or at least the ceiling is….
While we were in Guatemala last week there was a crazy storm in San Pedro Sula and apparently part of the ceiling in the new middle school couldn’t quite handle it. All of the water from this section of the roof is funneled down one very small gutter pipe (see it in the below pic…). The assumption here is that the water just couldn’t drain fast enough and the weight created this crack in the ceiling.
Luckily, our trusty seventh grade SS/LA teacher who utilizes the nearest classroom was very vigilant and put up some tape so the students wouldn’t go under the perilous ceiling. The tape has been up for the last week while the administration and maintenance staff tried to figure out the next step in repairing a building that was only finished 9 months ago.
Meanwhile, we are in the midst of a tropical depression here in Honduras right now. That means lots and lots and lots of rain! It started last night and didn’t take a break until this evening….and if you remember our post from last spring, when it rains in Honduras, it pooouuuurs! All this additional rain really did a number on the already precarious ceiling and here’s what we ended up with at the end of the school day today:
