We're on Jeanne now, this incidentially is number FOUR, of our lovely hurricanes to hit within the last two months. Do you realize only ONE weekend have I NOT gone out to buy water and restock supplies...that's just a side note. EVERY hurricane has intersected our county. This one was the worst. We have just shingles down, but others haven't been as fortunate from downed fences, no electricity, water and many homes, businesses and schools have been damaged. Lives are devestated. BUT somehow we persevere. One lady said God does not give us more than we can handle, well unfortunately many are at their limit. We anticipate that most of our Christmas holiday will be gone this year, which isn't going over well with all. We are trying to get our standardized testing postponed or eliminated for the year. We'd prefer eliminated. So many people are at an all time stress high that these days of teaching aren't as productive as they could be. To evaluate kids based on the craziness of this year isn't fair. Not to mention the stress on teachers to perform to "meet the grade".
Whew...just a rough hurricane season. Yes, and Karl and Lisa are out in the Atlantic waiting to visit Florida. My suggestion, just keep crusing on the high seas...Florida is done.
