How much snow you guys get?


Anywhere from a light dusting to up to an inch in our school district.

Not so much as the 1 inch of snow that's a hazard, but rather, the freezing temperatures early in the morning that students who ride the bus must endure (some have to be out there at 5AM if they're the start of the route.) It's a concern for the bus lines rather than the "snow hazards" that disappear by 10AM. By that point, just cancel the whole day instead of causing the bureaucratic nightmare that is starting late. #TheMoreYouKnow

In Mn they build warming huts at the ends of driveways for kids who live in the rural areas.

In Pa I used to walk like a half mine in the show on days it was in the teens out.

I do see the point of it in the south tho. You don’t really have winter clothes the same as we do

Sunflower propane heaters. Some have vented wall hanging heaters

Every weekday morning during the Winter months, millions of young, innocent children are forced to endure freezing & below freezing temperatures while standing idle at the end of their driveways or cul de sacs waiting for the drymounting school bus. Where the drymount is the school bus? It's drymounting freezing out here... and yet they live to see another day courtesy of boots, hats, jackets & mittens aka the SOREL effect :lol:

I agree with this. Grew up in KS and love/miss the snow. But kids/families down here aren't prepared for it at all. We teach in a very low socioeconomic school district and are lucky if kids have jackets. They definitely don't have coats and gloves.
