Sunset the evening before the really big wind storm. 12 hours with no power Saturday certainly is a practical reminder of how much we rely on electricity. Trees down, stores closed. Rain (which was very welcome). Couldn't grind coffee beans. Post not written. Some areas still without power. News Media saying worst storm in a decade, perhaps up to 300,000 people affected. More power is coming back on today as more grids are repaired (trees on lines seemed to be the big problem).
Rain finally. Virtually no rain since May. Some areas on coastal BC are classified level 4 (no use of water outside of the home (see my sister's posts here and here). Our area is level 3 - hand watering plants only. No other use of water outside. Brown lawns. Fines for any other type of water use.
Brief update of my garden area. Peas, beans and tomatoes.
Time to pick up the routines and carry on. Rain forecast for the rest of the week.
