My first year as a Superintendent has been filled full of learning opportunities and growth. The weather patterns this year have been a measurable portion of my growth. On snowy mornings I typically wake up at 4:30 am to check on road conditions. I take out my Honda Accord and navigate a route that takes me as far north as Madison Lake and as far south as Waldorf and Pemberton. That route is a good tool for decision making for our District. On my drive I typically contact the Superintendents from surrounding districts to get their insight. I would have never imagined that those drives would be as numerous as they have been. Although I enjoy the quiet time listening to talk radio, I would much prefer green grass and blue skies. It is 10:53 pm on Monday the 22nd of April and it appears the Accord will be making another trip throughout our District in the early hours of the morning. The picture below depicts my feelings regarding our current weather and I am sure many of you feel the same way.
