School was closed today. No, it's not snowing, or icy on the roads or anything. It's just cold. They closed schools today because it's cold? Yeah, I know it's because they're worried about kids walking to school, or waiting for the bus - but the parent that will let their kid walk to school in -12 degree weather, will probably let their kid "play outside" today when they're home. Shutting the schools down won't make the parents be more aware.

On the news last night they grabbed a parent for a quote: "Closing the schools down because it's cold?! That's crazy! We're making our kids soft!" She was from Minnesota were it is currently 27 F. But she makes a good point. We don't get the day off from work because it's cold. What are we REALLY teaching them? Dress like an idiot and you get days off?! These same idiot kids (and parents for that matter) will be complaining that they are still in school the last week of June and it's SOOOO HOT!
