I bet those kids went to the movies or just sat by the heater at home
I figured out that schools down south have snow days too. I wondered how that worked since they do not get snow. A snow day in the north is just a cold day. Not even a really cold day either. The temperatures in the south never get that cold. When it hits around 40 degrees, everyone freaks out. The day schools were closed I was outside doing yard work. I can’t believe how weak southerners are with the cold. When I went to school in the north, a snow day was a serious thing. It usually meant no heating at the school. The snow, wind and cold sometimes knocks out the power. If the school can’t provide heating then there is no school. If the windchill outside is too cold for the kids who walk, there is no school. I have to say that anytime I had no school, I had no heating at the house. My electric always was off. My family never bothered with a generator unless it went over a day. We had a whole day with no plumbing, electric or heating. No lights, flushing a toilet, taking a shower and being freezing cold. That is a typical snow day in the north. Those southern kids don’t know how lucky they have it. I bet those kids went to the movies or just sat by the heater at home. A snow day should also make the kids suffer as well. That is what the school wants right? Honestly, the kids could probably play outside comfortably in the south on their snow day. There is just something sort of wrong about that.
