News comes along in the most unlikely of ways. Twice recently, I’ve been working on one story only to find an entirely different one in the process.
Today, I was following up on a call to the Episcopal School of Dallas when I hit a roadblock. None of the phone numbers listed the website were working. And believe me, I tried all of them, attracting a few raised eyebrows from my cubicle as the chiming tone of “This is a not a working number” seemingly played on repeat.
E-mail was working, however, and director of communications Julie Clardy revealed ESD’s AT&T phone lines went out earlier in the week due to flooding.
It’s been a week of the unexpected. Bring on the weekend.
