Lightning striking near downtown Ft Lauderdale last night: Students were scared that perhaps God was trying to target them :)
Actually, I have had pretty full classes today and yesterday -- despite the "inclement" weather. I've really only been missing a few students out of each class, which is pretty much par for any given day of the week, day or night class. However, this rain the past two days has created quite a tizzy, which is weird, since South Florida is a sub-tropical climate and we get rain on a daily basis for 6 months of the year.
But because it's February and not June, suddenly, no one knows how to drive or venture out into the downpour. One student, who just stopped in my office, said: "I braved the elements to be here"!
I bet everyone who is getting pounded by snow, sleet, and cold temps appreciates that! Maybe later, I too will "brave the elements" and get my run in for the day. Might be hard. It's tempting to just go home, put on a kettle of tea, and watch movies all afternoon -- it is pouring out there.
