Rain & Wind Drill

I finish up the calendar this morning and pull books from the library for my 'beach instead of snow' theme. It's raining, it's windy, stormy outside and the fire drill goes off. I clear the library and head outside. The fire trucks come and give the all clear as we huddle like emperor penguins under coats and umbrellas. Cover the Sir Gawain books, process some more magazines, take care of two more withdrawing students, check out the shelves to start working on making room for the Environmental books when they come back, finish up the repairs on a couple of books, take some inventory, reset student computers, turn in my picture to Mr. J, answer emails, send out a request for teacher editions of the AGS Physical and Earth Science books for Mrs. C to Judson and Crossler, check in more overdue books, check out some more Sir Gawain, straighten up the magazine spinner rack. We give one of the students a sweatshirt since he has dutifully been cleaning all the overhead projector rolls. Mrs. H goes out to pick up dinner for the P family to help them out and we all chip in.
