This has been my favourite news story of the season. From the May 19th edition of the Klondike Sun (only recently posted online):Share on Facebook
After cruelly taunting us for months, summer has arrived in full force! It wasn’t even noon today that I raced back home to shut the windows and roof hatches and put the AC on auto. When I came back a few hours later my grateful cats were lying under the air vents.
It’s so hot that the thermostat is at its maximum and the AC is running continuously. It’s generating water that is being collected in the gutters and dripping to the ground, a most peculiar sight in such arid conditions!Share on Facebook
After much option considering, I have decided to spend the fall and possibly part of the winter back in the Okanagan, in Osoyoos and I’m optimistic that this fall will be different. One of the motivating factors for going was that I will be joining my friend Donna. I miss you! Osoyoos is definitely more appealing than was Oliver, being a slightly bigger community with better stores and restaurants.
I have a firm booking starting October 1st, so I am thinking of heading out of Dawson early this year so as to be able to take a partially new route. I’ll be in better shape financially than I was last fall, I’m better at mountain driving, and I’ve worked my tail off this summer. So, I’d like to take two weeks to get back south and see new things.
The cold season is going to shape itself as it goes along because of something I’m not ready to divulge yet, so I don’t know yet if I’ll be looking for work in Osoyoos. I’ll focus on getting there then regroup.
It feels like I only arrived in Dawson yesterday and now I’m already making plans to leave. Where did the summer go? It’s August tomorrow!!!Share on Facebook
