It's not a problem that I have (my kids are old enough to get to school on their own) but a lot of people are having to take time off work to get their kids to school late. Seems to me that it would be better for school employees to go in early than ask thousands of parents to miss work... And again, it's cold but it's not THAT cold, especially not here along the coast. I don't get it but my opinion doesn't count.

as one who lives in a winter wonderland...I can't help but laugh at the reactions of places when they get a little taste of it.


Haha same. Where in Canada do you live? It's been awful here in Winnipeg this year. They said on the radio that it was colder here on New Year's Eve than it was at the North Pole.

Suppose to be nice here this weekend though, highs of -6C on Friday and Saturday. That's shorts weather for a Canadian!

We are not the only ones closing or delaying schools

 

 

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton has ordered all Minnesota public schools to close statewide Monday as dangerous cold looms. Forecasters are expecting frigid temperatures to arrive Sunday night and stay through Tuesday morning. Wind chill readings could plummet to 60 degrees below zero Monday morning

 

 

Minnesota is one of those winter wonderlands.  :)

I left my dads place on Sunday at halftime of GB/SF trying to get home before the third Q. Got to my area and all the power was out due to the cold weather and everyone cranking there heat (hydro said). Couldn't get into my garage due to the power being out and was stuck in my shorts in my truck for the whole third Q.

I believe there are people in Toronto that were without power for a week, just last week due to the cold.
