I don't Usually ask for it to rain, but...

If you're living anywhere near me, these past few days you've been scrambling to have an evacuation bag packed and at the ready!!

It's a bit of a struggle to decide what to bring and what to leave. 

Thank Heavens my wine is stored in a friends cool, dry, SAFE basement!!

Seriously, though, we are praying for everyones safety, above and beyond anything else. Stuff and things, we can replace, right?  

**A Huge Thank You to all the fire fighters and volunteers working towards getting the fires under control. **

C'mon, RAIN!!

Meanwhile, head office Did rain on my parade this week.  They have announced price increases on all kits and some equipment, effective immediately. 

What will this mean for my customers? Well, for the time being-nothing :))

I will hold off until the New Year, give everyone a few months of grace before I raise the kit prices. They will likely only go up by a couple of bucks, but it's nice to not have to worry about that until next year, Right?
