Out of curiosity I took a quick Sunday trip to Up-To-Date School in a rural area northeast of Stettler, Alberta. Some of the old school names are creative and interesting. Science Mound School, another former one room school is not too far from this one. I had been here a couple of years ago and it was in bad shape then. I fully expected to see that it had collapsed. I was surprised to see that it was still standing and in pretty much the same shape as my last visit.
We are experiencing a warm spell. Sunday was 9C above. It rained on Saturday. Backroads are not dry and I have no desire to get stuck anywhere. I would rather it be warmer than a lot colder.
