I'm sure THEY don't cancel school every time temps drop into the negative. Ridiculous.

They are use to temps like that. We don't close for negative temps here in ND either, but that's normal weather for us.

They are used to it. Other areas aren't. They are also more prepared for it because it is expected. 

It's going to be in the teens here (Arkansas) the next couple of days and I have no intention of leaving the house at all. Not used to it. And only the baby has a hat and gloves, my husband and I don't. They aren't ever needed.

Right? And we wonder why people in their 20's bitch about having to drive to work in the snow. They have grown up thinking all responsbility goes out the window when there in inclimate weather. lol!

Colorado.
We were about a solid week of below zero temps not long ago. School was never canceled.
Also you can call in an excused absince for your kid due to incliment weather if school is not called off but you judge it to be a safety hazard.
