APARTMENTS that until recently were lovely homes suddenly went up in flames and became burnt rubbish in White Rock. The City placed blue fencing around the disaster area for safety.
Unfortunately, no fence could have stopped the initial fire, that started at an adjacent construction site, from spreading to the complex. What caused the first spark is still a mystery but isthought to have been set deliberately at this writing. Dry weather mixed with light breezes no doubt fueled the flames.

Battling the blaze depleted the small city’s reservoirs and caused a temporary boil advisory for drinking water. Neighboring Surrey supplied additional water and multiple firefighters to help extinguish a disaster that became a wake up call about local preparedness during catastrophes.
PRETTY CHAIRS on porches and front lawns are typical in my world but rarely is anyone sitting in them. Most aspire to relax in one when not quite so busy. Oddly enough, you don't have to actually sit in such chairs to feel their intent. Having one nearby is enough to evoke feelings of leisure, gentler times, cottages and cozy verandahs. A single glance produces a moment of meditation. And if you have no porch, a wall is the next best place to hang onto your picture-perfect dreams.
