Global Warming??

Not here thats for sure! We are breaking winter records of all kinds these days. Victoria had the most snow in all of Canada? Victoria... who would of thunk?

This is the first time in ages that all of Canada has been under snow all at the same time. We have been getting walloped in Vancouver. Three major dumps of snow in one week.

Snowy Docks

Huge avalaches of snow slide off the roof of the shop every now and again with a thundering crash. One of the areas it likes to let go is right in front of the main gate to the property. I would hate to get caught under it as it is enough to break your neck if it hit you dead on.

David has been out every day trying to shovel the snow off the roof of his floathome. The extra weight was pushing the place down very close to the water. With 2 feet of snow on the roof and another 2 feet on the way,he spent a precarious two days perched on a ladder trying to dislodge as much as he could. It did the trick and he is up about 3-4 inches from yesterday. There is still alot of snow left up there but the immediate danger is over.

Unfortunatly one of the other tenents here wasn't so lucky. He left for a few days to do some visiting over the holidays. We woke up this morning to find his boat at the bottom of the river.

There is so much snow and ice, that trying to salvage it at this point would be dangerous and extremely hard work. I feel for the guy, it was his home with all his possesions on board. Im sooo glad my boat isn't in the river. The danger from the ice and snow is great right now. My 18 ft boat is still in the water and Ive had to go out every day and shovel all the snow off it. The back bilge area is full of frozen water. I will have to keep a close eye on things as it starts to melt.

My boat had been completly cleared of snow yesterday, this is what I woke up this morning

We took a break from shoveling last night and went to Watermania, a nearby swimming complex. We spent a few hours soaking in the hot tubs and taking turns in the steam and sauna rooms. Took a few breathtaking rides on the water slides and finished the night by going to see "The Yes Man" at the movies. It was a good laugh and a good reminder as to how we miss opportunities in our lives by turning down offers and opportunities that come our way.

I turned down about 20 party invitations before I finally said yes and went to the party where I met David...and look how much that decision changed my life! So next time you are offered something and go to automatically say no...take and chance and say yes...something wonderful might happen.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all. xxoo Rhianna
