So, I'm almost at 100 Followers, so I am super pumped to post about my Giveaway. But . . . I just have to tell you my story first. Ok, so a lot of you read about my hairdryer blowing up ( complete with loud bang & smoke) last week before Open House. Well, the hairdryer has been replaced by a shiny new hot pink model, and all is right with the world. Or so I thought . . .
Yesterday afternoon (2nd day of school, no less) during dismissal, a coworker friend and I were standing outside my door on duty for daycare van riders ( they pick up right outside my classroom . . . which is on the very end of my school). One of the drivers had just come through & told us just how bad the weather was a few miles down the road. She talked about trees down, lighting, and really bad rain. Meanwhile, it's blue skies all the way for us. As soon as she pulled away, the LOUDEST crackling of thunder sounded and scared the bejeebus out of the two of us . . . and not to mention the kiddies. While reeling from that, all of a sudden, we smell something. Something awful. We both turn to look in the direction of my classroom only to notice SMOKE coming out of MY room into the hallway!!! What???!?!?! I run in there & it's just filled with smoke. We check everything plugged in & it all works, including the A/C (Thank you, Lord!! It's hot in Georgia!).
Long story short ~ no one knows what happened, but after Maintenance & all the "powers that be" visited my room, the only conclusion is that lightning possibly/probably struck the roof right above my classroom & singed/heated/burned the insulation or something, creating the smoke that filled up the whole room! Our roof is metal and we have mostly open beams, so there's just no telling. But, I do know that maybe I should stay away from electrical appliances . . .bad weather . . . lightning . . . and anything else that might kill me! Eeeek!!!
