The winds of change

Change is in the air!  Really!  All day they sky has been a crazy shade of grey while the winds have begun to increase.  This evening a crazy pink and yellow. It seems early in the season but a good size Nor’easter is steaming its way toward our fine state. Heavy rains and wind will lead to flooding and damage and to some even worse, indoor recess for the school kids.

Alright, to be clear, of course indoor recess is not worse than flooding or damage. As a parent I never really gave much thought to recess at all.  It was such a tiny part of the school day.  Now that I am in a school I have a new-found respect for the few minutes a day when the children are allowed to run care free blowing off the steam of the morning’s learning exercises.  Just a few minutes is all that is needed but on a day when the weather does not cooperate, a distinct difference is noticeable.

Looks like the rain and wind will hang on for a few days and we all know what that means….bad hair for everyone!  Hey, it could always be worse, it could be a blizzard :-).
