The Hippo-Rain-Dance Worked, BUT....

The haze was not washed nor blown away even though it poured cats and dogs and the wind howled like a mighty banshee. It poured yesterday afternoon too but it did not make a difference either.

Joel has succumbed to the haze and is down with a severe rhinitis and is currently sick at home. His stomach caught a bug too. Many of his teachers and classmates have been having the sorethroat+flu+cough+fever sickness the moment the haze arrived.

Well, it will be porridge and barley water for tomorrow. But I have great news and I will post it tomorrow. Right now I'm feeling like one of the characters from 'The Walking Dead' of HBO. Joel woke us at 5am as he was feeling sick. I'm off to bed now. Goodnight!

  1. Do you know where the phrase "raining like cats and dogs" came from? In the Middle Ages, before sewers the streets were used as sewers. When it rained really, really hard all the dead bodies of cats and dogs that were in the streets or under buildings would wash out to the streets and get swept up in the flood water. Only a really hard rain would cause that to happen.

    I love weird history.
