Roads closed

This is the road to our house. Two of the three roads out of our area have been closed for a day already, the third in treacherously poor condition. We drive around this avalanche arm to get home -- the avalanches are much higher up the mountain than our place. Still, we feel a combination of adventurousness, privilege and defiance as we drive around it.

Not that we're driving around it very often. We managed to borrow Chuck's truck for a couple of hours to get to Aikido this afternoon, but otherwise we're pretty much stuck at home. He's on call so he really needs the truck. When we took it today he had to spend the time sitting at the hospital in case an emergency came in.

So we're at home. There's lots of math, yoga, reading, baking, reading and snow-shovelling happening.

    My husband said that the Okanagan was "cut off" right now too - what with mudslides and avalanches. What fun, eh!
