Raindrops keep falling on my head.

More signs of a well funded educational system.  It poured today.  For about 20 minutes, and it didn’t stay outside.  A couple of classrooms (not mine), the faculty room and one of the girl’s bathrooms became showers.  Of course I took some pictures, and here are a few of the better ones.  You may need to click on them to enlarge them in order to see the rain coming through the roof.

The first two are inside one of the classrooms, dripping straight down the whiteboard.  Good thing school hadn’t actually started, it would be hard to teach with a wet dry-erase marker board.

The rest of these are in the faculty room. Right below you can see it dripping right by the light fixtures.

The picture below here shows a pool of water that is caught in the light fixture itself.  This also happened in the girl’s bathroom, but there it actually shorted out the light.  

 

Here you can see the water pooling up deep enough to be on top of the carpet.

I liked how the camera caught the drops in mid air.

And more dripping from the ceiling in the faculty room.

 

Ironically, since there are very few windows in the building, I didn’t even know it was raining until I went into the faculty room and saw it coming through the roof.

I'm going to tell our custodians. They'll be so happy it's not our building. :)
We only had a couple of buckets in the main hall yesterday. Things are definitely looking up.
And the leaky window in my relo got replaced over the summer, so I didn't even have a soggy wall there.

Once again may I add that you people just plain need a new building.

Yeah, but we know when that'll happen. You've had the plans and promise for a new building since before I started working there. And we're behind you.
In other words, we'll get a new building on the 11th of Never.

Agreed.
