i lived on a cul de sac when i was in grade school, and our bus stop was at the end of the street. it was snowing one morning, and school hadnt been cancelled, so me and the two oldest boys decided that our whole bus stop was declaring our own snow day after the bus was 5 minutes late.
we all grabbed our schoolbags, ran into my house, hid until the bus passed, and then proceeded to have the craziest snow day ever. no parents, no school. it was so awesome. and the best part, is that we didnt even get in trouble for ringleading the event because us older kids kept the younger ones with us all day and made sure they had hats n gloves n stuff to play outside.
