then Was (prominently displaying the 1938 copyright date!).
The Cirque du Pureé
The eighty dollar circus is an allusion to Cirque du Soleil, a circus with very intricate acrobatics.
Title: Skinner's Sense of Snow
The title is a play on the book/movie Smilla's Sense of Snow, although the story has no relation.
