The last few weeks have been full of excitement.  One of the highlights was the Ladysmith Light-Up.  This event had thousands of people flocking to the town of Ladysmith to see the main street lit up with decorations and watch the floats go by.  Since it only started after the sun had set the floats were all decorated with a myriad of lights which made it one of the most unique parades I've ever seen.

Here's a short clip of one of the floats going by.

The night also ended with a fireworks display which most of the students said was the longest and highest quality fireworks show they could remember.  

Ladysmith is also where Erin and I attend church services on Sunday mornings.  We were quite surprised this past Sunday to see the previously dry road we took to church looking like this on the way back.

 While this truck seemed particularly brave I was not and went back to find a detour.  You can see from this shot that the entire road is submerged with only the white line marking the shoulder being visible.

Last of all today is the end of No-Shave November (being the last day of November).  There have been a large number of moustaches floating around here at camp and I added to their numbers if only for a day or two.  When asked if they would be keeping their moustaches for December as well some were torn while others like Trevor (a.k.a. "Mom") are looking forward to getting rid of their creepy moustaches.

Erin is also very excited to see this moustache go away, although I can't understand why?
