First Storm of Summer Delays Class

by Betty Winn on 06/30/15

Just as class started last evening, the hail storm began. We were all trapped in the classroom. The hail hitting the windows and the thunder and lighting were so loud, not even I could speak loud enough to teach.So, I gave the students quizzes to do in groups to keep them occupied until the first monsoon storm of the year stopped. Unfortunately, before the storm ceased, the water breached through the bottom of the door, windows and walls and began to move through the classroom. The students alerted me then kept working (they are all real troopers) until the storm finally stopped about 50 minutes after it started. I excused the class (we will be making up the time) as the Stepping Stones Agencies staff went into action. Brandon brought the largest wet vac I've ever seen and got as much water up as he could. Alva, also of Stepping Stones, removed all the hail that was up against the outside walls and the sidewalk. My husband, David Winn, arrived with two large fans to finish the drying job. I am so thankful to have our school in the Stepping Stones Center. See the pictures in the Photo Gallery
