What can you do when the average precipitation is almost 11 feet each year?  (That’s well over 3 meters!)

  • Accept that potholes happen.
  • Commit to continuous maintenance program.
  • Promote a sense of humour.

These wicked road conditions remind me of our farm in northern Alberta.
Each rainy season, the driveway was impassable. We parked & packed groceries the 1/4 mile to the house.
Each year we added more rocks & gravel.

This is one reason I really enjoy the surf haven of Tofino.

  • It’s another crazy place of extremes.
  • Folks love it anyway.
  • They have a sense of humour.

PS – The signs are from the Tofino Botanical Garden & the potholes are from MacKenzie Beach Road.
