Australians are advised to be cautious because of "the risk of a terrorist attack" in Canada, heavy snow, windchill and ice in the winter, and forest fires that can erupt "at any time."
British Columbia, in particular, was singled out as being in an active earthquake zone and "subject to avalanches," along with Alberta.
Lord!! Canada isn't the only place that gets huge amounts of snow and ice and windchill!! I can't believe they probably still think we live in igloos in 2008! Don't they listen to the news and see what's going on in other places in the world? I always thought Canada a pretty decent and safe place to live, although will admit a little shiver of fear whenever I think of our high chance of earthquakes along the Pacific coast. Last year, I decided to put together a survival kit....just in case. So far, I have a flashlight, you turn a crank to get light, instead of using batteries that will die out. Then I kind of forgot about survival! So, to all you people in Ontario reading this, you can rest assurd if an earthquake happen's here....we have light!! Guess, I should get on this some more and become more serious. Maybe Australia know's something we don't.
The sun continues to shine here and it's lovely out. We've had a good week, weatherwise and otherwise! Friday has been a quiet day at home. We'll have our supper soon...spareribs and salad, and then I'm cutting up apples and pears and throwing in candied ginger, and cooking it all together in the microwave. Getting hungry thinkingof it!
Then my bath, jump into bed, start a new book or watch tv and there ends another day and another week. They do fly by! Here's wishing you all a fun filled and safe weekend!
