Ok, I’ve been meaning to blog about a lot of things, but I thought I should just throw this one up there:

Highway crew blasts rock cliff above slide – CBCnews.ca

The photos are cool. Basically, they’re blowing up a big chunk of the cliff above the rockpile on the road, so that they can be sure there won’t be any more rockslides in the future (e.g. while they’re clearing the rocks off the road this week).

Sometimes things have to get worse before they become better.

In other news, some of my friends who were stuck in Whistler made it back tonight, finally. Others who are up there for a staff conference are gonna have to take the 9-hour road detour (at the end of the week) to get back to Vancouver, I think.

Ok, I’m going to relate the theme of this blog post to a Bible passage, now, because it’s so true:

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

1 Peter 5:6-11 (ESV)
