I was in the city of Thunder Bay last week for training, and this was the picture. An ice storm, that lasted most of the week. The "Thank You" sign is from Starbucks, and you're welcome. This is the reality - police work, family, and writing every chance I can steal (stealing time for something I love, is acceptable, unlike stealing a canoe, not acceptable - since one person's common sense is not necessarily that of another, I should point that out).
This was my backyard this morning (May 2, 2017), snow. That's right, temperature of -1. Even those poor birds are asking, WTF? This is the reality of living on the north shore of one of the largest, and coldest, freshwater lakes in the world. No spring.
That's the lecture. Done. Take care of yourself so that you can take care of others!
