  • Good luck to students and faculty

    So where in the world did our summer go?
    Recently I was talking to a friend from high school who now works in the Harrison County School System.
    Aside from the general conversation about what we had been doing lately, the subject of how summer had flown by became the main focus of our conversation.
    Despite getting out of school for the summer in record timing, it seems that students nonetheless were just getting used to not waking up early to catch a ride on the bus to school.

  • Whirlwind was weird

    I saw the strangest thing the other day:  A bona fide whirlwind?  
    I was taking water to the ewes and lambs mid-day and I looked up to see this swarm of plant material -and whatever else was in it- swirl around a viburnum.  
    It was hot out and only the slightest breeze was apparent.  
    Since I was by myself I had to comment to the sheep and the dogs, “Oh my gosh, look at that, that is so weird!”
