It's raining again. The kind of torrential heavy rain that darkens the sky and makes my 6:45 AM drive to school look like midnight. The kind of heavy torrential rain that creates floods and huge puddles and rivers of rainwater running alongside and over the roads.
DH kept saying I was crazy to go to school. But I put on denim shorts, packed my shoes in a bag and put on my plastic beach shoes and plastic rain jacket, and away I went, driving my little Yaris through all the huge puddles and rivers of water.
I received flood advisories and warnings from the government, via email. The alerts said the flood warning would end at 9 AM. It was still pouring at 10:30 AM.
Most of my students made it to school. Some showed up dripping wet, because they only had umbrellas and the wind made them turn inside out. I've been handing out paper towel all morning.
I'm just hoping the rain stops soon, or I may not be able to make it home at the end of the day.
