Well, that was... interesting.
As in 'May you live in interesting times.'
The vernal equinox is up and running, but oh! the weather. Winnipeg has been Dumped Upon by a Colorado Low, and consequently We are up to Our asses in ice and snow all over again.
In itself, that's not a big deal. However, there's a bit of a problem with a certain large river that runs through My demesne. It's flood time, and that isn't good.
Being twelve years older than I was during Manitoba's fabled Flood of the Century, My shoulders ache mightily at the very thought of sandbagging. Those suckers are heavy. And unwieldy, too. But I do have fond memories of My shift on the front lines.
Please, if someone needs you to help in the front lines of a sandbagging operation this season, spare them at least one evening of your time. Time is of the essence.
