from the "drip drip drip" dept.

THANK GOD there is light at the end of the tunnel. The light is Belize. The tunnel is the non-stop rain that we've been experiencing since the dawn of time.

But wait: it gets silly!

Yesterday would have been the day that Vancouver tied the record for the most number of rainy days in a row. The record was 28. And Sunday would have been 28. But the rain eased off -- and while it rained downtown and practically everywhere else in this city of microclimates -- there was no measurable precip. at Vancouver International Airport -- where the official rain guage is. Which is also RICHMOND!

So, we were one short of tying a 53-year-old record. And today: it's raining again. And there is rain in the forecast from now until the end of time.

At least it's -30.

Elsewhere -- working as hard as ever. Number of days of since Dec 26? 2! Sheesh. This week I am working on Heads Up, a kids astronomy show. Then back to CBC, then back to CTV.

Woo hoo!
