Some things I've noticed lately here in the Okanagan: All the ski hills closed last week. Golf courses delaying their openings. Most non essential services closed. Fair number of bikes out... most folks ride locally in the valleys from April to Nov. inclusive anyway. Gas is below $1.00 a litre so I've seen pickup truck pans stogged tight with five gallon gas cans. Lot of 'snowbirds' are back earlier than usual. According to CBC radio this AM there's a run on guns and ammo for fear of a "...possible shortfall next hunting season." And Albertans have been asking gun shops "How much buckshot can you get me?" No campgrounds open that I've seen but all the municipal and regional day parks are closed.
