I inquired yesterday if classes pushed through today and the staff said yes. This prompted me to ask as one of my colleagues shared that he was not coming today as his students cancelled the classes. I asked the staff how my students were and could they come and again, I got a yes.
I had the same situation getting to work today but flood is rising compared yesterday. As my Sunday morning "ritual", I had breakfast at Tesco and went to the language center. After a few minutes, a Chinese teacher colleague told me that classes be cancelled today. At first, I thought all but later clarified that it's after 12.
My class went one with two students in attendance. My other student in fact shared that his home has been flooded as well and that his family was with him at Tesco that time. It was also very quiet at Tesco that day, not the usual crowded with shoppers though apparently Tesco has plenty of stocks displayed. Work cannot confirm if there'll be work next weekend, everything will be based on how the water will go. If it rises, for sure classes be cancelled, if not then we can go on. I believe the same situation happens to some establishments and schools. No work is no income for many or less salary for some due to temporary closures of businesses.
