Wow, I can hardly believe I'm already at 50 posts. A huge thank you to everyone that reads and has commented on my blog. This has been a really great experience so far.
Some great news:
I am getting my transfer! I'm British Columbia bound, I'll be living in a town (small city?) on the ocean. It's going to be a huge and amazing change. After 12 years living north of 68, I'm going to be south of 60!
I don't think I'll change my blog name though, I'll still be further north than most :) Plus I may be coming back here to work periodically and I still have family and friends here.
Exhibit A on reasons to leave:
Yep, that's snow and it's here to stay. This is the view from my front door yesterday. It's been snowing here for about 2 weeks but it's mostly melted until now. This is actually a pretty late start for snow cover.
