Happy New Year! Welcome 2018...

ELLA WHEELER WILCOX, “THE YEAR” (1910)
What can be said in New Year rhymes, That’s not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go, We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light, We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings, We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed, We wreathe our brides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear, And that’s the burden of the year.




Another year and another set of a whole new challenges and goals will come but one thing you don’t have to change is the formula of hard work to get the best results. 
Keep working hard and persevere to achieve your desired success. 

ShipMyRide team wishes you a
Happy New Year!

Canada’s top 10 weather stories 2017

We can find the top ten weather stories of 2017 in Canada on the Government of Canada website. There was rain, ice, fire and floods, this year was full of surprises on the weather. Take a look! 1. British Columbia’s longest and most destructive wildfire season In 2017, across the southern British Columbia (BC) interior, an extraordinary weather change occurred – the region’s wettest spring was followed by its driest summer ever. The result was the longest, most disastrous wildfire season in the province’s history. A growing snowpack and heavy rains in May kept BC wildfire staff busier helping with flood relief than firefighting. But excessive spring rains mixed with mild temperatures helped vegetation growth that quickly turned into kindling when a hot and dry start to summer didn’t let up. Occasionally, low pressure systems brought gusty, erratic winds, dry lightning and low humidity but no long, sustained soaking rains to quell the inevitable flames. Aggressive wildfires forced 50,…
