Deus ex Machina (literally)
Well, it appears that I angered the new gods yesterday.
We’ve had a very dry Spring in Ottawa this year with cloudless skies for days on end. Last night I went to a student’s home to do some private groundschool teaching and, unexpectedly, it started to pour with rain. When I left 90 minutes later it was still pouring and even now, 14 hours later, it’s still raining.
I was wondering what had caused this when I realised my terrible sin: in an attempt to find my student’s house I had asked Google for directions. And then I didn’t follow them. I thought up a better route for myself and thereby displeased Google.
