That's right, I'm from 'up north,' and we had off of school today because of the cold weather! And to really make you southeners mad, we're off tomorrow, as well.

Today, the average temperature was -10F, the average windchill was -30F, and the high was 0F. We expect similar conditions tomorrow!

Is anyone else experiencing similar weather?

HAHAHA...I'm in MA right now, and early this morning was as cold as 4 degrees ferenheight (SP?)

My cousins school was cancelled, because it was stated that if you stood outside more than 5 minutes, you would get frostbyte.

kinda funny, if you think about it

The temperature here was about that today. :[ School wasn't cancelled though. They never cancel for extreme cold here; they only cancel for bad weather/driving conditions. On days like today they just keep kids inside for recesses and whatnot. @_@;

I wish I could get days off when it's cold like this. XD It sucked walking home, but at least there wasn't too much wind.

o.o I have to walk home for lunch (and back, as well as walk to school (and back..) and it felt like my ears and my forehead were being cut. The wind was just horrible. If you took the wind away, I could stand outside in my tshirt and jersey, and says "Huh, its prete warm out today" xD Oh, and now sionce Semester2 ahs started, I have to go outside to a portable for my period 2 class, which is the best class ever (Hands Down).

Because of the weather I'm off school today after being off yesterday as well. I would be pleased, except school pretty much gives my life meaning these days.

We've had quite cold weather where I live at the moment, but not as bad as -30F X_x Recently it's been between 0F - -20F.

Around -19C where I am currently at my school. I was off yesterday due to the windchill being around -30C. But yeah it's pretty darn cold, luckily recess has been cancelled today.

Nyu, cold weather here as well. Forecast says it'll be -25C where I live, and that's on the coast where the temperatures are mellow. On the east border we've got temperatures around -40. o.o Meh, we never get days off from school because of the temperature, though, at least not unless it's so cold that the friggen' cars freeze up. xP

Our area has already had our cold day. In mid-January, we were dismissed from school early and had school off the next day due to the temperature being around -40°C with the windchill.

It hasn't gotten THAT cold out where I am, but we just got out of our cold snap today (it's been in the teens and 20s for the last week)

And here I thought it was global warming.

It's cold where I live, in Connecticut of USA. I'm wearing a winter coat and two shirts now as I sit in my living room. It's cold. I still have school, due to it being a college where the professors make the call on whether class occurs or not. So I still have to bundle up in 7 degrees weather for classes.

It just feels weird due to the warmer weather that we had in the past months. Even up here we had buds on the trees in December...which are now gone.

Well, it's warm here now, but a few weeks ago it dipped into the lower 30's. I LOVED IT. XD

We had to cancel school because of icy conditions, and I'm in HOUSTON. Rarity.

And before that, it was in the 60's and 70's, then suddenly dropped.

Yeah like you're from "up north USA". Canada has some pretty nasty winter weather. Right now, the temperature here is around -15C (5F), which strangely is "warmer" than the temps you've described.
Where I live, schools and universities still require students to go to class even at -40C weather. I don't think I've ever had a school day off because of cold weather. I have to laugh at those from the West coast and the South, because school halts when a light dusting of snow is in the forecast. :cheeky:

Global warming? Nope. Feels like global cooling lol.

Nah, it's actually still summer here. Been hot since last year's November. No matter how serious it gets, I've yet to witness a school day get cancelled due to extreme weather. We endure swimming galas in heavy hail, being told that the downfall only urges us to swim that much faster. No one really cares about winning though, we just want to exit the pool and rush to safety. The school won't even consider building an indoor pool. For such an expensive, private school, it sure is cheap. It could also be that our weather never gets as bad as it does in the USA and other unfortunate countries. We don't even get snow here.

I had a snow day yesterday. And we had a 90 minute delay today. Last year there were so many snow days that we got out of school waaaaaay late. *_*

And yet oddly, when I lived in northern Utah, surrounded by ski resorts and WAY more snow than where I live now, we never had a single snow day. oO
