Yesterday it rained. It rained a lot. So much so that the "DSR Ministry has been instructed by the Saudi, Wednesday, 19/01/2011 due to bad weather conditions and the associated heavy traffic delays to remain closed tomorrow."
This was written in an email that was sent yesterday by the school to all parents. This directive applies to all schools. Shall remain closed today by the German and the French and British schools. As the two schools their students informed is beyond me. I hope, however, that any mail has been sent out only at 23.45, as was the case with us. About this time it is also very likely that the parents still mails. If yes, not every such a night owl like me.
From the American school, I know that will be notified in such a case, all parents with a text message! I call that an information policy which should be crowned in all probability of more success.
From my school career I had already known of snow, Clinton and earthquake-free. Now, this includes rain-free. What is missing is sand storm free!
So we now have a long weekend, beginning bright on a beautiful Wednesday. As far as I can tell it has not rained throughout the night, so the road conditions are not good, but not nearly as dramatic as in May last year. should be.

Last year's Chikatze-elves went with us so not very successful, is to say, our gift never arrived. Accordingly, this year we were at first reluctant to regard the application. Moreover, the fact that we live abroad originally not very positive effect on registration. Spontaneously we decided yet to join. And this time, despite the time constraints, everything went smoothly. In the last week before departure, we found in the Souq an original Arabic coffee pot, which made such a passionate coffee drinker as Mrs K. had so firmly stood her gift.
In the Atacama Desert, then we received another mail from the troubled Chikatze. Our elves partner wanted to know if mail to us while we were away in Karlsruhe would arrive without problems. As all this was resolved, the Post came on time and without problems. And so we could unwrap Christmas the following:
A little-prince-ever-perpetual calendar.
A beautiful gift that we have accompanied the years and always remember our wedding: Andi's father read in the church of the little prince.
Andi for another great memory, as he performed years ago in high school the young prince as a play.
Full results for the Chikatze So, even though they apparently did little hard for us to find something. tricked out Liebenswert they gave us too.
Also present was a card with a Christmas tree for tinkering. Unfortunately, he probably stayed in the rush of optimism in Karlsruhe. I would like to spread some Christmas flair. Until the advent of this year he is still herfinden way.
I am pleased therefore that this year went well and has worked with us, at least in the Gnome-all gifts
