Top- Beeline Hwy, Bottom- PGA Blvd
Remember that big ol' tropical storm? Yep, Isaac.
Well, saw him today in Indiantown. Yeah, we had school, and he came to IMS to see us. Sigh. It was a stressful day, periods of extreme weather- so bad that we had to hold classes because even walking under covered walkways on our own campus was risky. Water leaks throughout the school, sqeaky sneakers, wet bookbags and pants. Blah.
So...that is going on throughout the day..and then there was the drive home, which I was really dreading. The weather wasn't bad until I crossed over the Palm Beach County line, then the rain and winds were baaaaaaaack.
But the thing that worried me the most...the rising water on either side of Beeline Highway- my route to work. Both sides of the road...water was creepin'...and then once I turned onto PGA, I breathed a sigh of relief, thinking I was in the clear- I actually had two portions of the road to cross that were flooded. Not cool. My litte Honda was not made for this.
You could imagine how relieved I was when I got the email that school was cancelled tomorrow due to flooding and damages. I know, or I at least hope, that the weather will in fact be better...but I don't want to mess around with flooding. No sir.
Came home...passed...out. Seriously, I think I had been stressing about the weather all day, the drive to school, being trapped at school, thunder, lightening, my students possibly walking home or riding the bus in this mess...my coping mechanism? You guessed it- nap.
Woke up, made some art. (#240, shown below) Guess I will do the same tomorrow...but looks like now I have all day. And no reason to go out to any flooded roads. Yay!
