It hadn’t come to my mind immediately, but we are facing a crisis unique in the city’s history: our coffee addiction is seriously jeopardized! In today’s update on the GVRD drinking water situation, the online article of the Province newspaper commits twenty per cent of its length to the impact of the water restrictions on the coffee business. Clearly, a most critical issue. ;-)

The good news, for others, is that the advisory has been lifted for all areas except Vancouver, Burnaby, North Vancouver and some areas of the Island. And as for us, well, with more rain expected all week-end, we’re just doing our best…

And I said Lord, oh Lord, you’ve got to win
The water’s down and the night is riding in
That storm is still on time, oh my coffee’s on the line
Oh Lord, you’ve got to win
