Test Pattern: Hurricane Fay on the First Day.

One of the things I love most about living in Miami?  Hurricane season.  Seriously, there is nothing more exhilirating than watching a storm bigger than a small nation barrelling down on you.  We adore it.

Even more exciting is the fact that we almost always have a threat corresponding to the first day of school!  Kids and teachers alike get to teeter on the brink of “Will they cancel, and give us a couple more days of summer vacation?”  Very exciting times.

Hurricane parties in our house include massive rituals of candle lighting and whirling dervishery.  And now, for the first time ever, I get to add a blog entry as a good luck charm.  We shall see.

I leave you with the banner that will greet students, parents, and teachers alike as we enter the 50th anniversary of Greynolds Park Elementary.  If it doesn’t get blown away.  I’ll see you on the flip side, as soon as the power gets restored.  Namaste.

  1. I just wanted to tell you both good luck. We’re all counting on you.

    And here’s another beautiful thing water can do: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HeUixe_Lpg

    Know anyone who works in a restaurant where customers draw on the tablecloth? I’d love to convince them to hang up each paper tablecloth and take a photo before throwing it out. What an insight into everyday art that would be!

  2. … That is the coolest rocket ship ever made.
