It was minus 20* here this morning which is below 0*F. I warmed my bus up, did my safety check and headed out to collect the kids. About halfway through the run, the little kindergarten in the seat behind me started crying loudly. I pulled over and checked on her. She touched her tongue to the metal surrounding the window and it had frozen. Most Canadian kids have only ever tried this once because it hurts so bad. I had to keep her from panicking and ripping off her tongue. I tried to warm the metal with my fingers, no luck. Blood was flowing and freezing her tongue further to the bus window. I finally flagged down a car and sent the person to the nearest house for a bowl of warm water. It took 2 bowls but we finally freed little Katie from the window. I called the school and made sure the someone was going to meet me and get Katie more medical attention. My other students were great, orderly and helpful. We all gave Katie a round of applause for being so brave. Lesson learned: Don't do what katie did.
