Snowfall in the first couple of weeks of March has increased the Alameda Reservoir inflow forecast. As such we are required under the terms of the 1989 Canada-US- Agreement to bring the reservoir down to 558.0 m prior to the start of runoff.

It occurred to me this morning that in order to be willing to give to your community, one first has to feel that they have something to give, and that happens when your own needs are met.

When you work from a home office, snow day has a different meaning than when one must commute. My morning started like most do, I get up at 5:30 a.m., do a little research, read and share the posts I like, stick my tongue out at the posts I think are stupid, scan the rest and drink at least two cups of coffee. This morning, it is Kick Ass...(the brand of coffee, not the motive)...and this morning most of the posts have to do with the weather. We are experiencing the worst blizzard of the... More...
