Flood Day...

Well, we have been hit like crazy with storms last week and this week.  Yesterday and today we had such heavy storms and most schools in the area were closed today, because so many roads were impassible.  The town I live in was declared a state of emergency as were a few others around here.  

Three of the major expressways were even closed in parts.  This morning was absolutely insanity in the Chicagoland area.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we try to recover from this.  My school is right by a major river and I worry about my students and their families.  There is major flooding going on right now.  Hope you are having better weather in your neck of the woods!

I'm trying to take the chance to get some schoolwork done.  I'm working on a big Spring math fact unit with tons of practice and games!  Get excited! :)


  1. Hope everything is getting better. I live in a southern suburb of Chicago and I can't believe this rain either. It was crazy trying to get to and from work today. At least the rain has stopped...finally.

    1. I can't imagine. My husband's school wasn't canceled. It took him almost two hours just because so many roads were closed. My school was still closed Friday. Since it's right a river, it's still a mess! I hope the sun is out by you today- it is here! :)
