-46 out

This morning it was -46 out. It was so cold that our buses were cancelled. Our students have not had outdoor recess in days. They announces on the radio this morning that we were one of the coldest places on earth....should we be proud?

It will be like this all week.

I was just contemplating posting that I just had to turn my AC on. My bedroom is hot and I could not take it anymore. Tomorrow is expected to be 76. Im in South Carolina.
Stay warm!

We have been unseasonably warm and I just hate it. I don't want it to be as cold as your area but I would LOVE to have snow.

We would never be off school. Our schools are always open. I remember one morning (years ago) it was -55. We were still in school.

I put a fireplace on my whiteboard during students working time. We joke about how it helps us warm up.

-46. Ack

It's -8C (about 20F) here in Vancouver. The P said it was too cold for children to go outside to play. Those of us who grew up on the prairies laughed out loud.

Yes! In the prairies people are in shorts at -8C. Our students would e thrilled with that temperature right now! We would be outside the second it reaches -26 C.

Actually, today on the radio they were talking about a guy everyone sees walking through our city in shorts and a t-shirt. People questioned why one would even think about not putting on layers. People thought he had lost a bet! (-46)

His sister in law called into the radio station and mentioned that he was doing this to toughen up for future police training. He's been doing to for a long time! Cannot imagine!

At that temperature, as soon as you go outside, its hard to breath. Even your car doesn't want to move after warming up for 15 minutes.

TeachingSarah! I was just thinking about you! It's been unseasonably warm here. We had 3 days out of school prior to holiday break though when we had an ice storm. I can't imagine the temperatures you are enduring.

I had to laugh about your mention of putting a fire on the whiteboard. Whatever works!

I have never really experienced an ice storm! Too cold here for it!

I spent Christmas break in Portland and California, I am so glad we did our crazy road trip as it felt great to not see snow! I even pulled out my flip flops!!! Living the dream!

My entire family got a sunburn Christmas day as we were out looking at the Hollywood sign, seeing Rodeo Drive and then going to Venice beach. It was fabulous! We can totally handle this....but we will all complain!

We even put a "campfire" burning on my whiteboard this week as some of my students have never been to the forest. It honestly helps us feel warmer! The indoor recess is the hardest part.

TeachingSarah, oh how I hate indoor recess. We are wimps here. If the wind chill is 32F, we have to stay inside. We have about 120 students in our rotation and no gym available for our recess. We have to put them in the hallway to play board games. They are so loud!

Indoor recess is one thing I will not miss when I retire.

Your trip to California sounds wonderful. I've never been there, but I have been to other Western States. I would love to travel north of the border to see the Canadian Rockies. I need to get paperwork in order though. Do you think they'll let me in? I may be tempted to stay.

I live in NC and it was 66 degrees Fahrenheit this morning. I was quite cranky because I'm in Michigan. But I will shut up and enjoy the current weather!

I hope you get a warm spell soon!!!!

I cannot imagine such a deepfreeze. I'm one of those wimpy SoCal people who think 65F is cold. It is 57F outside right now with an expected high of 59F, and I'm considering wearing my heavy parka.

I also just returned from Seattle where it was 32F and snowing, and everything came to a standstill. Getting to the light rail station to get to the airport yesterday was interesting because of the icy roads. The first two days of this week school started two hours later, and today it was canceled completely.

TeachingSarah, so school is still in session, but how do the kids get to school without buses? Do parents drive them? Do they walk?

Edgar Cayce (The Sleeping Prophet) said in the early 20th Century that the safest place to be in the 21st Century would be Saskatchewan, because it is the exact center of the land mass. He also predicted that many areas of the east and west coasts of the U.S. would be underwater by end of 21st Century. We are already seeing the increasingly intense and crazy weather patterns and natural disasters.

So enjoy your weather. Buy up some real estate. You may soon see a mass immigration!

P.S. I'm already on the Canadian Border, and the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River have had terrible, unprecedented flooding since 2017.

Love that comment! In all honestly Saskatchewan is beautiful! It really is! We only have cold and snow to deal with. We really have no natural disasters at all!

This temperature is laughable, it is soooooooooo cold we cannot even believe it!

Today was colder! At 11:00 my students asked the temperature, I said....it warmed up...it was -50 at that time.

I will start looking to buy land!

School is still in session! We will never close schools here. Kids will get driven to school or they walk. The kids that walk, I fear for them. I truly do! It makes me very nervous to hear they are working. I do not let them leave school until they are fully covered. Then I ask, how long is your walk? Then I tell them to walk fast!

I was beyond impressed today. My admin team called the police to come help with traffic. They made a plan to get hundreds of kids into cars quickly. The admin team sent out a note to parents and explained how it would happen. In about 20 min, about 700 students, (could have been less as not all kids can come to school, we have 880)were on there way home. So impressed!

Indoor recess is killing us slowly! Honestly the kids are AMAZING! Considering they have not been out this week!

California was amazing! We did some of the national parks, warner brothers studios, Universal studios, etc. So great! If you want our route, let me know!

GO to the Rockies! So amazing! You need to come to Canada! Some areas are not that cold! You will survive!
