First time a hurricane has propelled a President back into office, I reckon.

Hurricane Sandy relief?

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Is the Canadian or any provincial government helping out at all?

I know we have sent crews to the States to provide assistance before, and I know it’s still early, but surely we should be planning something, right?

Hey! Students who wailed away…

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

…on my bus this morning and on Twitter about schools needing to be closed today!

Listen up.

Legit reasons to close schools:

  • Power outage
  • Water outage
  • Major snowstorm / freezing rain event that puts staff and / or students at risk of physical harm
  • Earthquakes – big ones
  • Invasion by aliens
  • Invasion by the U.S. or other former superpower
  • Locusts – big ones

Not a legit reason:

  • Major storm 500 km away that may cause things to get a bit breezy in Ottawa

Sheesh!

Back in MY day, we walked to school in raging snowstorms with -55F temps! That’s FAHRENHEIT, KIDS! AND WE WORE NEWSPAPER ON OUR FEET CUZ WE COULDN’T AFFORD BOOTS!

Sheesh. Kids these day…

Sandy…

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

… such an innocent sounding name… doesn’t sound at all like a hurricane.

I think of “Sandy” and this is her:

NOT this:

Who thinks up these names, anyhow?

Might be an interesting Tuesday, by the look of it… and dressed up witches might do some real flying on Halloween!
