Spent 8 hours on the road yesterday to leave cool boarded up buildings like this behind us.



Just kidding! There are plenty of abandoned buildings in the Great Canadian North, including, apparently, my grandmother's house.

We struggled up the hill in our under-powered car in the black midnight and were greeted by only one dog, an empty locked cabin, and a dead thing on the porch. We couldn't find the key in any of the usual places, and the other dog never came back.

Grandma has no running water, electricity, or reliable contact with the outside world, so we usually just show up and hope she's reading her neighbour's mail with a magnifying glass, waiting to bestow pumpkin bread and nanaimo bars upon her unannounced children. In the face of her absence, the anticipated familial cribbage game in the light of an oil lamp is postponed.

Hermits! UGH.
