    Well, if it makes you feel any better, my school has never closed on the basis of low temperatures.

    We had an "ice day" the second day of school this year (Tyler Junior College). The school apparently didn't want anybody coming in for class because of the ice storm the night before, which left...well, it left icy roads. It's a commuter school with some people coming from as far as 40 miles away, so it makes some sense. We don't really get snow days though, since we rarely get actual snow.

    In California, we had to worry about neither...in exchange, we got all of the Jewish holidays off, which I think is a tacit admission that they administrators felt guilty about us never having snow days

    My school did have school buses yes, but a majority of the elementary students live within 2 miles of their schools so they don't get bus stops even in winter. Its retarded I know, but thats what happens when your community turns down more expensive school budgets every year.

    It's retarded that an American might have to walk up to two miles?

    Like their parents wouldn't drop them off.

    That must be a Scandinavian phenomenon..

    No its retarded that the school cannot provide adequate winter time transportation for small children during days of extremely cold weather. How exactly are parents going to drop their children off at school if they're both working? They don't, and the kids walk, therefore school gets canceled when it gets very cold.

    Still don't get how cold would harm children. Especially in a state like yours that is used to winters with cold and snow = its fair to assume that everyone has a set of clothes that manages the temperature.

    I remember it once got so hot at school (high 40s) that the bitumen on the playground literally melted! Kids were sinking into the asphalt then it all began to delaminate and stick to your shoes. So they sent everybody home to prevent even more damage but too late and it had to be resurfaced

    You guys in the northern hemisphere enjoy yourselves while you freeze your tits off. Meanwhile we're off to balmy Queensland for three weeks - sun, surf, sand etcetera

    Wohoo! Northen hemisphere rules! It is cold here in Toronto, but nothing compared to Montreal, which is nothing compared to Finland, Norway, Nunavut, or Siberia.

    I just looked up the weather for Grise Fiord in Nunavut (that is our northernmost territory) and it is not so great - 82km/h winds, -20, with windchill, -37. Anyways, for the rest of the guys in North America, have you found the winter up until the thrid week of January above normal? It was relatively warm by my standards before - not anymore.

    I wish it would snow here in utah. We hadn't got a good snowfall since last month and now a lot of the snow from that has melted. It's a bummer cause snowboarding on ice really sucks
