I was ready for this, and had looked at the weather report before going to bed with said,
"A WIND CHILL ADVISORY MEANS THAT VERY COLD AIR AND STRONG WINDS WILL COMBINE TO GENERATE LOW WIND CHILLS. THIS WILL RESULT IN FROST BITE AND LEAD TO HYPOTHERMIA IF PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN. WHEN VENTURING OUTDOORS...MAKE SURE YOU WEAR A HAT AND GLOVES."So I reasoned that as long as they were bundled up properly (as they do every morning I send them off to school) they would be fine. Several of my wife Facebook friends clearly agreed with my wife (and one with me). In the end, I get to make the decision.
So I walked to school with them.
We got ready for school. They were bundled up before I was, so I suggested they could start without me, and I would catch up. I figured they would rather stay with me in the warm house. However Cecelia said, "Ok!" and then told Maeve, "Let's hurry and try to beat him!" And off they went.

|It was a rather pretty walk. We heard Chickadees along the way!|

After that, I decided not to worry about these really cold mornings. Especially when the weather forecasters are clearly telling us to be sure to bundle up.
