No one is claiming respsonsibility yet for what is going on in Ottawa and Quebec, but the Parliament buildings, schools and the US Embassy are on lockdown, and security measures are in place in legislative buildings across the country as well as the Canadian Embassy in Washington D.C.
On a more personal front, we had a horrific storm overnight with power going out for 8 hours here. This never happens because the power in our complex is all underground but several transformers blew. Violet was shaking so bad due to the UPS's beeping and the sounds of the transformers that I was really concerned about her. I had her thunder shirt on but it didn't seem to help. She is sleeping peacefully at my feet now poor thing.
I was supposed to pick up one of the kids as she is sick and home, while the Mom and boy went to a Wednesday program near us. Now the boy is sick too and Mom is keeping them both home. So, my usual Wednesday time with them is cancelled
. I have to be careful because my immune system is low and I can't afford to catch a virus.
So I guess I will be curled up watching the news unfold.
