For those of you not in Baltimore, please know that it is absolutely beautiful here right now, and has been since Wednesday. It's even a little hot (temperatures today reached 88 degrees, but it's without all the humidity of the summer). Before last Wednesday, it rained for a couple days in a row. Yesterday, when we scrimmaged on our baseball field, I noticed a big puddle still in the middle of it. I was pretty surprised by it, and put an email in to my Athletic Director about it that evening.
No one can come fix it, so our game was canceled. Ughhhhh. We've had three games scheduled so far, and two have been postponed. But it's freaking beautiful outside today; it was a complete shocker that they couldn't get the field ready. If the city cannot get a field ready in a whole week without rain, how can we play at all? I mean, it's spring - it's going to rain at least once a week. Soooo frustrating, and it makes me so extra frustrated to see the kids come into my classroom to ask about the game and to have to tell them it was canceled because of beurocracy and inaction.
Also, today, this morning, on the last day of the quarter, we received an email saying the quarter had actually been extended another week. Yup, told the last day of the quarter. The last day. As if teachers don't plan for these things. Ugh. It was a frustrating day to teach in Baltimore City today.
