Some Days Are Diamonds

There are also days when it seems the lumber market is like a large basket called on to accommodate unpredictable challenges.

Somebody recently reminded us that nobody rings a bell at the top or the bottom of the market. There may not always be obvious signposts to guide market behavior, or ready solutions to unforeseen challenges that tend to surface more frequently in tough markets.

I was struck by this label affixed to an ashtray at the entrance of a neighboring condo tower in Yaletown yesterday, that served as stark reminder that, even warning labels don’t necessarily preclude having to deal with unwanted stuff.
