So, I want to preface this by saying that I’m safe. We’re all safe at my house. While it stormed badly last night, we didn’t get hit by any of the tornadoes.
My husband woke me up late last night and we sat in the hallway that connects the bedroom in our house, because it’s the only place that doesn’t have windows. (We don’t have a basement.) We waited, listening to the wind roar through the trees outside.
Today was a really, really hard day. I’ve been worrying about the students I hadn’t heard from, but up until this point I’ve been somewhat able to ignore those worries. Well, yesterday evening the Official Call went out to the district about this not being just an extended spring break.
So I waited until lunchtime today in case I got any stragglers. And then I started attempting to make contact with those who’d dropped off the map.
