Hurricane Sandy is looming. Excessive rain, high floods, and massive flooding are very real threats for over 60 million people who live in the Northeast and in the Mid-Atlantic. Therefore, I’ve decided to host our weekly Slice of Life Story Challenge early this week. While I could simply set a SOLSC post to automatically go live on Tuesday, I know that I will most likely lose power as will many other Slicers. Therefore, I wanted everyone to have the chance to participate in our weekly challenge regardless of where they’re located.
If you’re in Sandy’s path, then you likely have many other things to do to prep for the storm today. Therefore, please don’t feel compelled to comment on other people’s slices today. Come back, when time permits (and if your power stays on), to read other people’s slices. However, I’m sure staying connected with other Slicers might be a nice way to get away from the media coverage of Frankenstorm!
If you’re in Hurricane Sandy’s path, please stay safe. I hope to see everyone back here, slicing on our normal Tuesday, on November 6th.
I am a literacy consultant who focuses on writing workshop. I've been working with K-6 teachers and students since 2009. Prior to that, I was a fourth and fifth-grade teacher in New York City and Rhode Island.
I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
I live in Central Pennsylvania with my husband and children. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, doing Pilates, cooking, baking, making ice cream, and reading novels.
