The Office of Risk Management called up (yep we have one) and told me about the possibility of a storm hitting on Saturday right when we have our Freshman Retreat with 237 students registered . They heard it from DC Alert the same folks who sent me a text message this summer warning me that the heat index would be 1000 degrees.
After a few more calls including one to the Charles County Office of Emergency Management... we sadly and regretfully decided, to reschedule the retreat for next weekend. I was heart broken the kids were heart broken. We've really, they've really worked so hard and so long to put something really special together for their friends.... Now we have to cancel everything trucks, tents, retreat center, food etc. And have everything reordered for next weekend Yikes. We can and we will.
They played this at Adoration inspiring...
