    First checking on those who are around Missouri...hopefully everyone is safe & sound!!!

    2nd woke up to thunder & lightning...not a big deal, but weird when there is snow & it's not raining, but freezing rain & pellets!!! The outside has a weird color with the clouds & the snow reflecting...kinda eery!!!

    We got another 4 inches of snow last night and this morning, and now it's raining. Very crazy.

    It POURED all day. We went out to lunch and got drenched! It is right at the freezing point but no slippery roads yet. On top of that the lights kept going on and off in our school and the kids were nuts! I am glad I am home now.

    March came in like a lion!

    Here in Missouri, we woke up to tornado sirens at 4:30 am. Some tornados hit the rural areas. A few hours southeast of here, a little girl died when a tornado hit her family's mobile home. :(

    I feel so bad for everyone in Alabama - especially the HS that was hit. :( That was one of my worst fears as a teacher. I always hated "taking cover" in the hallways. It never felt safe.

    Things were rather somber at school today because the kids were talking about the tornado in Alabama. We were supposed to have a tornado drill last week, but didn't. Our kids still remember the one that tore up our town and high school. We were so fortunate, though, because we only lost one town member. I can't imagine having one hit while we are at school. (The tornado hit us about 6:30 at night.)

    we had a rough night last night. the county i teach in suffered the most damage in the area i live in. we did have school today. I only had 14 out of 20 show up.

    I am worried about one that did not come today. she lived in the area where the actual tornado touched down. I do know that she must be okay due to the fact that there were no deaths in our county.

    I have students that haven't had power at home all week!! They are running on generators if they can get a hold of one. We had ice storms last weekend that brought down power lines all over the place. There were over 100,000 people without power! Now we have snow and wind! There are districts that haven't had school all week...my district has gone 2.5 days out of 5 this week.
