From -28C to 4C in 24 hours. Crazy chinook winds, hopefully it melts all of this 30cms of snow by the end of the week!

Haha, it's fun isn't it? I lived in Calgary for a few years and chinooks were weird sometimes. You'd walk outside in shorts and 10 hours later it's snowing.

Turn on That's Hockey from the HHOF, and who's on? Tie Domi.

They must be getting desperate if they are inducting him

Sorry garret9

Just went and read some GDT and PGT from games about a year ago to this date. .. Fun to see where we were at and what we were talking about.

Still hoping for a December 1st start date, though it seems time is ticking.

I'm sure that will help promote more people to head downtown. Finding parking is already poor enough as is.

Anyone read lawless's "new cba good for winnipeg" article today? He makes a lot of assumptions/fear mongers a fair bit, more then usual even for him.

Had the Blue Bomber burger at Applebees tonight. Delicious, with consequences.

Basically a big double cheese burger with bacon.

Look on the bright side: you did the right thing, and only have to be concerned about a dead battery and missing school.

Hey man, better a dead battery than a dead person.

I lost one of my best friends 17 years ago in a drunk driving accident. He was plastered after a xmas party and hit a tree coming off the Disraeli bridge. Ripped his Mustang right in half and him just about with it.

Another buddy of mine got hit with a DUI a few years ago. Also hit a tree. Totaled his Jeep, cops came by and put him in jail. Had to pay for Jeep (on lease) lawyers, counselling, etc. License suspended for a year. I had to drive him around places. Worse he said was the humiliation and embarrassment. He said it's hard to get women when you have no car and can't drive because of a DUI. All said, a $20 cab ride from the bar ends up being a lot cheaper than said depression, inconvenience, and $40k in costs from a dui accident! Now he looks back and says he's pretty thankful he didn't kill someone, because although all of that other stuff is over with, he doesn't think he could have lived with the knowledge of having killed someone.

As for the battery - keep a charger in the trunk! You might be late but give it an hour or so and it might start up.

I'm ok with this, most cities have those parking hours.

Our parking rates are still ridiculously low compared to nation-wide rates.
