We had an unexpected early release today. About 11:30, the power went out in bits of the school. It was really weird because for example, the lights in the music library cut out but the power in the plugs were still going strong. Same thing in the band hall – one switch of lights were going but the other weren’t. The office made an announcement about intermittent power outtage through the school and they were working on it. About 30 minutes later, all the power went out. We had some band moms working in the uniform room (the new uniforms are in – more on that in another blog) and I told them if the power isn’t back on by 12:30, they were going to call school for the day. 12:40 and an announcement comes on saying they were arranging for transportation and they would let us know when to release school for the day! They finally released everyone at 1:30 only for all the lights to come back on again…go figure! At least my band got to rehearse and sightread some new music. They need every sightreading rehearsal they can get and they enjoy it (YAY!). So, I’m home now, getting ready for the girls to come over for Grey’s Anatomy (we’ll miss you, Mon!). What an interesting day!
