I don't know about this list - - - I believe it WAS true when I was a girl in Hayward, but a TON O SCHOOLS are cancelled round these here parts tomorrow and the low tonight is ONLY supposed to be -14.

I believe even we Wisconsinites may be getting soft.

Sign of the times I guess.

This is no lie - - - when I was going to elementary school right across the street from the THEN Hayward Wesleyan, the SCHOOL RULE was we HAD to play OUTDOORS at recess until the temp was 20 below zero. If it got colder than that, we were allowed to have recess indoors.

I don't remember ANY indoor recesses.

I DO however, remember PLENTY of recesses where we stood like cattle in a circle breathing on each other TRYING to stay warm.

I also remember giving my mittens to a friend who had none because I knew I had another pair at home, across the street, in my drawer and I could get them at lunch and wear them back to school while she had NONE and needed mine.
