Residents of Heart’s Delight, a community on the southern shore of Trinity Bay, are calling it nothing short of a miracle that a six-year-old girl is alive today. On Tuesday afternoon, in temperatures below freezing, the girl reportedly left her babysitter’s home unbeknownst to her caregiver, walking half a kilometre along the main road, through backyards, and even across a brook with running water. She was only wearing a light dress, and no footwear. Found at the steps of town hall that afternoon, the girl’s skin was blue and she could barely speak. She was rushed to hospital in Carbonear, where she is expected to make a full recovery. Source: CBC
Via his blog on the CBC, Ryan Snodden is keeping us all intimately in tune with the will-it-or-won’t-it-hit-us tropical storm Maria. “There are still some forecast models that seem determined that Maria will become a Category One Hurricane briefly on Thursday. No doubt this is a possibility. However I have to say, I’m not convinced, especially given the small window this storm will have to intensify.” You may need a beginner’s course in meteorology to follow along, but one can’t help but admire this man’s enthusiasm for the weather.

You’re working in partnership with nature, but nature is sometimes indifferent to the success of the joint venture. In fact, sometimes you’d swear nature was giving you the finger.
