    We were all set to go back after the holidays - and then the cold weather struck! With wind chills between -30 and -40, we are off for the day. And the coldest weather isn't due until the middle of the week! Anyone else???

    It's not quite that cold here--yet--but we are expecting it later this week, and had long stretches of bitter cold last winter. We don't close, but the kids are able to come into the building as soon as they arrive in the morning and won't be going outside for recess.

    It won't get that cold here, but it is going to get in the teens for us here this week, which is significantly colder than it usually is. It should stay dry, so I doubt we will miss any school for it.

    No, back to work today. :) I don't ever remember having a day off for cold temps, but then again, I don't remember it ever being -40 even here in the northeast.

    I guess it's just me, but I don't like it when school is cancelled for weather. We have to make up the day anyway, and I'd rather have the day off another time when I can actually enjoy nice weather.
