I agree with the policy of camping in all types of weather, but I think if
school is dismissed due to the weather, that's a good sign you shouldn't
Maybe this is not a problem in other parts of the country, but here in the
normally warm south, when cold weather and rain combine to form ice, the
IQ of our drivers drops with the temperature. I work at a hospital, so I
don't have a choice about going to work, and it would be nice if there
weren't a lot of people on the road trying to get to (relatively, mind
you) trivial things such as scout meetings and the grocery store.
Last week/weekend we had rain, followed by a temperature drop to 10F. This
may not be an issue in northern climates where you're used to it, but we
had 14 weather-related deaths, several of which were driving accidents.
