hehe…. I grew up in Michigan, and thought that was cold. Then I moved to northern China, where December – February temperatures are -20 to -30 for 3 months solid, NOT including wind chill (and yes, it gets windy).
I was glad to escape to DC this winter, where everyone warned me how ‘cold’ it was going to be – hovering right around freezing, I’m happy with fall jacket and a cute (rather than functional) scarf!

17 Degrees! That would feel amazing right now. Its gets so much colder here. The only reason I could see them cancelling is if their heating system is bad. Here school is usually cancelled or delayed because its very rural and the plows don’t make it out that early or even to everyone. It drifts real bad out in the country too. They cancelled one day of college classes this year because it was literally blizzard like conditions with a foot of snow on the ground and more falling…anything short of that and we are going. I know we used to get out early on hot days at my hs because it would be over 100 degrees and our school had no air conditioning (the stinking elem and ms did, but not us)…still it usually had to be really bad. I remember sitting in class with the shades drawn and the lights off on those days…haha. I feel so backwoods sometimes.
