Not only did we not have recess we didn't get snow days. I remember an ice storm and the school was open. None of the kids or teachers that lived down the hill from the school made it in that day and we tried for over an hour to get there. I remember everybody's shock and amazement at getting sent home early once because of a storm, but the entire northeast shut down for that one. Evil, evil, evil administration

Yah, that's extreme. Sounds like they had some real losers in that school administration.

Lovin’ that resort!!! :)

Kinda’ reminds me of the mid-century modern El Tropicano Hotel built on the San Antonio River Walk back in 1962. DWifey and I stayed there for the weekend of our 27th anniversary...!!!!! :happy::)

Yes, totally similar. So that style is mid-century modern. Good to know. I really like it. Plus the colors that they chose are beautiful, vivid, and bright. I am excited to stay there. Maybe you guys try Universal once?

The NYC public schools rarely had snow days. I maybe had one in high school. I do remember 1 in 7th grade. That was I think April ‘83? We got dumped with 2 feet of snow. None of the roads got plowed. We could walk right in the middle of all the streets because there were no vehicles. It was awesome!

That's the cliche joke that grandparents are supposedly famous for.

In reality I took the school bus ;):)
I walked those miles. ;) Well, I did until high school. Then I took a bus. :hilarious: In reality I think the walk felt like 13 miles. I know my walk home was all uphill, but it was only a 10 minite walk. Where we live there are no sidewalks, so everyone who uses the elementary school by me, which is probably 1 mile away from my house, is required to take a bus.
