Basking in the Heat

We have, since the first of the year, broken a record held since 1885 for the number of days where the temperature never got above freezing. (Nine, in case you're wondering.)

Not a big deal if you live in, say, Montana, but when you're in the Beloved South it's news.

So the fact that it's now in the 50's (which is above normal), is a relief to most of us who were sick and tired of cold, icy classrooms. This is more like it.

And the ingredients were all there - a Friday, temps finally in the mid-50's, and only two weeks left of the month.

Yup, it was a perfect day for the mandatory monthly fire drill!

Could you link the Study Guide page? I looked on History Teacher's page, but there's no search function... :D

We had our firedrill, too. I guess they figured they'd better get it in before something else hit! The weather was so nice, we went out to recess after the drill.

I can't believe you have to have a fire drill once a month! That could be seriously miserable in the winter!

We had a "fire drill" several days ago when the outside temp was about 30 degrees and there was snow on the ground! Came to find out that it wasn't a drill at all, but a short in the fire alarm system. Fortunately, we didn't have to stand outside too long!

I hate those damn fire drills because they *always* seem to happen during my lunch and *never* during my lessons with The Class From Hell.
