Ottawa Storm

Thinking of everyone affected by the three six tornados and storm that thundered through the Ottawa-Gatineau area on Friday.

Grateful for the people who have worked through the aftermath of the storm, to look after others, respond to emergencies, assess and address the damage, share shelter, food and water, and keep lines of communication open.

Here at home, our power outage and disruption of internet and phone service were inconvenient but manageable thanks to camping equipment, kind friends and a bit of gear (e.g. wind-up radio) that runs on human or solar power.

All a reminder of the fragility of our built-up existence on this intricate planet, and our interdependence with its systems—and each other.

Take care, everyone.
