The End of the World is Nigh! by Alicia Wanless – Spencerville Ontario – May 9, 2011

Spencerville ON – Many of our friends thought we were a bit off when we decided to move out to Spencerville. While it’s only an hour from Ottawa (that’s about the same amount of time it was taking us to commute when living in Toronto), to some it seemed the ends of the earth.

People have this misconception that life in the countryside is dull – that nothing ever happens out here. We, of course, beg to differ. After all, where else can you see not just one, but three large vehicles bearing messages that the end of the world is coming?

While passing through the town last Thursday, a friend and I encountered the motorized harbingers of doom at Drummond’s Gas Bar.

We were so stunned, we had to go back and get these shots.

I guess we should be grateful that they chose to stop in Spencerville and spread the word.

The end of the world is pretty monumental. Surely we wouldn’t want to be caught off guard.

Of course, given the damage caused by the numerous beavers living around Spencerville (and particularly on Crowder Road), I’d say they’re getting a head start on global destruction.

Who would have thought our area would suffer death by damming and a slow overwhelming of swamp growth?

Alicia Wanless is the co-owner of Crowder House – at once a heritage home in restoration and a local business grow op.

She blogs about both.

  1. We all know the story of Noah, careful not to be too glib and keep an open mind. Are you prepared for a natural disaster? It can happen to any one, any where including your little corner of the world. All the best.
