Is it just me, or does there seem to be an inordinately high number of school closings lately, especially those based on breaks in the local water systems?
Either there's some mad plot by a Batman-type villain, determined to keep students out of school (Could it be the dreaded Drainer? Or how about the Mad Sprinkler? Or dare I even mention the maniacal Captain ColdorHot?) That or there are some fiendish Gremlins wreaking havoc across East Tennessee, determined to get wet after midnight and spawn more of themselves.
- Broken water main washes out Pigeon Forge classes
- Water problem gives Jefferson County students school break
- Water main break closes Pellissippi’s main campus
- Central High back in session tomorrow after dishwasher problem
Well, apparently the gremlins couldn't get enough of Pellissippi water, because they're at it again - this time at another campus:
Classes are canceled Thursday night at Pellissippi State's campus on Magnolia Avenue, due to a water line break.What are they making these water lines out of - posterboard? Saltine crackers? Flan???
Officials say classes are expected to resume Friday morning.
Maintenance crews are working to make repairs.
