Much *dust* these days, and little tsunamis of garbage as well, giving the whole place some kind of end-of-the-earth feel. Mad Max would have a ball. Meanwhile, the rest of us pull up our hoods and turn our backs when the big trucks go thundering by.

They've put the Lasalle Causeway inside some kind of industrial blanket of tarp, and plenty of guys in hazmat-type suits are about, standing there with their arms hanging by their sides, and when you go through the improvised walkway there is often that heavy chemical smell, from something undoubtedly with an "x" in its name, right in the middle, and you look down at the water and feel like you're standing at the edge of an immense vat of glue.

I've spent the entire winter walking. It's 3.3 kilometres each way, 6.6 kms per day. Often I run errands on the way home though, so let's just say 7 kms. Since November 1st, that's over 500 kms. I wore sneakers the whole time and, just to give you an idea how dry it's been, I only came away with wet socks on three occasions.

All of which leads me to believe that, at some point this March or April, it's just going to pour.


  1. This sounds like a scary movie - not sure if I like where it's going...

  2. That's some impressive walking...-and anyway, what if it stays dry this year? All sorts of funny things happened last year and this year too- life is now unpredictable- hmmm-
    good to walk with the flow I suppose-
