MV Federal Champlain Don’t see any ships out there. Leased Lot #3 so far. Grinding the concrete steps smooth.   Notice the workers are wearing masks. People who were downwind from this operation were not. Went looking for ice. I think this sign needs to be replaced. Nothing improves waterfront property like a large pile of […]

Parking lot is glare ice.  I would not want to be one of those high-roller hotel customers dragging his/her suitcase to his/her car walking on this surface. Of course this is Thunder Bay. This winter, we will get to see who maintains the hotel parking lot.  Who is going to plow the snow. We’ve got […]

I guess all of the damage caused to benches last winter during snow removal made our high salaried residents of City Hall think this to be a prudent exercise.  That or someone stole the bench.  Could be that as well.

Trash in context Not sure where the other needles went but there is still one floating in the Pool 6 pond. The Blue Morph Snow Geese are still hanging around. I wonder if these roses are frozen?  Will they stay this colour until spring?   Leased Lot #3 so far. Tables and benches being added […]

Trash in context.  Laker beer.  Looks like this brand has supplanted Budweiser as the beer of choice of Thunder Bay’s street urchins.  I see Laker cans all over the place.
