At the height of last week’s powerful storm, emergency workers of all stripes were up against the elements big-time.

Just about every nook and cranny of San Mateo County felt the impact of the chaotic weather in one way or another. It’s been an historically rough ride for the last three months.

And here I was, planning to drive down San Mateo Road for a long-overdue road trip to Honolulu, when I got a notice that 92 was closed West of Half Moon Bay. Darn.

Thanks for another ride on the Horgan Train. Perhaps folks updating airport information on public flight data boards prefer British English to American English. Or perhaps they’re not fans of Noah Webster? One has to wonder why Mr. Webster opted to cancel the extra “l” in “cancelled” or the “u” in “labour” among a few other changes. On the other hand, we should also be thankful (debatable) that some of his other changes weren’t adopted, such as “soop” instead of “soup” and “stile” instead of “style” although “stile” also exists. Ah, the English language – you gotta (I’m sorry, have got to) love it. Looking forward to your next missive…
