According to Sunday’s Chronicle Journal headline, Thunder Bay is digging out from a giant storm. (Headline article not available on their website so I created what I believe the front page might look like).
Well, I’ve lived through many snow storms and I can honestly say that they do get a lot worse than what we just had. Much worse. So what term do you use to describe storms that are larger than giant? Not sure.
Anyway, just how giant was this latest storm? It was so strong a storm that the libraries were actually closed. Yes, the storm was so strong, that people could not read. I assume that letters were blowing off the pages of books and magazines? What else could it be?
Libraries were closed due to the giant storm but garbage collection continued. Garbage collection does have the advantage of taking place out doors while library related activities take place indoors. You see? If the garbage was being collected inside of libraries, then those workers would have been sent home as well. Too bad for the outdoor workers.
All public libraries were closed at 1 p.m.
City services and facilities not affected by the storm, included: City hall and administration offices, garbage collection, snow plowing, sanding and salting of city streets; and public swimming and general use at the Canada Games Complex. – Chronicle Journal April 20, 2013
Yes. That is how advanced the pussification of Thunder Bay is today. Libraries were closed because of the so-called giant storm but garbage collection, an outdoor activity that takes place on the deadly storm ravaged streets of Thunder Bay, still went on?
PS – Any rumour about City Admin calling up Queens Park and asking the city to be declared a disaster area because of the 30 cm of snow dumped on our unsuspecting community over a 24 hour period is completely and utterly not true.
