Australia I went to school in Sydney, and don't know how to reference that — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cityrailsaints (talkcontribs) 09:20, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Adding a {{globalize/USA}} tag[edit]

I've added this tag because the article is very skewed towards American practice. Actually, it's extremely skewed in that direction; apart from a one-word nod to Canada, the only non-US coverage is a paragraph devoted to the United Kingdom, which is not one of the world's hotspots for extreme weather conditions! To be honest, a large proportion of the article reads to me as though it's intended almost exclusively for American readers, making assumptions which do not necessarily hold for the rest of the world. (One example to make the point: "local elected officials" - in Britain, police chiefs, for example, are always appointed, not elected.) Anyway, I'll stop whinging now and start thinking of ways to improve the article! Loganberry (Talk) 03:28, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

It's by and for Californians. Geography is not taught there and they have only the vaguest suspicion that places other than California exist. Michael Hardy (talk) 16:59, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Everyone drop the base

Regionalism?[edit]

The term "snow day" seems to be promoted by Hollywood. I've never known it as part of the vernacular language. I wonder if it is a regionalism used in places like California (hence Hollywood) where schools are closed every time it snows. Only if one closes schools every time it snows would it make sense to use the term "snow day" to refer to such an occasion. (But I wonder if maybe younger people use the term because of its promotion by Hollywood.) Michael Hardy (talk) 18:01, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

At Wikipedia's language reference desk, I find that the geographic distribution of the use of this locution before that movie came out in 2000 is a somewhat more involved matter than I'd apprecciated. Michael Hardy (talk) 17:56, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
LOL no, at least not many. --67.55.135.211 (talk) 14:40, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

"Heat Days"[edit]

This article makes no reference to school cancellation related to Extreme heat. I live in Australia and I am 16, whenever the weather is above 40 Celsius than Schools without air conditionings must close and send students home. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 114.78.41.104 (talk) 09:26, 4 September 2009 (UTC)
