It does sound like a lovely service, with the traditions expected in a military situation. And after poking around on Google maps it looks like not driving to Ottawa is a good decision.
I have the WeatherUnderground app on my phone, and I pay $2 a year to keep it ad free. It includes a feature where you can ask it to display when the perfect conditions for walking will exist in a day—the temperature, wind, precipitation (not!), and during daylight. My app is showing only the earliest morning hours as suitable right now, so I'm getting up earlier and taking the dogs for their walk. The good thing about it also is that when I check the weather in the morning I see that green bar and remember that I SHOULD take a walk today. I'm not to the swimming pool exercises stage yet so it'll have to be walking for now.
The dryer is working after my repair, but I'm going to keep hanging laundry on the line outside; it's a tiny gesture, but with fires raging and oceans rising I don't need to run a box of hot air to dry my clothes when the solar dryer works fine for free. And I think instead of sending paper shreds to the landfill I'll just dump them in the garden or the compost. I see people dumping paper shreds in the recycle bin but suspect they go straight to the trash. The butterfly effect, starting here in Fort Worth, Texas.
