I don't get this. We'd have to get our asses to school be there 7 feet of snow outside.
I vaguely remember someone told me while I was in school that we could stay home if the temperature fell below 30 degrees celsius. which it never did where I lived.

so, either us scandinavians are hardasses, or there's something wrong in the Us when it comes to being prepared for snowy conditions.

It's february, and I don't have snow tires on. Guess I'm staying home from work!

I really don't understand snow days, never had it here in Sweden (a day off because of snow).
I mean, how could snow be such an hindrance, forcing you to stay at home?
Don't you have snow plows in the US?

That you actually have "snow days" in USA? Oh My God...
A guy i know goes to school in USA, and he wrote on facebook: "Snow day? WTF, It`s only 7 inches of snow!"
I renember when i was about 8 years old, and my mom drove us to school and then drove off to work. IN 50cm SNOW! I mean, we had a ******* old mazda with bad winter tires. And to mention, my dad told me about this day. He dragged up 3 people from the ditch with the tractor. But there were nothing, NOTHING, in the newspaper about "chaos" on the roads. Almost everyone did just fine.
In USA, people were warned about going out in the traffic when it was 20cm snow. It was hell on earth on the road.

So let me ask you, do you even have winter tires or can`t most americans drive?
Ps: I`m Norwegian, suck it!

In the northern states we used to go to school when it snowed a lot, I don't remember how deep it was usually but Michigan in the winter was snowy. problem is southern states aren't as prepared for snow and where I live now (North Carolina) freaks out at snow. mostly because it's ice, but it snowed literally like one day last year. so with usually that little snowfall the don't need to be as prepared as northern states or countries like Norway countries that touch the arctic circle are obviously going to be more prepared.
It's not really that surprising.

To the non-americans bent on making fun of us, there are places in the US that rarely snow. When it does snow, they are not as prepared for it as other states, as in they do not have much experience driving in snow. I live in Colorado where, barring the last few winters, it snows a lot. We almost never have a snow day.

well where i live is a precautionary technique... ice gets bad up in the higher elevated places and if a bus were to crash it could kill everyone on the bus from a 50 foot+ drop

Only the short bus has monster tires.




All of you are going to school.
