Augusta County supervisors approved plans this week to expand Wilson Elementary, where my son attends.
He and all fourth graders have their classes in trailers. My oldest was in a trailer there as a fifth grader.
Headed to soccer Saturday, I asked the youngest about the trailer.
He likes several things about it - the microwave and refrigerator they have in the trailer. When they have special time, the teacher pops popcorn "and it's still hot" instead of having to go to the teacher's lounge. And they get to set the temperature you want.
Maybe instead of spending $15 million, the county should buy more microwaves for trailers.
Somehow, I think his thoughts on the trailer will change when it rains or gets really cold in the winter.
