Kaitlyn went to the store last week (some time in the middle of the week) and was approached by a woman who asked if she knew how to play the piano. She answered that she did and the woman than pleaded with her to teach her daughter how to play the piano. Kaitlyn, being the nicest person in the world, agreed (however, never having experience teaching). So, Kaitlyn got a hold of her friends who have taught lessons before and asked them how to do it and set it up. Kaitlyn had her first lesson this week and she said it went well. I'll let you hear about it from her more next week.
Let's talk Super Storm! The Super Storm really didn't hit us. Sorry to say, but we were not anywhere near the center of this storm. However, we were in the path of the end of the storm. Starting Thursday or Friday the wind picked up. We had blizzard conditions all Friday at school. It was kind of fun. Friday and Saturday Togiak was under a "Winter" and a "Severe" Storm watch. A Winter Watch because of the blizzard whiteout conditions and a Severe Watch because of a predicted storm surge and flooding for lower Togiak. During the storm we endured 45-65 mph winds with gusts up to 80 mph. Togiak suffered some downed power lines and some homes lost some of their roofing. Also, some sheds and steam houses got flipped over. The storm surge was almost bad enough that the local officials were thinking of evacuating the town near the bay. Luckily, the wind switched directions and no one needed to be evacuated. All in all, it was an eventful weekend.
