This afternoon we’re gonna experience a partial eclipse apparently. This LINK I spotted on Boing Boing is an interesting site that explains it all very well. Our area will experience about a 70% eclipse I figure, after scrolling down the page to find Canada.

Realized afterwards I could have videoed the last few minutes dagnabit, ah well.

Yes, We Have No Bananas

This past weekend the stores in towns east of Topley began to experience empty shelves. The cause was a washout near there that stopped the food trucks from getting through. How we depend on those trucks eh, an eye opener for sure. And how quick things would go awry if something happened.
