Yesterday all the news was about the recent US Government Shutdown. I pretty much put my head in the sand and didn't think it would affect me or my family.
Recently, Eli got a book from the library about earth quakes. It has become his latest obsession - how to prepare and survive an earth quake. I'm thrilled by this obsession (it's much better than Pokemon), I love studying weather so this is something we can study together. We watched this video about preparing for an earth quake in Japan. (Eli still loves Japan) I then wanted to show Eli that the earth is constantly shifting, that there are quakes daily. Next step we traveled here: http://earthquake.usgs.gov and saw this:
Oh crap, I guess the shut down has affected us.
Are there government programs that have affected you? Please share in the comments.
