Hurricane Sandy

Very thankful that here in my part of Virginia we escape the major wrath of Hurricane Sandy--our lights flickered a few times but luckily, we didn't lose power. We did have some heavy rains. some fallen trees and some really strong winds, but nothing like they experienced up in New York and New Jersey. The pictures and footage I've seen are just awful--those people are definitely in my prayers! :(

Today is our second day of a "hurricane day" off from school and I've actually been shockingly productive with getting work done. We are very close to the end of the 1st grading period, so it's more or less our crunch time--yikes! My stack of grading has dwindled down to almost nothing (should be all done by the end of the day) and I will actually have time to input grades into my computer. Not sure how all of this would have gotten done without having those two days off, but I'm just so glad we didn't have major damage in our area and am definitely thinking about those who were not quite as fortunate. :(

Also, should anyone need any information about ANYTHING related to Hurricane Sandy, just ask me and I'll refer you to my dad, who has watch news coverage non-stop for the last couple of days. He seriously could give some of the reporters a run for their money...haha. :)
