Stormy Weather

Another Sunday's paddling has been wiped out by stormy weather. That's three Sundays in a row. This must be the stormiest November on record as we are dealing with our fourth bad wind and rain storm this month. The mid-part of Vancouver Island was hammered by a bad storm earlier this week. Downtown Port Alberni was flooded out and without power for a couple of days. They haven't seen anything like this since the 1964 tsunami flooded the town. Vancouver has also been pummled. Two million people are on a "boil water advisory."
But I guess we better get used to this. Climate change is here. We're living it.
