When the hail started to hit the metal top of our tent trailer, the sound was deafening.
At first, we laughed somewhat uproariously. It was exciting!
But then as the storm continued — and the hail started to accumulate, rivers started to form on the roadways and the melting ice chips started to drip inside our tent trailer — we all fell quiet.
After all, a violent hail storm was the last thing our group of family and friends was expecting. When I booked this summer camping trip in Bend, Oregon, my biggest worry was that it would be too hot to do anything.
And it was incredibly hot that first day — and most of the next.
But then that afternoon, the sky started to darken. We could hear a distant, almost continuous rumbling, and the temperature quickly dropped.
The wind suddenly picked up. And then the hail hit.
When was the last time you used the phone… to get transit directions?
And I don’t mean texting or using an app!
I mean actually placing a call and talking to a live agent.
The other morning, I was taking the bus from downtown to my home office.
I had been at an early- morning Vancouver Board of Trade event. These events usually start early (around 7:00 am) and finish by 9:00. This particular event featured a BCIT professor speaking on the topic of different generations in the workplace.
After the event, I jumped on a bus and mulled what I’d learned—while carefully shuffling my feet out of the way of fellow passengers.
