Tim, I tried the curmudgeonly thing...and it only works sometimes.

Got a call a couple of days back from some friends who have a sailboat and want to come for a visit. It's a little harder to discourage people like that, so if you have any ideas....

How about, "We moved".

Or, since they have a sail boat, "We moved.... inland".

*Notice: The "moved inland" line may not work if you live on a small island.

Hello Keith et al., glad to see we all mostly made it through another winter!



The surefire way to send relly's or other stray city folk packing is . . . an OUTHOUSE.

(To really send them scurrying make it a two-holer )

Good idea Jules...but, unfortunately they already know we have composting toilets indoors.

About this winter...the ground here was covered completely in white this afternoon. From HAIL!

What the hail is mother nature doing to you guys out in B.C.?

Sorry to hear your winter just isn't going away. And I hope you didn't have any damage from the hail. We had a hail storm last Memorial Day and it put pea-sized holes in all of my Hosta plant leaves.

I got an email from a pal in Nanaimo about two minutes before the hail arrived here. He said the ground was totally white from the hail there. That's at least 15 miles away in a straight line.

No sooner had I typed a reply telling him he could keep it, than we got thunder and lightning and hail here. I guess we will have to check the plants in the morning.

And to think the missus put lettuce plants in the ground just yesterday.

Environment Canada says we are in for a long, very hot, very dry summer here. Of course, that being an arm of government, I'll believe it when I see it.

Hmm. You mean the government can be wrong sometimes?

I hope her lettuce plants survived.

Do you have a clear view of the sky to see the storms rolling in?

Wrong sometimes? No, I mean they can be wrong MOST of the time.

I was inside when the storm hit so other than my pal's email, it was a surprise.

When we see hail down this way we start looking for some really nasty weather, I hope none of ya'lls plants got hurt Keith.

Well if you guys are looking for your normal rain it's over here - rained darn near everyday since mid April. But hail is definitely worse, so I don't feel so bad now lol

'Tis true...and since yesterday I heard from a couple of other locals, it seems this hailstorm covered at least 50 miles running down the coast.

Some rain in the forecast again for today, but doesn't look too bad so far - but then it's only 7 am here as I write this.

Headed over to the house to get some more finish on the cedar.

It's pretty exciting watching paint dry I know...but it's all I've got right now.

The big overhead beam finally got cleaned off and the first coat of Minwax is on.
