The Department of Public Works has a fleet maintenance facility on Grand Caillou Road where five full-time mechanics take care of many of the larger, rolling pieces of equipment, such as tractors, dump trucks, Gradalls and excavators. It also has a satellite facility on Plant Road where two mechanics service small vehicles.
"We’re moving the drainage department, administration and fleet maintenance to Gray. The road and bridges department and the vegetation department are going to stay here at the Grand Caillou facility," he said.
Rain, sleet, sun, and snow: Caillou is amazed by all the ways that weather changes. He’s nearly in a state during a thunderstorm until Dad explains what thunder is (and how to tell it’s going away). Caillou also makes the best of a rainy day by splashing in puddles. And when a winter storm hits, Mom and Dad make a scary blackout into a fun indoor camping trip, complete with sleeping bags and marshmallows! Mom is making one of her special snowman cakes, which means Caillou and Rosie have to go to the shop with her to get the ingredients. Then Caillou gets lost in the shop…but it all works out fine in the end. On another day, when Caillou’s kite-flying plans are defeated by rain, he creates a pirate ship in his living room.
It sounds like it was a real eye-opener for a lot of kids, too. Babies are hard. The young parents in the video talked about losing friends, the sudden excess of worry and responsibility, and losing one’s social activities to endless nights watching Dora. (I’d have said Caillou, if I really wanted to scare them.)
