What a Way to End It

You knew I just couldn't leave it alone, didn't you?  I just had to get one last bus duty post in.  When I got to school, this is what I saw:
Can't see anything?  Exactly.  I couldn't see down the hill to the road.  It was incredibly foggy yesterday morning.

In the afternoon, after the buses leave, the "car riders" go to the parking lot.  Well, usually, anyway.  Yesterday, as the bus kids were loading the buses, the sky was pretty dark, but it looked like it was clear in the distance, so I thought it was going to blow over.  Little did I know that the "clear sky" was merely a disguise.  The wind blew, then it rained for about half of a minute, then hailed.  Luckily the car riders had just started coming out of the building, so we were able to corral them back into the cafeteria.  A friend of mine said she had snow in her yard when she got home....snow.  I'm sure it wasn't much, but just enough to tell what it was.  Of course I had my camera and took a couple of pictures of the hail on the ground:


But, look what I put up before I left for spring break:


I'm not real big on bulletin boards:  this one is in my room and only gets changed 3 times/year:  fall, winter, and spring.  When I first started working in the schools, one of my principals was really big into bulletin boards.  We had to change ours out every month.  And, we were responsible for a hall bulletin board, as well.  Of course the Kindergarten creative teachers always had these really cutesie boards.  Me?  Not so much.
But, Spring is about to spring, but I'm sure we'll have at least one more cold snap before we can truly say it's spring.

Two of my aunts sent an e-mail to me with this PSA.  I had no idea this was the law.  You can go to this site to see when this law went into effect in your state.  (This has been confirmed by Snopes.)

  1. Rain and wind is the forecast here for the whole weekend. At least the snow if melting. Our back yard is so soggy-ick. March is never the best month for weather but spring is out there somewhere!

    Have a nice weekend.

  2. So glad to see another non bulletin board person in education! In high school--I can get away with one all year if I'm good. "Starbooks Cafe" has been up for 2 years now. (In a a trailer classroom-- no one cares!) And my daughter the 1st grade teacher has the exact same one--except I made her a little cafe curtain to hang above her's.
    Hope you enjoy spring break! I know I plan to!

  3. I'm not sure how long it's been a law here in Tennessee, but I know it's enforced. And I'm so glad.
