    Michelle, you must be blonde? Usually when people evacuate they don't necessarily go home. Sometimes they leave home- and if they happen to live close to work/school then they are given direction by the authorities depending on the situation. Wow, what a question. Now I have to change my name. I am mortified that someone might think we could be the same person.

    If we could just ignore these incidents most of the perpetrators would stop bluffing and school would simply proceed in a normal fashion. Unfortunately they know that we can’t afford to do that.
