Hail To Davidson

Craig Davidson's The Saturday Night Ghost Club New Book

I was just online browsing for images of this crazy hail storm on highway 22 when I found this other link and then another link. In the second link I found some really good information that I feel compelled to share. The same author who wrote Precious Cargo has written a new novel titled The Saturday Night Ghost Club and it comes out this August. Well, look how things turned around there! From hail to a new Davidson book. Things are look up!

Did You Know : Campfire Ban In Effect

I imagine the propane fire pits are flying off the shelf.

did you know - city of fernie news

From City of Fernie’s website:

Campfire Ban Effective July 26

Effective on July 26, 2018 at 1 PM a Campfire Ban for the region including the City of Fernie and area. This campfire ban will remain in place until the public is otherwise notified.

The Southeast Fire Centre is currently experiencing hot and dry conditions. The fire danger rating is “moderate” in some areas, with larger areas rated “high” and “extreme”. Forest fuels are drying out quickly, and hot weather and dry lightning are in the forecast. It is crucial to reduce the risk of human-caused wildfires, so the BC Wildfire Service can deal with any naturally occurring fires that start in the region.

This prohibition applies to all public and private land unless specified otherwise – for example, in a local government bylaw. Please check with local government authorities for any other restrictions before lighting any fire. Read more here.

Western Greyhound Operations Shutting Down In October

Fernie’s Greyhound is shutting down. That’s crazy. This means no passenger bus service and parcel delivery in Fernie anymore. It’s big news.

CBC.ca: “Greyhound Canada is ending its passenger bus and freight services in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and cancelling all but one route in B.C. — a U.S.-run service between Vancouver and Seattle.

The changes take effect the end of October, which will make Ontario and Quebec the only regions where the familiar running-dog logo will continue to grace Canadian highways.

“This decision is regretful and we sympathize with the fact that many small towns are going to lose service,” Greyhound Canada senior vice-president Stuart Kendrick said in an interview with The Canadian Press.

“But simply put, the issue that we have seen is the routes in rural parts of Canada — specifically Western Canada — are just not sustainable anymore.”…read more.

Phones Cannot Swim

Phoenix on a bike ride - Instagram

I’ve had my iPhone 4S since my daughter was 6 months old. She’s almost 7! I’ve mentioned this cellphone a few times along the way but today, perhaps, it might have dinged it’s last ding. It might have taken its last photo of my children. It might have overheated in my truck dashboard for the last time. The poor thing. I’ve taken this phone for a long ride and it’s now a dark black screen of nothing. Phones cannot swim. They die. Lesson relearned.

It’s in rice right now but I’m already researching what phone I’m going to get next and it’s going to be AMAZING compared to the old grandpa phone I was using. Look at me, I’ve moved on so quickly.

So obviously I want a new iPhone can but can you recommend something better?
