Technically I’m sitting in the Tim Hortons parking lot in Hope tweeting this right now, but you know.

Have I ever seen the rain, CCR? Oh hell yes. I’m practically swimming home in it, currently splooshing through Hope with my windshield wipers cranked up as high as they’ll go.

People are surprisingly confused and offended about not being on one of the newer coastal-class ferries.

Ferry knitting initiated! On board one of the venerable old ferries in the BC Ferries fleet: the Queen of New Westminister.

I have contemplated the drivebc highway cams, and concluded that it looks rainy, but not snowy on the Coquihalla. Time to finish my coffee, throw some clothes in a suitcase, head for the ferry, and if all goes according to plan, crack the mountain ramparts (away from the sea)!

Seeing family while I’m back in Vernon this weekend will be good, but will it be as good as doing all the laundry I’m bringing with me for free in my parents’ washer and dryer?

“But in a world where nothing matters, Vancouver Island traditions least of all, maybe that’s a Nanaimo bar too. Maybe the butter tart is just a Nanaimo bar in a muffin tin. Maybe this cake is a Nanaimo bar.”

Yesss, glorious, there's a 10:00 am ferry sailing tomorrow morning. I don't have to punish myself with the 9:00 am sailing!

Great to see money being invested in revitalization efforts! Through $50M in funding last year, the First Peoples’ Cultural Council has been able to offer more support, including 167 language grants and more training opportunities.

Yesterday, firefighters sent a inside to assess whether the spire would crumble. It also sprayed water in critical locations, while keeping human firefighters far from danger. This is where could show their true potential one day.

This apparently well sourced French news report in the last hour confirms: ALL THREE OF THE ROSACE WINDOWS SURVIVED. The organ suffered severe damage, but contrary to what the church said last night, was not destroyed.

There are now multiple independent French news reports that both the South and North Rose Windows of Notre Dame are at least largely intact (although this doesn't mean they haven't sustained possibly severe damage). The status of the West window, La Rosace Ouest, is less clear.

Huh. I was quite ready to dismiss this opinion, but I admit I didn’t know how much Canada’s other energy policies mattered. Time to learn more.

A useful piece just out on the fate of the Rose Windows, focussed on what is now definitely known - unfortunately and frustratingly, there is a lack of clear news from official sources.

Also, if you read French, this is a brief but pretty interesting discussion of the firefighters' strategy in attacking the fire, from the spokesperson of the pompiers de Paris.
