  • Mood:

Wouldn't you wear a jacket on a day the predicted high is 45°F?

Are elementary-school-aged kids immune to cold?

It's presently 45°F (7.2°C) outside with a pretty stiff breeze (20mph/32kph). I walked over to the elementary school in a winter coat, beanie and gloves; tolerable sheltered from the wind, but still cold in the shade. Kids came out of the building in shirt sleeves. Several of them apparently hadn't taken coats at all today.

I was baffled seeing a kid run from a car to the school entrance this morning in shorts and a long-sleeve t-shirt, but seeing teeming masses of little kids without coats on in this weather just boggles.
