2021

Good Morning ALL! I hope that this finds you well. Alvin and I are doing well.

On November 12, 2021, an extreme rainstorm and snow was forecast for southern British Columbia. The rain did not stop. It just kept coming causing mudslides, unsafe road conditions and major flooding. Entire regions of the Fraser Valley were and are under flood water. The Fraser Valley is known for its rich farmland. There are many livestock farms (mainly cows and chickens and goats) and berry farms. I worked alongside my mum and sister as a teenager at one of those berry farms in southern B.C. at a town named Agassiz, and it breaks my heart to know that so many of these farms are destroyed. Many towns were completed flooded. Thousands of people were forced to leave their homes. Farmers trying desperately to save their animals. The loss of animal life is in the thousands. My thoughts and prayers are with the people and for the loss of animal life in southern British Columbia. Cleanup and repairs will take months to what can be saved. They had a hot dry summer followed by a wet fall and then this!

There is nothing else that I can say after this …… my heart is broken.

Continuing to this life with kindness, respect, compassion, patience, understanding, love, laughter and gratitude.

If you are dry and warm you are lucky, as am I.

Always, Carol & Alvin
