Fog has overtaken our city once again.  This is what we saw on our drive to school this morning (see the Lions Gate Bridge peaking out).  Sam wondered aloud if this was Heaven?  Clara explained patiently that we had to die first, but first we will be grandmas.  

And then she thought some more and said she wouldn't be driving to school if this was Heaven, because naturally there is no school in Heaven, and more importantly her brother would definitely not be staying home while she has to go to school (which is the case today since Sam is sick with the cough).  She finds this very unjust, but was reassured when I told her we wouldn't have any fun until she gets home at 3:00pm.  In fact, I told her, I would even put Sam in the dark basement until then.  She liked that.
