    Comgrats on the new job!

    I'm wondering how I missed this column earlier - especially with the discussion of last September's tornadoes in Ottawa, one of which touched down just 400 m north of our house.

    Damn that was close!

    It was such a surreal experience, I still can't believe it happened.

    If it weren't for the downed trees and damaged houses I see everyday while walking the dog, I'd think it wasn't real too.

    But all those bare tree trunks in the Arlington Woods and Bruce Pit are stark evidence of the raw power of an F2 Tornado.

    But for the grace of god, there go I....

    The new job is amazing, and a massive challenge. I'm literally writing the manuals for the company. It has gone from a smallish family business to a smallish chain, so my job is to reorganize it almost from scratch. I really feel like I have a chance to leave my mark on something. It's a neat situation.

    Unfortunately though, it means another move will happen this year as it makes more sense to move to the west GTA. Right now I have to drive an hour to the head office, and my closest stores are 45 minutes away.

    I'm a little impressed with how quickly I got used to driving here, but it's still super annoying.
