Rain: saviour or threat??

On Tuesday morning of this week, we finally got a decent rain, actually, we had a thunderstorm. For those of you who have lived here for a number of years, you will know that we do not commonly get thunderstorms – rain yes, but not thunder and lightning. Fun fact: thunder is a sound created by lightning – so if you hear thunder, lightning is present even if you do not see it. What this means for us, is that when we get a long-awaited rain, it comes with lightning and the threat of fire. As a result of Tuesday morning’s storm, a small fire was started on Whistler Mountain (quickly extinguished) which demonstrates how vulnerable we are. So as much as we hope for rain, to dampen and cool our environment, it comes with the threat of fire; which is what we were hoping to mitigate with the rain. As the saying goes – be careful of what you wish for. We have been so very fortunate here in Whistler for many summers; where yes, we get inundated with smoke, but we have not had an impactful fire. But as we know, the threat of fire is real and we should all take the threat seriously. A great resource we have here in BC is Fire Smart, which has a site I highly recommend you visit if you have a property and wish to know how best to protect it.

Meanwhile, at Ruby Tuesday, we have made room for new fall boots by putting our summer footwear on sale! All our summer sandals and footwear are now on sale at 25% off. New in footwear are 3 great styles by Miz Mooz – Lizette/brown, Hamden/black, and Brexton/black – all of these are true to the known Miz Mooz comfort and style. Also new is the Leap crossbody bag from Matt & Nat; a versatile small bag that can be worn across the body, or you can remove the strap and use it as a clutch. Lastly, the collection from Marmalade Designs has been selling extremely well; the designs are adorable and an easy addition to your everyday style.

Rain or shine we are open this week in Whistler every day from 10 am - 8 pm. You can also shop all of our new arrivals, jewellery, handbags, footwear, gifts, sales, and more on our website anytime!
