downtown construction

By: bawlf , 1:58 PM GMT on November 08, 2013

-1.9 C (28.56 F) feels like -2 C at 6:47 hrs. Sunrise today is at 7:49 with a sunset at 4:49 PM. Overcast with a chance of snow and rain showers. High of 1C with a windchill as low as -5C. Breezy. Winds from the NW at 15 to 20 km/h. Chance of snow 40%.

Carlos had a regressive moment last night. We were walking out of Country Squire and I had felt it was a bit chilly; so, I was raising the collar on my sweater and jacket. In order to do this I had removed my gloves and had both Carlos' and Simba's leash in one hand. Carlos hates the colour black on humans and animals. Just then a neighbour lady wearing a black trench coat walking a large black labrador came around the entrance corner. Carlos hates to be surprised. He tore off to attack the lab and Simba took off barking as well. I got a leash burn on my hands from Simba's leash and had to aggressively yank Carlos back, like reeling in a 30 lb. salmon. The neighbour lady just smiled and walked by, Carlos does have a reputation. Always extremely annoying when this happens.

Went to Audrey's Books on Jasper (Edmonton's main downtown avenue) yesterday at noon hour. Had to pick up a book I ordered. I go downtown about every couple of months. I was amazed at the degree of change since the last time. The Pearl, soon to be Edmonton's tallest condo tower, is coming along quite quickly and promises to be an attractive, formidable building. I don't know if I would sit around having a bar-b-que on some of the balconies on the higher floors.
