As the weather warmed up today to a balmy -14C and I needed to escape from the somewhat insalubrious surroundings that is my current abode, I took a walk along the Lachine Canal and into the city.
Surprisingly, it was a lot easier to walk along the canal path than on the pavements, which, I gather from television news, have not been cleared adequately of snow and ice and are consequently treacherous to pedestrians.
It is hard to imagine that just a few short months ago, Robyn and I rode bikes all the way along to the end of the canal. There weren’t too many people doing so today!
