- Where am I?:cool:
This was a question that put to me yesterday by someone who wanted to know “why I was so interested with weather” i.e. warming trends, drought, water rationing and forest fires. So read on, but first, another question that needs to be answered first becuase I always get asked this.
Well, I live in Southern British Columbia, on the West Coast of Canada, very near the city of Vancouver, and I’m a 20 min drive from the US border. The town I live in is called Fort Langley just North of Langely City: go ahead, find it on a map? And I am ready for the someone to ask, “Canada, you mean snow and ice, how can hot weather way the heck up there be a problem”? Well, I’m not going to qualify an answer to that.
Anyway, in the Vancouver Sun, our Provincial news paper, stated that April was the warmest it has ever being overall, “ever”. Meaning that per average, we broke every temperature record that we have, along with min precipitation and humidity. Our average increase in temperature was anywhere from 2.1c to 1.1c above normal. I remember that on some days, I had actually turned on the air conditioner in the middle of the afternoon because of the heat and I kept thinking to myself, “dammit it’s only April” :shock:? I remember looking at the outside thermometer and reading 35c while the leaves were just budding on the trees.
Our weather is getting too weird :roll:. I hope the heck our summer is tame compared to our Spring we are having.
- Is there a thief amongst us?:cry:
Last Thursday while I was either at work, or at school, I notice at the end of that day that my CDs and CD player was missing. Point: my CD player does not attach to my vehicle, it is one of those portable jobies with headphones. Anyway, I sometimes forget about it in my home or in the vehicle, it was not until I went out for a drive to a friend’s place that I noticed them gone on Friday.
What was freaky, today at my work, all the managers and ass managers (I like saying that) were in what we employees call
“DEPCOM 5 level” [EDIT: should be DEFCOM 1, Thanks Beel]] 😐 meetings, and during our breaks, lunch periods and the end of each shift, there was a ass manager positioned at the entrance of the building. One of employees in another department told me that a huge investigation was going one that (that person) could not tell me because of fear of being fired 😕 .
I wonder if my CD player has anything to do with that. Nothing else was taken, just my music. Please give them back: *snif* *snif*…
