Since I would starve to death being one of the hookers I might as well go for being part of the boat crew, first one hired would be 'Saul the Lawyer'. (I know how your world works) Living in the doldrums would be ideal but you can't have everything.

For the religious part there would be interest free loans to the employees and the year end bonuses start at the bottom and works it way up to the top. Have to study Job to see what he was doing. God isn't against money until you start lying to get some of it.

I doubt being religious has anything to do with stripping the south facing side of a hill if you are planting something that has harvest included. Other than needing a leap of faith on your part it isn't a mind-boggling suggestion once certain parameters have been met.

Park right above the rift and run a lottery, . . . actually you may want to skip that part in case it is gas without any 02 in it that comes up from the rift itself.

Wonder if bags of coco leafs could be floated to the surface and the 'tea' all drank before heading for port, . . . you know legally.
Name it something cool like 'Exiled Inc'

Climate's changed some around here. It used to be quite a bit drier. Not as dry as the Okanagan, but drier and it is more humid now, too. We used to get colder winters with a LOT more snow. And in the decades we've been here, the temp has never hit 40C .... except for this year.

As far as I can discover, climates have not changed as quickly as in the past couple hundred years or so. Go figure.

And although California has had longer droughts (keep in mind this one isn't over yet either), ground conditions have not been this dry since the 9th century, apparently. hehe There are folks that actually count tree rings hehe ( California's Worst Drought Ever Is 1st Taste of Future )

Anyways, yup, we have fires around here. The smoke was pretty heavy last night. I'm not sure if that is what woke me or not, but it was sure noticeable.

I wonder if all the dams on the Columbia isn't responsible for some of the changes. I don't think Revelstoke ever gets the snow now we saw back in 60s.

Maybe I'm mistaken but I always thought religion was more concerned with moral matters than legal matters.

I doubt it. The dams have been there for quite some time. I think the newest is from 1968.

In the reclamation dept one with some deep pockets could flatten out the tops of some hills to fill in some small revenues and in a dry area the top should be bowl shaped so excess water is stored in a poll in case it gets drier. (the filled in areas can be stabilized in a number of ways so they are never in dander of sliding. Planting what burned down might see it burn again if it even grows back, planting what grew in an area that had more moisture might open the doors to something more profitable than trees.

If the higher elevations get a dusting early the odds are it won't melt but is does have the power to make the days cooler. If it stays later in the spring that shortens the growing season downwind, in this case Sask and Man.

Depth would be how much Pacific air came over the great divide.

Religion helps a person learn to ask questions, when you are not shy of having enough information to solve the problem you don't have to ask very many questions.

Erm, we have plenty of water around here. Like I said, it USED to be drier (warmer air carries more water in it than colder air). And the "hills" we have can't be easily logged unless it's done with a Kamov or Sikorsky or some kind of heavy-lifting helo. Roads to the tops of our "hills" are too expensive, so if you want to flatten out the top of a mountain, you better get used to a hand shovel.

Fire resistant trees are not in any way 'illegal' in British Columbia that is idiotic bullshit.

Aspen are early colonizers of fire scorched areas.

Generally speaking if you see a stand of Aspen it indicates that a fire has been through that area.

If you see a stand of aspen it's only 1 tree.

Cliff is scared of glycol as a wetting agent for a better coverage of a salt.

He is afraid of natural booze and salts.

Boo!

Best just to leave well enough alone, Mowich. He's giving us a blessed break from Trump!

We invade a place and kill off millions of buffalo so we can bring in grain and cattle and we get to the forest and it is 'hands-off' because we value a few birds that currently live there?? In the old days we would have burned it down and replanted it trees that we have a use for. Today nature can do the burns and we just throw out the seeds of the trees we want replacing it so 40 years down the road they are ready for harvesting, repeat every 40 years. Hardwood rather than softwood would be a good change as the muskeg can supply lots of spruce.

Have you ever had a bison hot dog? Didn't think so. So much for using the whole bison.
