Lived out side of Laramie on a ranch , while in college , had a test County roads were closed . The Rancher drove me to town along the Rail Road tracks, got to a gate with links and padlocks, he told me which one his key would open. Spent the night in town at a friends after the test.

I see something like this, EVERY morning on the news. It never fails.
I agree, there seems to be a growing attitude in our country that someone else, in every situation, should be responsible for our safety. People who are stupid enough to rely on that world view, get hurt. Maybe that is not a bad thing, survival of the fittest and all.

My kids are my responsibility. If we took them on a cruise, or any other vacation, then it's up to my husband and I to keep an eye on our child. The way I see it, unless I am PAYING someone to watch my child, then I can't expect anyone else to keep them safe. If I am paying you, then you better be even more anal than I am! :-) Our girls are 12, 11 and 9, and they aren't allowed to go to a friends house unless BOTH my husband and I know BOTH of their parents...and approve. If I don't trust you, I'm sure as hell not going to trust you with my child. Where we live now, I don't trust the vast majority.

As for the snow, we've got a foot out there right now. Schools are all closed, but since my girls are in cyber school, they still have school. Bummer, lol! :-)

Back to the original intent of this thread......it was -25 ambient temp coming into school this morning. It has warmed up to a whopping -21 now. Life goes on as usual at school (except the kids stay in at recess when it is this cold). A bunch of our jr/sr high kids traveled to Greybull early this morning for regional science fair. Kids will still walk from building to building (although not far) for p.e. and music. We got another skiff of snow, but right now it is the cold that is dangerous. It is my opinion that parents are responsible for their kids up to the point that the kids either get to school (if not on a bus) or when they get on the bus. At that point we at school take on the responsibility of their safety until they leave at the end of the day or get off the bus. If we canceled school for every snowstorm or bout of cold we would be in school year 'round!!!!!

Always road the bus and took my lunch to school. We always had to bring a change of clothes when snow was forecast for the drive to Maple wood Washington.

Why does -28 cause a dely in the schools? The wind is zero. That temperature should be well within the range of going about most business as usual provided appropriate clothing is used - perhaps at a slower pace if you are working outside.

I wouldn't hesitate going for a joyride on the snowsled at that temperature. I have done so many times.

Yeah? Wonder if it's because they will plug in bus's this morning, or if they are hard starting when it's -28?
