Ah, Spring…that wonderful time of year when the critters are foraging, birds are singing, buds are blooming. Let’s not forget those other birds, the snow birds, who are likely packing and getting ready to make their seasonal exodus around Easter. Droves of RV’s and Cadillacs will mob 75 and 41 making your trip to school bitter sweet, bitter for having to leave early and sweet for lowering the accident ratio once gone. Pheeew! The lines at Dunkin Donuts will be shorter too, yay!
By the way, there is a brand new Dunkin Donuts Express inside the gas station next to the McDonalds in North Port, coffee fanatics! You can make your own just the way you like it! Can you tell I’m excited?
There’s something more we must look forward to though and that’s nasty weather. In case you haven’t heard, the weather prediction “pros” are saying Florida is likely to get slammed with Hurricanes this year. Don’t they say that every year? I’m starting to think Home Depot and Lowes are in cahoots with the weather stations. Anyway, what can you do? Just be aware of the possibilities and take basic precautions. If you’re out and the weather appears to be deteriorating quickly, don’t speed up so you can get home quicker. That’s how accidents happen, people. Slow down, be careful and put the radio on a channel with warnings instead of blasting your tunes. You may need to get out of the way of emergency vehicles anyway.
You’re in school for a reason and that’s to make your future better right? What a waste if you’re not thinking of the little things though that could really snow-ball as it were…like getting into an accident or ignoring emergency information that you might otherwise have gotten. So, save yourself some trouble and go into the students tab under the Self Service Banner. Get into your personal information file and make sure your contact info is updated so the school can contact you in an emergency or cancelation situation. They even have it so you can add a text number under the Phones drop box. They sent this info in your email but I thought I’d tag team that information here so you can’t miss it. Well, stay safe this hurricane season and have a good one today!
