School's Out / In

I remember the number one reason for getting off school in primary school was frozen pipes, leading to a lack of water and probably heating.

That and a sprinkling of snow - Ireland rarely gets much, so everything comes to a standstill when we get a smidgen!

It looks like these students are a hardier bunch.

In my primary school we we're allowed drink from the taps because slugs came out of them on occasion. And in Mount Temple we were all wondering what this odd smell was and then we were told it was a rat that died in the ceiling and they couldn't get it out for ages. That's pretty hardcore too...

in jeddah, saudi arabia, everything came to a standstill before the rain even falls... students were asked to go home fearing that another floods would happen again...
