Really, who needs light??

ok, no really, we do!

Today, while trying to teach my precious {never would we get wild and crazy} lovely third graders, the building when totally black!

I mean, cinder block walls, no windows, can't see your hand in front of your face, black!
not once, not twice,
Yes, THREE times!

You read that right! Our school building went totally black with close to 1,000 {lovely, well behaved, never would we get wild and crazy because the lights keep going out}students.

And here is why, the quote from Centerpoint Energy's website:

CenterPoint Energy is complying with Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) instructions for rotating outages. As a result electric customers may experience electric outages up to approximately 45 minutes. There is no need to contact CenterPoint Energy. CenterPoint Energy asks customers to take energy conservation measures...

HA! don't you love it!
I mean it isn't like 20 degrees outside or anything
we don't need lights, or heat, for that matter
oh yeah, right, IT IS!!

It was definitely an interesting day for this little teacher!

  1. Same here - there were rolling black-outs all over the state. The town where my friend Emily lives was without electricity all day - so the schools have already announced that they will be closed. I'm just hoping for some snow!
