The Elements Are Conspiring Against Us
Tuesday, June 01, 2010
This has been the rainiest month of May I’ve ever seen. It has rained every single day, at least briefly. Some days, it has rained all day long. There have been strong winds, drizzle, fog, flood watches, torrential rain, thunderstorms.
And all of this has slowed down the progress of our mural.
To top it off, today the lights weren’t working in the music building, so we couldn’t even work in the storeroom. I had planned to take classes up there to sort the squares and put them in numeric order, which makes it much easier when we’re tiling the wall. No, we couldn’t even do that.
So we spent the morning in my classroom, students finishing various projects, and our AC isn't working - not that it's hot, it's just very stuffy.
It’s as if the elements are in a conspiracy to prevent the completion of this mural.
This also means it isn't a day to walk, I won't get in my exercise by tiling, and I'll have to go to a big store and walk for an hour. In the AC.
