Atleast Tues. & Wed. May be longer if the electricity goes out or there is significant flooding.

Most of winn parish is not in a flood plain. I guess it's better to overreact than get caught flat footed, but I don't expect too much out of this storm once it gets this far inland. We'll get a lot of rain and the power may be off for a few days, but that's about all.

to whoever judged my reply "nuts," watch and see. Rita was stronger and came right over us, and nothing much happened except the power was off. Gustavo is not as strong as Rita and will be over land for a longer time before it gets here. Do you actually think you'll be sitting on your roof in Winnfield surrounded by water, waitng for a helicopter?

I was referring to the flooding of the small creeks in some of the low lying areas. I know around my house there are 3 places where it goes over during heavy rain fall. The buses wouldn't be able to make their routes if this happened. No, I don't think we will be sitting on our roofs waiting for a helicopter to come rescue us, but we could very well be trapped because of rising water.

May I ask, was anyone called about this from their principals??... or how did you find out this information because I had no idea?.. the only way I knew that school was not opem tomorow was from some radio station. We could not get KVCL so it was from another station. Also, on the WPSB home page there was no notice...I am kinda confused as to how I missed it except here and not everone looks here...I mean, it is no big deal, but I would like the information given better than to find out on topix!

It is on the WPSB web page. Look under school closures. It's below the chart that tells which schools are closed.

Well, I do see it! sorry for being so sassy IF I seemed like that...I looked there earlier, but just saw the headline and didn't go further...I bet a lot of people won't see it either...wonder how many will show up? Glad I am doing all that washing right now from my electricity going out. My house is a mess outside and inside. The electicity was just turned on and the house smells. We had a generator and power cords are everywhere. We had to move our bedroom furniture aound so that we could get air in the window. Even though we had a generator that had to go for the freezer, refrigerator, etc..one fan...I feel so overwhelmed but so thankful that the elec is on. Man, I was walking around just a working before coming here on Topix and feeling really thankful that WPSB would give us a WHOLE day to clean all this mess up. Oh well, I guess I just feel so overwhelmed with it all before I can get it back to where it all was before. See ya'll in the morning!!!

Why are our kids having to go to school for 1 day? Couldn't they just start over on Monday? Does Bartlett really believe they will do anything?
