---Six O'Clock and Another Day Begins

FTLComm - Tisdale - October 7, 1999

Though a shower had dampened the street last night and it was now frozen at 0600 the temperature was near 0C and that sky looked promising. An elevator worker is on his way to work and the morning news is tell me the woes of the world.

The US President wants Canada to enact an endangered species law to protect animals the US has practically brought to extinction, the former Chilian dictator is going to Spain for trial, Russia seems to be at war, a former president of the Saskatchewan Collage of Physicians and Surgeons was kicked out of his work for sex offences but the Collage hushed it up, a grade six class in Buffalo Narrows have gone through three teachers in just over a month, a railway engineer in London ran a red light causing England's worst railway accident in many years and in Mexico a mud slide causes a bunch of children to just vanish. When you consider all that those thin clouds don't look so bad. In fact we have a lot to be thankful for.

The picture above right was taken right at 0800 and shows a layer of cumulus clouds, though fairly thin that has swept into the area since 0600. That flat bottom of the clouds is the line between freezing and not freezing temperatures.
