... on account o' because we got nuthin'. Or next to nuthin'. (As noted, stolen from Morgan's house.) First: extreme beauty. Watch this in full screen HD, if'n ya can:
This vid is simply one "wow" moment after another. Apropos of nothing... Vancouver really IS that beautiful. I spent a week in the Vancouver/Victoria area once upon a time in the way-back and was MOST impressed.
Second: There's some great snark here, here being "Unhappy Hipsters." I mean GREAT snark. Especially if you've known yuppies like those depicted at this blog, or happen to know someone who keeps "Architectural Digest" on their coffee table. Send them this link and drive 'em nuts.
Snow Siege, Day Four. My last nerve is frayed. I've been without water for four days now and I'm beginning to lose hope my water lines will thaw today. I don't have the first clue as to why I'm freezing up so much this winter but I DO know that the situation is pissing me off greatly. I have a feeling the park lost its water Thursday and that sort of situation is beyond my control, coz when there's no water pressure to maintain flow then my lines freeze. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Update, 1820 hrs: Our water unexpectedly returned about 20 minutes ago. We struck while the iron was hot (and wet!), washed a sink FULL of dirty dishes, refilled three empty gallon jugs (the emergency water supply, which was down to the last gallon), and are now waiting for the hot water heater to recover so we can shower. We are, to put it mildly, the happiest of Happy Campers.
