Maybe im old and dont remember, but as i sit here watching the news, a banner scrolling along the bottom of the screen lists the schools closed due to the cold temps.

REALLY!!!

I can understand a snow storm, but due to cold? Give me a break!

When did this crap start?

Rant over.

That's my point.... this is Michigan. It is supposed to be cold in the winter.

I dont remember schools closing due to cold. It got cold, we got bundled up and went to school.
Agree... 100%
As a farm kid if the snow was too deep for school bus and school was closed meant ... bundle up there is 10 hours of chores too do ... no excuses ..

But with lawyers suing for this and that ... School districts don't want to have a bus full of kids stranded somewhere becaused it Gelled Up ... or went off the road ..
Its easier to extend school longer into June .. than take risks now in January...
Just M O...

another day .. another bowl of Popcorn

I get all that and can see the point in a rural setting, but SE Michigan is hardly rural.

Its cold.... tough bazookies! Bundle up.

It use to be just snow when schools would close. At least that is what I remember. Usually 6 to 8 inches of it would close school for a day. A foot of it might close school for two days ! Yipee

What this means is that the school buses in that area won't start at those temps.
Bull titties!

We have had school buses since i was a drip on my dads leg and they all started in the cold.

This has to do with wimpy kids.
kids are a reflection of the parents..whimpy parents....ever been at a school when it drizzles rain? they have a cop directing traffic because all the soccer moms picking up the poor kiddies...
