MOUNT MORRIS – Oregon administrator Kip Crandall was ready Thursday to make good on his deal with junior high students to spend a night on the roof of the David L. Rahn Junior High as part of a fundraising incentive.

That’s before Mother Nature put her foot down.

The Rahn principal’s plan was cut short about 11 p.m. when the mercury dipped into the 30s and strong winds made sleeping in a tent on the roof unadvisable. He went home to get a safe night’s sleep.

Crandall plans to fulfill his end of the bargain in the near future, when weather conditions are more favorable.

The eighth-graders’ trip to Six Flags went off as planned Friday morning.
