Well, unless you've been living in the proverbial cave you know that the story of this past week was Superstorm Sandy. It was all over the place, and my Tweeting was no exception. So many of my Tweets reflected Sandy and dominate this week's summary.
Sandy also provided a teachable moment as I was slated to discuss floods in my class this week. What timing!
