Earthquakes and Hurricanes!

So teacher work week begins Monday and I'm convinced that some teacher who is not ready to return to work has wished these natural disasters upon us...LOL. I'm located in Central Virginia and we were rocked by an earthquake on Tuesday and Hurricane Irene is scheduled to hit on Saturday. I've got my gas, nonperishable snacks and flashlights...I'm ready! While I wait for all the action to go down I will be busy creating back to school goodies for my new third graders. I will be blogging about them in the next couple of days... granted I still have internet access and electricity. I also can't wait to finish up my classroom so I can take and post pictures of my new space!


  1. Be Safe! Thinking of you here in southern Louisiana.

  2. Ms. Winston, please stay safe! We are further north so I think it will be a tropical storm by then, but I am watching the weather maps right now. I hope the storm loses strength quickly for you and everyone in the area!

    I can't wait to see your pictures! Take care and talk to you soon :)

  3. Wow...I am in Eastern NC and we felt the earthquake, too! It was bad enough here. I can only imagine how strong it felt being closer.

  4. The teachers at my school are praying for all of you on the east coast!
