Perhaps Kirsten Miskelly after being involved with environmental issues should be reminded of the earth-related adage: “The more mud you throw, the more ground you lose.”
In her Oct. 9 letter, the mud was flying through the air at lightning speed by the shovelful. (Saanich residents are still cleaning off the mud splatters, what a mess.) No doubt it will be some time before all that mud is cleaned up and the inevitable resultant dust finally settles down. But hey, look at the bright side – all that rich loam, layers of it – then watch those Garry oak ‘puppies’ grow. Big time.
