1 School closed for another day!

Our area is still in a state of emergency. Some parts have driving bans imposed due to last Thursday's record snow. I'm partly pissed off with the fact that what where the weather guys doing? It seems like no one predicted a record blizzard coming our way. This is the most powerful country in the world, but hey, how can we gage it? Last week, some Yankees pitcher accidently crashed his plane into a NYC multi-storey building and killed himself. No one saw that coming. What if he wasn't a Yankees guy. What if he was another fundamentalist martyr? My best friend was 2 blocks away from the crash site. What if that was a huge aircraft? How can we gage Anti-Terror? Because a 100 Taliban people were imprisoned in some remote facility? Or something else...?

No one saw a blizzard coming on Thursday in Buffalo,NY.

These events aren't large scale. Maybe they haven't caught the attention of a lot of people around. But here, the damage done by snow is huge. I went for a small bike ride in the area today and I could see the extent of damage due to broken trees, flooding etc. People's lives have been shut down literally. The town of Amherst is struggling to get power back to thousands of people.

Respecting the driving ban, the University will remain closed for another day.

    Those questions you asked are included in the real social life. That's life we are facing and enduring. We can not flee from that. So just enjoy your daily life and do you best as you can.

    Just do it!
