I did keep one snow shovel. Not sure why, nostalgic?
Corner unit with balcony, right? Depending on Mother Nature's mood when it comes to which direction the snow will be blowing, you might thank the stars you kept a shovel.
I have a broom.
But hey, we'll be gone for half the winter. Let it snow, let snow, let it snow.

The sky was interesting last night, for sure. But, I could still breathe, so there's that :130:

There's the Cascade fire and now the PIB fire :(
I hope they get them under control. I wonder what the chances of rain are? Not good for the near future, apparently.
But this link https://www.weather-atlas.com/en/canada ... -september says we average 11.9 days of rain in September, so just over 25%?

The prognosticators predicting rain for Vernon all summer long have been wrong, wrong, wrong, every single time. Predicted rain several times over in last 9 weeks and all we ever got was wind, more heat and a Sky-genie sitting on his thunder pot.

Rod Stewart has had something like 9 million wives so chances are very high she would be one of his.

Last weekend on the way home from Osoyoos we stopped in Keremeos for fresh fruits and veggies.
Picked up a large Hubbard squash, our favourite for $0.79/ pound.

Today at the Farmers market in Kamloops a mayoralty candidate who has a local farm was selling them for.......

$2.49/ pound. :200:

And he wants to run Kamloops?

Keremeos has the best fruit stands in the province. Love that place!

You’d think it was the longest winter ever we have lived in when shopping for veggies. Gag at $2.00/# for zuchinni. Wth?? In late summer?

Those things are good but mostly water.

We are being skinned. Alive.
