It snowed last night, about 1 - 2 inches. Today, saturday, a lot of activities were cancelled or set back 2 hours. Had it been a school day, a lot of schools whould have closed. (I did notice the basketball sectionals will go on as usual)
When I was school age, back in the dark ages, I walked 5 miles - no that would have been my grandparents - I walked 5 blocks to school every day, rain, snow or shine. We were not transported by school busses, a lot of families (like mine) did not have cars, so we walked, and walked, and walked. I don't remember schools closing due to weather, so either we got there or we didn't. I do remember schools closing early due to excessive heat, but not snow.
If I had boots, I don't remember them. I do know that if you got to school & your shoes were soaking wet, you got sent home. Do you know how many puddles there are in 5 blocks that must be walked through? Lots & lots & lots, not that I would deliberately walk through them. Oh no, not me. Another thing I didn't do, & that was button my coat. No, that wasn't stylish. (I still rarely button my coat, but of course I have a nice warm car & drive door to door.) Also I've learned to stay out of puddles. It ruins your shoes.
