Today, we've broken records for the cold we're experiencing. The actual temperature is about -18, with a windchill of about -41. Our high, which happened right after midnight, was -3, which was a record-breaker. Then, the "official" low, -16, was also a record-breaker.
We knew this was coming, so many suburban schools decided last Friday that they were going to cancel school for today. But, CPS said no, school will be in session. Shocking.
But, THEN, around 5pm yesterday, they changed their tune. Apparently, the union president, a powerhouse names Karen Lewis, basically TOLD him, school must be closed!! For the safety and well-being of the children, they need to stay home. In this weather, it takes less than 10 minutes to get frost-bite. You can't have kids walking to and from school, or waiting on bus stops. I'm waiting to hear what they decide for tomorrow, as this wacky weather is going to still be around.
Oo, as I was typing this, they broke into the programming with a news conference about the weather. School is cancelled for tomorrow! I'm seriously shocked! Too bad they're going to have to make up both of these days in June. =( But, hey, I WON'T!!! =)
