If the Pizza places are delayed 2 hours too, I might just lose it!

Oh and BTW, the Long Island city data page has a discussion about 2-hour school delays right now and they're roughly the same air temperature as us currently. I guess all those northerners aren't as hardy as we though!

New Flash it's not just our local school systems.

I just noticed Fairfax County, VA has cancelled school today altogether. They are currently 3 degrees colder than us in Raleigh and will reach a high of 19 today, which is not too different than us. I guess they just can't take it up there like we can here

Not if they deliver pizza's with diesel busses.

(Seems to me the better idea would be to cancel school for the day, and just have them deliver Pizza's to all the kids ....at home ....in about two hours.)

After about a year, people adapt to the weather in the area that they live. So...if you are from the North and you have lived here a year, you are going to be the one doing the most complaining about the cold!!! I know this. I have relatives from NY! And many many friends from NY and NJ.

And yes, my Florida relatives and friends complain about the heat too!!!

So...Mike, what time are you ordered the pizza? I like cheese pizza that tastes like it came from New York!!!

Only the one who move here. They never took a day off for snow or inclement weather!

The ones still back up north regularly delay or miss school etc. They just don't want you to know about it.

How do you know who those really tough former northerners are when you are out and about in the Triangle today? They will be wearing shorts and flip flops, just to prove a point.

For example, homeless people in Florida have likely never had to survive more cold than a blanket can remedy.

Likewise, 100 degrees here is a conversation piece. If it were 100 degrees in "the North", people start dying because they aren't equipped to deal with the heat like we are here. Some older houses just don't have air conditioning. Should we then berate them about their character-building?
What the heck are you talking about? Duh, of course it's about perspective. I didn't berate anyone. That's why I said I was posting it "just for fun." Jheez! But thanks for the lecture.

Today, which is the "tomorrow" mentioned at the beginning of this thread, has turned out to be beautiful. People who live in a four-season climate should expect some winter, and be prepared for it. Today is just about as good as a winter's day can get! Enjoy, because it won't last for long . . .
