Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Winter in Tijuana has none of the traditional road-closing snow, white-out conditions, and driveway-shoveling common to Canada, but that doesn't mean that we aren't at times held hostage by inclement weather.

This was the scene in downtown Tijuana when I went to pick up my daughter Jo from the airport.

You can imagine how deep these waters were for my little Mazda3.

Especially when the über-manly Hummer in the next lane raced through to prove... well, something, but merely accomplished dousing my car completely in what we quaintly refer to as "black water".

For the record, "black water" means "sewage". (Suddenly, I have a whole 'nuther angle on that famous Doobie Brothers song...)

But when daughters are involved, fathers find a way. Jo is here, Christmas is coming, and aside from the cardboard jungle we are creating as we anticipate moving back to Canada in a couple of weeks, life is as normal as it ever gets around here. :)

Including all the leaks in the roof of our rental house, but that's another story.


  1. Robby, where are you moving back to????

  2. Hi Bill,

    Back to the nestled-in-the-Canadian-Rockies town of Kelowna.

    But still a Blue Bombers fan. :)
