Thunder Bay – Tuesday

Mentioned this before.  The truck does not fit in this parking space.  Its too large and hides the stop sign from vehicles approaching the intersection.  The front end is also extremely close to the crosswalk.

This truck being parked in this location makes the intersection dangerous for bot drivers and pedestrians.  There is no reason to park this vehicle here.

View of vehicle approaching intersection. Stop sign in not visible.

Always impressive when curb shutoff valves pop-up….especially when they are located in driveways.  Clearing snow from the driveway with this sticking up must be fun and games.

Still working on the front of the Delta by Marriott waterfront hotel.  When is it going to open up?  Your guess is as good as mine.  Before May?

Warm weather increases the stench of old urine.  Hurray!

    I remember looking at Marriott’s booking site last Autumn, and seeing you could book the hotel, starting in mid February, of this year.

    I have not checked recently, but I wonder what the current ‘new’ date is….

    What you have to understand is that a hotel like the Marriott is likely six or seven different companies in partnership.

    Marriott is the franchiser, who handles the booking, marketing etc. The physical structure is likely owned by a 2nd company. The staffing is contracted by a 3rd, the housekeeping a 4th, the restaurants/food services 5th and 6th, etc.

    Everyone may have a ‘Marriott’ badge on their chest, but they all don’t work for the company.

    There might be a problem with one of the partners not being ready, or something else that would not be obvious to an outsider..
