My what pansies we have become. Far as I know, it didn't ice the sidewalks. Is it perhaps that parents don't have the proper clothing for the kids? Or the kids are too 'trendy' to wear proper outdoor clothing?

I'm a northern kid and yeah it DID get really cold, but it's not the first time in this area. As long as kids don't have to stand on the bus stop for too long it shouldn't be a problem if you're well dressed. I remember long johns, heavy socks warm shoes if not boots and layered clothing.

They're not going to STAY outside are they? They get to school, put away their coats, hats and gloves and get on with school inside. Then it's on the bus again and home. What's the big deal?
