Thunder Bay – Tuesday

In case you forgot about this event, the poster is still up Trash in context Windy out there. There was a ship out there.   It was a cargo barge and the pusher tug MV JOYCE L. VAN ENKEVORT?  Have no idea why it was there.  Maybe to avoid some bad conditions out on the lake? […]

Thunder Bay – Monday

Tough walking. Cars win. Pedestrians lose. How hard would it be for the parking lot plow jockey to grab a shovel and clear the snow the plowing operation left on the sidewalk? Cars win. Pedestrians lose. Cars win. Pedestrians lose. Rock drilling taking place across the street from St Joseph’s Hospital Cars win. Pedestrians lose. […]

The World – Where Are The Protests?

PEPE ESCOBAR: US Kick Starts Raging ’20s Declaring War on Iran It does not matter where the green light for the U.S. targeted assassination in Baghdad of Quds Force commander Major General Qassem Soleimani and the Hashd al-Shaabi second-in-command Abu Madhi al-Muhandis came from.

Thunder Bay – Saturday

Something you don’t see everyday Private plow jockey could have got out of the truck, grabbed a shovel and cleared this small windrow away.  Instead, life has been made a little more difficult for the mobility challenged. Looks like the few parking meters that are left have been welded to the post. Of course, then […]

Thunder Bay - Friday

Thunder Bay – Friday

Sometimes I wonder why the City of Thunder Bay bothers plowing the sidewalks after a snowstorm. After the driveway has been cleared of snow, the sidewalk is now impassable for many pedestrians.  Its obvious. I think the pills were Methylphenidate. Amazing how many empty pill containers I see around this city. Lots of these disposable […]

Thunder Bay – Thursday

Not the best day for photography. Overcast produces a flat landscape. No shadows, no definition. You still have to try.  You just never know. More examples of what pedestrians are up against when it comes to sidewalks after a snowfall. Snow Bunting.  This one seems to be hanging around the same area.  Maybe it has […]

Thunder Bay - Wednesday - First Day Of 2020

Thunder Bay – Wednesday – First Day Of 2020

Time to start the New Year off complaining about something.  A fresh snowfall produces two of my favourite targets: on street parking and pushing snow back onto a sidewalk just cleared of snow. I still maintain that owners of vehicles that park on streets that are not covered by calendar parking should be responsible for […]
