LOL That's okay, I'm the same way Right now our forecast for the week is

45/34 45/39 46/39 48/39 52/45
And I'm complaining nonstop about the cold. So much shame (ironically, I'm also complaining nonstop about the fact that we aren't getting any snow).

I know! It's suppose to get down to 19 tonight and not get above 38 tomorrow. I can't wait until it's summer so I can bitch about the heat.

Come to Germany, it's basically spring here. We have a high of 55 today and it's sunny. I'm starting to questions if its actually winter.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

They cancelled school today because the temps aren't supposed to get above 10. The thought students waiting at the bus stop in the dark in negative temperatures must have been enough to encourage officials to cancel.

Smart, since I had at least a few students yesterday come to school without jackets...

I can feel the cold and I haven't even gone outside yet. About to walk the dog right now and I'm dreading it. I have to go to work today too which is going to absolutely suck since we spend a good portion of our day outside walking dogs and I have minimal winter gear.

It's more than that.

Our students wear uniforms, and khaki shorts/pants and maroon knit polos are only so warm. Since all layers would have to go on top of the uniform in order to comply, you're talking many, many layers of clothes in order to get kids waiting in 18'degree temps (not including the wind chill factor) for the buses. Then once they get to,school, where do all those layers get stored? It's not like we have cubbies for the kids or anything. And that's figuring in that parents even have sufficient cold weather gear for children down here in good ol' southeast Louisiana.

But the other main factor is school pipes. We don't build our buildings to the specifications that I'm sure y'all do in terms of extreme cold temps. Especially considering our much older school buildings, pipes are in danger of bursting due to the extreme temp fluctuations. In fact, pipes busted at two of our elementary schools and the highschool. School was supposed to resume today, but was pushed back day. Parents grumbled, but they would've grumbled even more after having to figure out what to do with kids once buses were turned round and those in carpool were told to go home. At least parents had 36 hours warning instead of 5-10 minutes in regard to making accommodations for care for their kids.

As it is, we had all our pipes rewrapped last year, and here I sit in my house with the water shut off because a copper part of one pipe has a 2 inch crack in it and turned my backyard into an iceskating rink.

I spent my night breaking ice out of my horses water buckets and our trough.

Laugh, but there's no way for us to truly be prepared down here for such temps. Sunday it was 75 degrees. Monday it was 30 (the high).
The Hokey Pokey. That's what it's all about.

Well North America can you sort your weather out please, because you're REALLY screwing ours up big time.

Weird and mild. MASSIVE storms. Tidal surges 4m above high tide mark, massive damage done to coasts around the country, including our local coast, rain, rain, rain, rain, rain and flooded rivers, 100mph winds....

Stop it!
