Boy, did we have wind the past couple of days. It was very challenging to try to sleep at night.
You can at times actually hear it blow towards you. Then it stops. Just like that. Silence. Then you hear it from a distance - coming closer and closer. When it hits you there is very little you can do. Lie low. If your stuff is not properly secured, it will be blown away.
We have not as yet received any information on this year’s winter readiness programme. If winter arrives early this year, I wonder if they will take in people earlier.
The City, with various shelters and other NGOs, did a tremendous job last year. A few years ago it was easy to establish who the real homeless people were. Today the lines are blurred. There are those who have been released from correctional services, unable to go home to their families and they end up on the streets in the city.
