Be The Best.

I’ll have a mudslide please.

I’ll have a mudslide please.

This request really makes no sense except if you were in a bar and ordering a drink.

A mudslide is made with irish cream, and a few other adult beverage components.

Outside of the beverage department, you would never order a real mudslide.

Take a look at this photo.  I wouldn’t even show this to you, except that this story has already been widely publicized and shown dozens of times on TV.

Mudslide carnage near Oliver, British Columbia (July 2010)

Take a look at where the mud levels got up to.  Thankfully no one died in this slide.  Many times that is not the case.

Some slides have very defined causes, some do not and some remain undetermined.

One thing is for certain.  To the people whose homes and property and lives were altered, they were not expecting a mudslide that day.

The simple point is, we don’t know what is going to happen.

We can’t live like a mudslide is eminent every minute of the day, but when a mudslide happens it is the response that is generally measured.

The response by everyone around us from the inner circle to the acquaintances to those that don’t even know us has been and is spectacular.

Thanks for your caring.

You are helping us rebuild to the New Normal.
