I walked about a half-mile to school, even in below zero weather.

During the cold weather Mom always made sure I at least had a bowl of hot oatmeal under my belt...but walking 1/2 mile with that stuff running down my leg was no fun.

I walked 1/2 mi year-round all through elementary school, and 1+ mile for Jr High and High School until I got my license and a car (grad 1965).

Very very many of my best and most instructive real-world socialization lessons and experiences were on the way to/from school (and detours, LOL) as well as the go everywhere/anywhere way of life back then when America was America and skoo was School. And “snow” days when school was closed?.....I think maybe 4 or 5 in my entire public school education.......these days, school is closed twice as many days in just one winter....
