Here we go again

Last year, Okanagan Lake got to 1.3m above full pool, as it's called. This meant major flooding, a few thousand docks destroyed, etc. This year, the lake level was drawn down early at the dam in Penticton in hopes of allowing room for this year's deep snowpack and a few torrential rain storms. However, this means we've increased flooding for our downstream neighbors. Lot to be said for a 130 km long reservoir of fresh water of which valley residents use about 1m for residential and agriculture purposes. We live a few hundred m elevation higher up in the hills and only affects us with turbidity in our residential water supply. Boil water advisory, that is. Elsewhere, many of the streams feeding the lake chain (Okanagan, Skaha, Vaseux, Osoyoos) have breached their banks and the past month has been nothing but floods and landslides in the news.

Double Double Trouble

Only in Canada.
Woman detained after video appears to show her throwing own feces at Tim Hortons staff

Well, fwiw, Langley is mostly a farming community, and it's the time of year when farmers manure their fields. Or in this case, Tim Horton's employees.

And... there's video, if you want to go looking for it.
