Neige in Lege day 2

The sun came up blood red this morning. Against my better judgement, I pulled over and attempted to get a shot of it.
Another day of no school buses and therefore just a fraction of my students.

Todays emergency lesson: take the following four words:
Using only those words compose an English version of the following French passage:
"Ce qui existe, existe. Ce qui n'existe pas, n'existe pas. Est-ce que c'est ca? C'est ca."

alternative lesson using same material:
punctuate the following passage so that it makes sense. The words are already in their proper order. (clue: there are four sentences total including one question)

that that is is that that is not is not is that it it is

acknowledgment: this idea comes from the film "Charlie" starring Cliff Robertson

Patrique, the custdodian who was sweeping snow with a broom yesterday, today had to close the entrance to the school media center. I saw him kicking at the ice on the sidewalk with his boots today...

He suggested that I take a look at the beach so ...

on the way home I visited the bassin at Andernos. The mercury continues to hover at or near freezing...

the snow is barely melting.

Nobody can remember anything like it, ever.

In visiting with Cecile yesterday, I mentioned the snow in Lege. She said her children were really upset -- missing the only snow anyone from Lege ever remembers. What exacerbates the disappointment is the almost complete lack of snow this year (we had a little before Xmas)in our fair city. January has been almost a complete bust, snow-wise (or any other precip). Skiing/boarding has been uninspired for the past 3 weeks.

Sports page feature article: Stu Inman dies. One of the last Portland connections to the glory days -- the assembler of the 77 team and the finals teams of Porter/Drexler.
