Followup on the water problem at school. Right after lunch (right after I stood in line to pee in one of the two available stalls) an announcement was made to evacuate the buildings. Evidently, while trying to fix the water pipe, the backhoe hit the gas line. Everybody was evacuated to various buildings around town by grade level. 9th grade homerooms (that's me!) trekked to the Primary School gym, where chaos reigned.
After 30 minutes or so, we were told we could herd the students back to the High School. Was the water fixed? No. Was the gas line fixed? No.
School was dismissed at 12:30 due to "utility problems." Ya think?
