Kind of Expected
Rain was in the forecast for later in the day and for the weekend. It had rained the previous day. And while it hadn't yet rained that Friday, it was cold and dark. It smelled like rain.
Third period. There was a fire drill scheduled. (I hate fire drills.)
The lesson plan had me skipping the checking of the homework to account for the shortening of time they'd be in class.
But I was 90% sure that they'd cancel. Because, really. The kiddos scream when it starts raining and they're indoors.
Third period started. I gave the correct-the-homework instruction. I took roll. I passed out the day's assignment. And the time for the drill rolled around...
The principal came on the PA system. Due to weather, the fire drill would be postponed...
Yeah, I called that one. (The class, however, was disappointed. They wanted to get out of chemistry.)
Third period ended. I looked out the door. It was raining.
Are you a fan of fire drills? How about a good rainy day?
