We got yet another snow/sleet/rain/hail storm last night and this morning. All in the space of a few hours. No school locally,, the roads are clear, slushy and slated,, nowadays they stop school if the weather is too cold OUTSIDE!??!!!!!
I drove to work on the unploughed roads in the dark 40 mph no problem,, but those many-tons buses loaded with bodies might slide a little??? The streets were plowed while it was still dark, way before schooltime..
The kids ride on heated buses, have brand new(My elevated tax dollars at work) HVAC systems, still cannot be there if the weather is cold outside!! Gee, I wonder why non Americans see us as wimpy, snoots that WILL NOT endure any discomforts!! They walk about twenty yards to the bus stop and twenty feet from the bus to the heated buildings.
Next it will be our tax dollars buying them all new coats and boots,, oh, I forgot, we already do that ....
off my soapbox..
