School Canceled

Today was supposed to be my first day teaching at the 1 day/week program. I spent the day yesterday getting all those last minute things together.
My kids were so excited, they didn't even mind going to bed early. Well, at about 9:45 last night, the decision was made to cancel school for today.
So, it is 7 a.m. and my kids are not awake yet. They are going to be so bummed. I actually am pretty bummed myself. I had gotten excited and pumped up. I guess I have one more week to prepare. We have Fay to blame.
Even though it has been just lots of rain where I am, one of the staff members for the school lives in an area where there was flooding. She said that her car is completely under water and her street is flooded waist high.
The worst we have had is being without power for a couple hours last night. Although, we weren't even here to deal with it. We were at a friend's house that didn't lose power at all.

Hopefully, this storm will be gone by today and dissipate over the land and water by tomorrow.

The schools in our area are closed today as well. We're in the northern Florida area. Our homeschool is open today, however!

Amazing how beautiful a hurricane / tropical storm can look from space!! I love these pictures.

Where in Florida, are you? We are in Gilchrist County, and we have had rain everyday for 10 days. No flooding near us, some power outages. They did close the public schools on Friday, here too. I am definately glad to see Fay moving away.

I am in Orange County.
I didn't have any damage, but we definitely had a little flooding.
