  • August 29, 2015 - Some crazy weather today. We had a rain warning, but nowhere did it say it was going to be an afternoon of wild winds that would knock power out to over 330,000 people, including BC Hydro and the 911 dispatch.

If you prick me….. (237/365)

August 25, 2015 – Somedays I think I’m like a safety pin. The sharp pointy bits that can wound are usually safely put away, but every so often something makes me pop open and want to draw blood. If you […]
