Yesterday, the heat was off in my room (and several other rooms) at Tiny Town High. There was some kind of problem. Experts were called.
I borrowed a clock with an indoor thermometer from my young colleague. The temperature in my room??? (Drum roll please.)
Another colleague covered for me during 2nd hour, so I could run home and change into something warmer. My students wore coats--and sometimes gloves.
Thankfully, shortly after lunch, the heat came back on and temperatures gradually began climbing back to 68 or so.
On this Thursday, I am thankful for the people that keep our heat running.
Very thankful. (And I'd be quite happy not to do that again this winter.)
