We were eight hours and counting into a gnarly drive from Nelson to Pemberton – extreme weather warnings were issuing up and down the province. Freezing rain dominated the forecast. Suddenly the radio crackled with familiar voices – CBC’s On the Coast broadcasting live from the Whistler Brewhouse, with Trish Jamieson playing her original tunes, including my personal favourite, Dirt on My Carrots, a song she composed specifically for a movie I wrote in 2006 about Slow Food Cycle Sunday called Eating Myself Local. So amazing to hear her throwing props to Pemby farmers from the heart of a Whistler apres! Trish, you killed it. Thanks for singing me home.
