My sister is down from Medicine Hat Alberta for a visit. She had 5 days off and decided on a road trip. It was nice to have company in the evening while the Queen worked but I wimped out and couldn't stay awake past 10:30. The sister stayed up and waited for the Queen. They nust of had a good chat as the Queen never came to bed til 1:30.
The rain and above freezing temps ovenight are sure making the snow pack dissappear. I'll have to give the guys in the control tower a call and see if the diversion is operanal yet. While the diversion is flowing the controls are manned 24/7 with a 2 man crew. It sure gives the controllers some nice overtime and fat checks.
Portage is also the distributiom point point for sand bags for the province.I can remember working a 12 hour shift in the tower and then loading semi's with bags for 24 hours. WE loaded over a million bags that day.It's a good thing they go out empty and are filled where they are needed.

I staryed to take some photos of my clocks for a future blog but wasn't happy with hem. They seemed blurry even with the anti shake node on. I'll have to set up a tripod and try again.
