Late tip yesterday!

I posted the tip a bit later than usual yesterday because of a quite unusual situation. I am currently visiting Vancouver and I went to hike the mountains near Whistler yesterday. On the way back, the traffic stopped abruptly. I stayed in the car a while, thinking it was only construction work. After about half an hour, seeing that everyone was getting out of their car, eating and chatting, I got out and walked to the front of the line. What was happening was only about ten cars ahead of me. I often saw "falling rocks" signs, but I never thought it actually happened. Check it out:

This was at the beginning. A lot more rock came down after that! All in all, I was stuck for about four hours. Both my laptop and my phone ran out of power. It was quite an adventure!

I also thought the picture was quite impressive. To be honest, I had never seen this.

I'm glad your adventure didn't have you 11 cars up from where you were when this happened!

Good you're safe and thanks so much for all the Mac Tips. Really appreciate them.

Neat stuff man! Glad you survived, otherwise I would remain a stupid new mac user for the rest of my life. With your site I am learning more and more everyday!

As one who has been greatly helped by your postings - think of us metaphorically looking over your shoulder - I wish I could draw a cartoon of you sitting with your laptop while waiting for the rockfall to be cleared and a big B.C. bear appearing, or should I say, peering over your shoulder looking for a tip!
