Happy Bunny and NO School- Snow Day #7!

img_8977That’s right.  No school again today because of ice.  And, I just saw a snow plow so that means no school tomorrow.  I’m wondering what happens in places like Canada or many other places where it snows and rains down ice every day.  Are the kids tougher, have studded shoes, drive better cars?  Better plows?

And Donald Trump will start his evil reign tomorrow.  I need yoga more than ever.

  1. Nice bunny! Beautiful strokes! You were wondering what we do where they get more snow. Our storms may be 6 to 12 inches of snow, but people are used to driving in it. A little snow won’t cause a snow day. Zero visibility and drifting or icy roads will get the kids out of school. We usually have 4 or 5 snow days, after 2 they have to make them up. A blizzard never seems to stop drivers in town, by February it’s stacked high enough on the side of the road you can’t see around the corner. We have sun dogs in minus degree weather, you can google that one for an image! I have an image on my blog.

    1. I will wander on over and look at your picture. Bottom line is that we aren’t very tough or prepared here. It used to snow a lot her like 30 years ago but hardly snows and sticks around anymore. We are getting lots of ice and that makes the school district paranoid. Several years ago there was a terrible ice storm and they didn’t cancel and people got hurt. Lots of broken arms and wrists. It’s freezing now and there is a lot of water on the roads and I’m afraid they will cancel tomorrow too. I am going nuts, January already pushes me to the limits of sanity….

  2. I don’t think there was a single snow day in the 3 years I lived in Alaska. Snow plows stay on top of it and people are used to driving in icy/snowy conditions. Studded tires and chains are common for cars and people wear traction cleats on their shoes so they don’t slip on the ice. Also, they didn’t salt the roads, they sanded them and if it was really icy they put little rocks down. Where I lived, they used dump trucks to transport the snow out of congested areas instead of just pushing it all to the side so parking lots and side walks could still be used and most businesses could be accessible.

    1. Man, you guys are tougher than us. You’d think that in Idaho we figure out how to do this better. If we were in CA where I grew up they would shut down the town over 1/4″ of snow. Seriously. A few years ago there was a week of sub zero temps and then it suddenly heated up and rained a lot. There was a half inch of ice everywhere and they didn’t cancel school and a lot of people got hurt. It was nuts.

  3. Lots of plows and sanders out on the roads in MI. They only cancel school for icing, temps below -25 (for walkers) or windy whiteout conditions. You just get used to it.

    1. -25! You guys are tough! I lived in Boston for a year and it got that cold once and I thought my life was going to end. And they didn’t cancel anything, and I was a pregnant school teacher with no kids, I would have welcomed the days off. They did cancel for a tropical storm. But snow, cold, and horrible freezing rain was nothing to them. I’m learning that Boisians are delicate. I’m a wimpy Californian. Bring on the rain.
