Thanks for posting.

Will you have to make up the 5 days of school?

Any words of wisdom (what do you wish you'd had during the power outage?)


Hi YeilB!

We'll find out Monday what the plan may be, but it seems that we'll have to make up the days. We were supposed to have a conference day, but that was made into a regular day, so it comes out to 4 days which have to be made up.

In the northeast, we have the week of President's Day off. However, this may be where the time is made up.

By the way, this is my last year, as I'll be retiring from my district in June, so to be honest, I can handle whatever they throw. ;-)

As far as words of wisdom for the power outage? Well, I was envious of the people with gas instead of electric. It wouldn't have helped with heat, but most people with gas were able to cook on the range top, and enjoy having hot water for showers.

But to be honest, we were as prepared as possible. I had the following covered:

--a full tank and extra tank of propane for the bbq
--a camping percolator (which I was very grateful for!)
--a ton of batteries
--several flashlights
--plenty of canned food on hand
--bags of ice in coolers
--flood insurance (just in case, though we're pretty far enough from the water to not have to worry)
