Just a little chilly

FTLComm - Tisdale - Wednesday, January 22, 2003

Today is a perfectly normal mid to late January day for this part of Saskatchewan. It was -28ºC a year ago today and tomorrow a year ago it was -34ºC. The temperature today has remained at or just below -30º but fortunately the wind has been extremely polite.

The picture at the top of this page shows steam from a gas furnace drifting out through the trees as the wind was less than three miles per hour which is hardly significant.

The picture above I find highly unsettling as it chronicles the events of the morning up to 11:30 across the street South of the bank of Montreal. A walker and the errant track of a truck that had rumbled over the sidewalk.

A mother and child were the occupants of this van with a slack tire. She had not seen the problem and was about to drive away when I alerted her to the missing air.

Below the hazy from running vehicles fills this street down to the doctor and dentists offices.
