drove back to surrey, took the train from surrey, then a bus from the skytrain home – collected john then went out to meet laura and a co-worker that’s in town. we got really silly and it was a really fun time. since we’ve been going to fogg n suds for most of the canucks games this season (and they have these lil prize giveaways during games… and there’s only 1 game left) they let us raid the swag cupboard. we now have 2 glass mugs, a keychain and a foam finger to go with our bobble head, flag and mug insulator thingy.
we got home and john had a msg from his brother waiting – iowa city was hit by an F2 tornado last night. the university town looks pretty messy this morning and the damage looks pretty mucky. we have yet to get in contact with his parents but everyone seems to be okay. he’ll have audio and more details up on his site later. this comes about 2 days after we watched a show on NOVA about tornadoes – weird. he keeps asking me if i’m SURE i would ever want to relocate (out of vancouver and possibly back to iowa) :p
