Dreary Day in the Desert

For those of you suffering through the recent horrible weather in Alberta/B.C. - this might cheer you up.

This is the view from our living room in the motorhome. It's raining and dreary and 13 degrees celsius.

We've been sitting here all day waiting for word from our banks regarding the loss of our wire transfer. Nothing to report yet.

Recently I placed online orders with Walmart, Best Buy and Amazon.com. I was easily able to track our orders - virtually every step that they took along the way - from order placement to shipping with Fedex/UPS, to either a local storefront or to our mailbox. On the other hand, something critical like a wire transfer appears to be 'untraceable', disappearing into a black hole, with no one able to say with any certainty where it was/is in the system. Very sad statement of the banking industry!
