This morning was a good example of adjusting to new places. Never in my life have I woken up, gotten dressed, sat down to breakfast and then told not to go to work because it was raining. Truthfully it was Hong Kong’s highest rain warning at “Black Rain”, but I never even thought to check the weather because of a thunder and lightening storm. Thankfully both Ian and my office let me know to stay put.  The lack of anticipation was the strangest element. For years, I would wake up on a snowy morning to check the news hoping that the snow predictions would cancel school. Last night,  there was no discussion that perhaps we would wake up to a great storm. This was not a frightening storm, but just unannounced. Happy to say that the warning has since been downgraded and off to work I go!
