oh...joy...

As always, I have the WGN Morning News on right now, and Paul just said that our heat index for today will be about 105. And, no, I haven't moved to Arizona.

Well, the past 2 days were wonderful. I was able to attend the Illinois Summer Reading Conference. More on that later. I have no idea how yesterday went at the Hell-Hole, but I found out the on Wednesday, they spent almost the entire day without power. Um...yeah. So, not only have we been under a severe heat advisory, the teachers and kids didn't have even so much as a fan all day. But, because school is a 'safe haven' for students, they had to keep all the kids there, and couldn't send anyone home. Can you imagine?

I'm trying to decide if I should bother to even take a shower right now, since about 10 minutes after I get to school, I'll be soaked in sweat anyway. Now that's a pleasant image, isn't it? Aw, I guess I will, since I can't get these little rug rats to stop hugging me, and now that haven't seen me for 2 days, so I'm sure they'll be extra huggy today. Guess it's time to get off the computer...

SO there is one good thing about looping. You and the kids don't have to get to know each other and they love you already. How many of the kids from last year do you have and how is it going? Other thasn baking to death of course.

Oh wow. Year round should not be allowed without a/c. It is like having school in the winter without heat..absurd.
