The Rain Makes Us Cranky

The Letters to the Editor in the just appearing yesterday June edition of the All Point Bulletin are a striking example of what you're going to get here in May when it won't stop raining even though we think it's time for spring and perhaps summer: I mean, the summer solstice is about 20 days away and from then on the days start getting shorter.

There are people who don't like the price of water.   Somehow unclear about the fact that we get our water from Vancouver and it can kind of charge us whatever it wants, which is not good, but at least they MUST provide us with water.  Just think what would happen if one day they could just decide, "No, we need our water more than we need to be supplying it to this weird little U.S. community down south."  Exactly how long does the writer think it would take to get Whatcom County to supply us with water?  And at what terrific price?

And people who feel that bad behavior (at least in their view) of Canadians should be stopped immediately else it tarnishes the reputations of Canadians generally.  And people who are advising the County about how Lily Point Reserve might be better structured.   I sympathize (to an extent) with them all, but mostly....well, I think it's just too much rain in late May.  A few days of sun will cheer us all up considerably.
