A Skeptic’s Snowday

Filed Under (Estee) by Estee on 02-02-2011

Just as I thought. The news made a big hoopla about a big storm. As I predicted, we never got the snow they predicted. In fact, Adam and I are about to go out for a walk.

Seems the news is full of hype on all counts, whether it be about autism or the weather. Weather is big business. Except for the Tsunami in Indonesisa. We needed the news reports then. But they never came. I hate being skeptical. Yet everytime The Weather Network predicts weather, and this comes from undocumented personal research, it’s always less severe than they say.

In the meantime, I’m happy to report that after writing my post yesterday, after a while on waiting lists (we’ve been a year on some and still no word), Adam will try his first ski program next week.

Just a another day in the life of a positive skeptic.

About Me


I’m a PhD candidate at York University, Critical Disability Studies, with a multi-disciplinary background in the arts as a curator and writer. I am the Founder of The Autism Acceptance Project (www.taaproject.com), and an enamoured mother of my only son who lives with the autism label. I like to write about our journey, critical issues regarding autism in the area of human rights, law, and social justice, as well as reflexive practices in (auto)ethnographic writing about autism.
