Thunder Bay – Wednesday

I wonder how many disposable beverage cups are used in this city?  How many end up lying on the street/sidewalk/park? Streets get plowed over and over again while sidewalks might get cleared once…maybe twice in the downtown core. Getting close to the Chronicle Journal compond Not saying that this stuff came from the CJ property, […]

Thunder Bay – Tuesday

Had to wait for this train to go by.   Having your $71 million PLUS premier tourist destination across the railway tracks is a pain. Still there. Hasn’t moved for weeks.  Needs to be towed. Not a great day for outdoor photography.  I must have a hundred photos of this.  Trying to make it look interesting.  […]

Thunder Bay – Monday

This icicle would kill you if it fell on you. A Robin’s cup. A rare sighting. Still there. The future site of the proposed publicly funded and privately run $33 million (probably closer to $40 million) art gallery is being used as a snow dump. This would be a problem had the art gallery supporters […]

Took a photo of this yesterday.  I cleaned the lens better and took the photo again.  The sun is much cleaner. Still a few months before these houses are occupied. I also took photos of this fence yesterday.  Took photos again today with a cleaner lens. A gin cooler.   Not Olympic rings but maybe […]

Thunder Bay – Friday

The joy of on-street parking.  Grader has to plow around parked car.  Car leaves.   Leaves road covered in snow behind.  Hurrah! Shopping cart under there. The insanity of having a snowbank between sidewalk and street.  Stupid road design. All of the snow should be pushed to the other side of the sidewalk.  Away from the […]

Thunder Bay – Thursday

Sidewalk plow cleared the blockage caused by the Fire Department. Sooo you can now walk along the sidewalk without having to climb a mountain of snow…until the next time the Fire Station parking lot is cleared of snow.  That should be tomorrow. As far as this sidewalk has been cleared. This car, which it seems […]

Thunder Bay – Wednesday

Going to get worse Murder Capital of Canada 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017 and probably 2018, always high on the list of most dangerous, most violent cities in Canada, and hotbed of racism….even the Thunder Bay Public Library is racist.  Who would want to move here? Better get another shovel.  More snow is on the way. […]
