So how is it a day when it’s supposedly only 21 or 22 C can feel as hot as a day when it’s supposedly 28?
Oh well, at least we’re not like Calgary, where they got some snow on the weekend.
Shall we amble?
Took my uncle out to the airport early Monday morning for his flight back to Regina. On the way home, coming down Highway 97, there were a couple of rows of pylons where they were doing road construction.
Not to my surprise, a number of the pylons had been knocked over. If the direction they were laying was any indication, though, every one of them had been hit by a vehicle coming from the airport end towards the city. Weird.
I don’t know if I like the idea of us in Prince George already hitting the upper-20s some days at the beginning of June. After all, in another month, I’m headed south to Merritt for the Mountain Music Festival.
I always enjoy the music and the people, but the heat down there can be quite ugly. Add to that past problems with kidney stones, and it’s no wonder I spend most of time in the media area, under shelter.
I’ve gotten into the habit of following the BBC text commentary on sporting events. Their reporters almost always bring a touch of humour to what they’re writing about, and manage to keep the reader informed.
I just realized how scary it was that I read this, from the World Twenty20 cricket championships in England: “Mendis to bowl his last over. Hussey heaves him to square leg for two before pushing a trotted single through the covers. Johnson late-cuts a four through third man before off-driving a single to long-off. Hussey heaves a single to mid-wicket, and Mendis finishes with figures of 3-20.”
The scary thing is, I have seen very little cricket in my life, but I was able to follow the basics of what happened in this over without having to look it up. Maybe I’m following too much of the coverage.
Very happy to see the number of parking lots with newly painted parking lines. Makes it a lot easier (and safe) to place your vehicle in the correct spot.
One lot which could use new lines is the one behind the Four Seasons Swimming Pool downtown. I was there on Monday morning and I’m pretty sure no two of the people in my line of parked cars were using the same lines (or lack of same).
If you want a spectacular view of the Prince George valley, head up to UNBC and go to the Centennial Gazebo, in between parking lots A and B.
Great view of the city and surrounding areas and, if you turn around, it’s a very nice view of the university itself, which is what it’s supposed to be, since it’s on the view axis of UNBC.
