it's -45 and your kid is walking to school?! REALLY?! ***update for today**

Posted by   + Show Post

This orning the temp is -30 -35  and with the windchill it is -45. 

so of course, i run out and start my car as soon as we get up, let it warm up while ds6 gets dressed and me and ds2 get dressed. 

eat breakfast and get in the car to drive ds the 3 blocks to school. 

and what do i see? his littl buddy wyatt, who is also 6, WALKING and he lives a block farther down the road!!!!!

well of course i went and picked him up and gave him a ride, you cant just let your little kids walk with a -45 windchill!!!!

his moms minivan was just sitting in the driveway......i saw a few more kids walking to school after i dropped ds and his lil buddy off. 

wth?! if my suv didnt start this morning, ds would have been staying home, plain and simple.


gah!!

itand once again today i look out the window and its sitting right at -35. yay. go outside to start my car, which by the way? we plug them in at night. well poor bessy barely managed to start shiver me timber my boobs were two blocks of painful ice just in the half a min it took to start the car!!!!

well of course i let that puppy run a good 15 min. yes i did. **sricks tongue out** 

we were running late, and just as i drop ds off at school, i get a text from his teacher checking to make sure he wasnt walking because he hadnt reached school yet and it was so cold she was worried :-)  it was only 8:45, bell had rung only 5 min ago.  a mom HAS to appreciate that her kids teacher cares enough to check on these things with you asap and in person, kwim?

anyways, no kids were walking today either. -47 with the windchill ( a neighbor just posted on facebook) 

and that btw, is CELCIUS

that just makes no sense lol

Quoting KRISTAL_WILDER:

 Interesting our -15 is your -26, your -35 is -31 in fahrenheit , but your -45 is -49 to us. Conversion calulator


Quoting D.O.E.:

lol honestly, i have no idea off the top of my head

Quoting KRISTAL_WILDER:

 I'm guessing she means Fahrenheit. Which is much colder than your -15. When i seen you post i was like whoa then i realized you meant a celcius. So what is your -35 in fahrenheit i wonder.


Quoting D.O.E.:

lol its just -15! lol whats the delays for? 

Quoting isleysmom:

My kids are on a two-hour delay this morning because wind chills are -15. I thought of this post when I saw the delay. LOL. Does that mean I spend too much time on Cafemom?
