    It’s going to be sooooo cold here the next couple of days. It’s like 55 degrees now with a big cold front/storm moving it. We’re talking -20 to -40 below zero tomorrow night. That is absolutely unheard of around here!! Anyone else experiencing the same or similar??

    Yeah, we were talking about it in another thread too. It’s -13 with a windchill of -40 here today. Definitely not the norm for us! I’m just so grateful to still have power that I don’t care what happens as long as we keep it though! We had some heavy snowfall and wind action yesterday.

    Yes. 12 inches of snow yesterday and temps today are below 0. Not normal for where I live! Ethan was looking forward to his first day back at school, but it was cancelled. Not sure if they’ll be on for tomorrow. My husband had to go to work, but Ethan and I are in hibernation mode hoping the power/heat stays on.

    Schools were all canceled here today too, and my husband is working from home. I’m not sure what they’ll do tomorrow. I’m not sure I want to send my kid out if it’s still this cold, and it’s supposed to be. :/ Our superintendent HATES to cancel, and I’m really wondering what he’ll do.

    Our school has now been called off for Tuesday, too. Ethan and I have had enough of Christmas break! We’ll have to dig out tomorrow and go somewhere.

    Schools are closed here tomorrow too. And as of now, only one of our vehicles will start. My husband’s car does not like this cold! So Morgan and I will be trapped here, even if the emergency status gets lifted. Come Wednesday I’m getting out of here if it kills me!!

    they canceled school tomorrow too, b/c it’s just too cold to have kids standing at the bus stop, apparently it being -30 there is a danger of frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 15 minutes.

    we turned boiling water into snow after dinner though. the kids got a kick out of it. hubby threw the contents of a pot of boiling water in the air off the back porch and it instantly turned to snow. POOF!

    We’ve had no school the past two days either. The kids were supposed to have an early dismissal tomorrow but it’s been cancelled to make up for lost time I guess.

    No school again tomorrow. The roads are absolute crap. I’M GOING TO LOSE MY MIND!!!

    We did not have schools around here today and I am not sure about tomorrow – it was bitter cold here. We had a high of 9 – which is record breaking. I am over it – makes me very very thankful for our nice home :)

    So far, we are on for school tomorrow. Ethan is so excited and so am I! There are still lots of snow issues, though, so it will be interesting to see how the day goes. Lots of people are actually upset that our district is not off tomorrow since roads in many other districts are still impassible and many teachers are going to have issues getting to school. Plus the kids have no place to stand and wait for the bus since the snow is so deep. Thankfully, we don’t have to worry about the bus for preschool.

    It’s warmed up to 22 degrees today, windchill at 14. But school has been canceled for Thursday for all the county schools so far due to the horrible road conditions. I live on a county road that is heavily trafficked, and it’s still an absolute mess so I shudder to think of what it’s like for those who live farther out.

    I haven’t been out of the house since Saturday.

    This cold season is really a tough time for small ones we have to protect them from cold ,usually it is said that children should be given a layer of cloth more than the elder,

    Yea it’s supposed to be pretty cold here too again. Teens and 20s. I’ll take that over negative temps with a windchill!

    It’s going to be single digits and negatives here pretty soon. Ugh.

    And I read that we may be getting ANOTHER polar vortex late January/early February. They say it may be better, it may be worse. :(
