Power went out again yesterday evening and came back on overnight. I think it was only out for about 6 hours this time.
I've certainly had plenty of freezing weather lately. We all thought EC was nuts for forecasting a whole week below freezing for Abby, but they ended up being surprisingly close. My high over the last week was 2.4C, and in the last 11 days it hasn't been warmer than 3.1C. The last "typical" mild day was the 20th when it reached 5.7C.
I spent some time out taking pictures today. A bit of melting today, but still lots of beauty to be found. Here's a couple. I don't want to clog the main thread with too many, so perhaps I'll post more in the dedicated thread.
Great pictures Abby_wx! I was so bummed that almost every neighborhood in Abby had record breaking icing and I had very little to none. I feel so ripped off. We almost bought a townhome below Eagle Mountain that had an amazing view of the Sumas Prairie and the mountains. We loved it and best of all, its one of the best locations in Abbotsford for getting severe weather and experiencing power outage fun. (Obviously thats not the reason my parents wanted to move there lol) but we loved the unit and the view. Sadly, we were unable to bid or put an offer on it. We tried and tried. My dad even tried to put on offer on it before viewing the inside since we saw all the pictures online and drove up to it one day and looked at it on the outside. But they wouldn't let us. The problem, was that our realtor was not the one listing it so he had to try to set up a viewing but the listing realtor woudn't let us. Finally, he told us it was sold. Turns, out, the listing realtor refused to show the unit to anybody because he wanted to buy it and didn't want to lose in a bid. So he wouldn't show it or let anybody bid on it so that he could buy it himself. Classic dishonest unethical people in our immoral society. We lost it due to a conflict of interest! Oh well. But still... me and my dad were talking about it yesterday and he's still mad about it
Thanks. Yes, I did find it odd that north-central Abby got so little snow and ice this time. You had me beat last winter. It seems like there's either too much outflow or not enough, and someone always gets screwed no matter what.
That's a shame you didn't get that place. I'm sure you would have liked it there. I think that's very close to where Arbetrader lives.
It seems like our real estate industry is rigged in favour of criminals, dishonest practices, and shady stuff in general. At least the government has begun cracking down, but there is much more that could be done.
Yeah its a funny microclimate here. Yes, it is a shame we didn't get that place. It does suck but I'm blessed to have food, water, heat, and shelter not to mention the place we are in is really nice and has a gorgeous backyard. So I shouldn't complain. I'm sure I will still get my fun later in January Despite the current models, I don't think we are done with winter. I think we will still see at least one possibly a couple more cold snaps and snow events later in January and or February. What do you think?
