Bad Weather Camaraderie...

I'll tell you about my weekend later but I just wanted to make a quick comment...

I'm not sure if it's a Canadian thing or just a basic human need but there's something about enduring bad weather together that makes complete strangers strike up random conversation and share stories and commiserate over their collective fate.

Today's instance? A moderately bad ferry ride (70 km/h wind gusts can sure rock even a Superferry) from Swartz Bay to Tsawassen that left 15 minutes late and made it in on time for me to catch my bus. Met a couple nice people and shared some pleasant conversation.

It is events like that which enforce my purely optimist viewpoint that people are inherently good.
