…and then the rains came…


This picture. It’s part of the wedding ritual of the Kwakwaka’wakw tribe.

I am NOT making that up.

I was looking for old footage of somebody baling out a canoe, because that’s what I’ve been doing to my kitchen all evening. We haven’t had rain in ages (driest October in a thousand years, or some shit) and then the heavens opened for a couple of hours.

So, like an old fishing smack, our kitchen roof had dried out and the seams opened up. It was leaking in parallel lines across the stove and working surfaces. Yay.

Fortunately, the kitchen is the only room in the house that does this, as far as we can tell, and it doesn’t do it often. The frame of it is old, but the roof is Seventies. Like Nineteen-Seventies, brrrr.

Anyway. All clean. Hamburgers tonight. It’s the weekend, w00t!
