I remember back in January 1996 when the northeast first had a blizzard, and then it immediately warmed up and we had a flood! It's looking a lot like it did back then right now. We had half a day yesteday because someone panicked at the weather report---we never got the freezing rain until after 6PM. But it has since warmed up and it's flooding out. Not bad...small stream flooding and some low field flooding. I've made a few sprays with the bus going through the little bit of water that's running over the road...which, shh, was kind of fun. The water is poring off the rocks in one of the small towns south of mine....like little water falls...right next to the solid ice cycles hanging down...very pretty actually.
Instead of griping about the idiots at church, gonna change gears and have a good laugh at Headstart. After the start of this year, we were supposed to have bus monitors start riding with us. They do come in handy in an emergency. But.....they advertised so poorly in this town that they'd only had one person apply. ONE person!!!!! There are two busses. So, no matter what, the teachers and aides are supposed to start taking turns riding starting this Friday. Uhm...we tried this before and it didn't work and Central Office got an extension. So...they're actually going to try and fight it! Like, what's Central Office going to do? Fire all six of them? LOL. I'm glad that I'm a contracted driver and that I don't actually work for Headstart directly...they'd drive me completely nuts and I've got enough to handle!
