Blizzard Bags Making News Across North America

As we were discussing Blizzard Bags at work this past week, I noticed my phone had an incoming call from Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia. Since we were in a meeting, I let the call go to voicemail. Ironically, when I checked the message a bit later, the call was from to discuss Blizzard Bags.  The call was from Paul Bennett, a professor and consultant from Canada who has spent some time on this topic. Mr. Bennett has voiced concerns for quite a while on the need for schools to ensure continuity for students when bad weather interferes. He wrote a piece back in 2010 titled Schools Out, Again: Why "throw-away' school days hurt students where he cited concerns regarding lost time due to weather in the Province of Nova Scotia.

Anyway, here are a few of the stories regarding Blizzard Bags that have been in the news over the past week:
