A school of fish / under the lake ice — deep winter.
Recess, one hour away — thoughts of fun and snow.

Andrew: Wow, that is different. Our kids keep going to school unless it is a bad blizzard (I can't remember the last time there was one bad enough to shut down schools though), or it is below -35C. As for going outside I don't recall ever being told by teachers I couldn't go outside for recess. And I don't recall any kids not going out either. :-)

Borut: And boys (& girls) too(?). :-)

Floots: Thanks.

John: :-)

Pat: I actually like the snow. :-) As for the fish getting cold... it never gets below 0C (32F) down there even if the air temperature is colder than -40! That's because water freezes at 0C -- the layer of ice (2-3 feet) provides lots of insulation. :-)

Polona: For sure.
