On top of the world

Yup there's my noble steed, A.K.A. the new shagin' wagin'. Our 2006 12 passenger clubwagon... isn't she beautiful? I just love it!
I just wanted to show everyone the we and our stuff will be fine as we are on top of the world there. the water reaching us is extremely unlikely. so there you have it, our temporary abode. no you don't new a new address to send me letters, just send it to the old one I have everything being sent to a post office box until we get our house.

down the road

I took these pictures of this is a house just down the road from me. Heart breaking, eh? If you want to see what it really looks like around here go to


I don't know what's going on, lol. I've kind of learned to just roll with it when it comes to my life ;-)
We have an apt. in Queensway and that's under "evacuation notice" not "evacuation order". Which means we don't have to leave yet but be ready to leave within a 1 hour notice when given. And I am definitely ready. I'm spending the night at my mom's and spending the days at the apt. but my cell phone is always with me so that is the best way to get ahold of me... or leave a message with my mom.
It's a little nutty around here with the roads all cut off. I went shopping yesterday and saw a woman with 8 gallons of milk (i happened to know who she is... she has a small family) what the heck is she thinking? then right after that I saw someone else with two carts of bread!!!!! come on buy a bag of flour. there is almost nowhere to buy water. again people use your head we can always boil and filter our water if it ever came to that (like Vancouver was doing) People are acting as if we will be cut off from the rest of the world for months. when it is likely only a few days to a week. but even if it goes a bit longer, if no one panics then we'll be fine... but you know how mob mentality works.
As for us we are fine, enjoying some family time and fun distractions like playing at Nana's, going to the swimming pool and other things.
There was an active logging road that people where using for emergencies (not me thank you. it's one lane logging road with logging trucks using it and I don't have a radio thingy in my van to know who's coming or going- silly me;-)
The water won't get to where we are staying but if it gets any higher we won't be able to go anywhere as the two road in and out of Queensway are close to the river my become impassable. Hence why I'm staying at my mom's at night.

Fludd ;-)

the first picture was taken at fishermans park on Kalum river, june 5 the second picture was taken june 6 not 24 hours later the third picture is taken from on the other side of the river. obviously that side was not faring as well. the forth picture was taken at the entrance and I laughed my butt off.

About freakin time!!!

Holly super security batman! I finally figured out what my ultra top secret password was. whew! The fate of the world hung in the balance for a moment there.
Lots has happened since I last posted and I don't really have time to fill in the gaps at the moment. I know, I know the suspense is killing you but your just going to have to wait, lol. I have been getting a lot of people asking how things are going around here with the floods, road closures and all round basic insanity. Well... I'll let you know with the next post ;-P
