I'm on the 12th floor and have a window in my office and watching the birds trying to fly is pretty funny. They flutter there wings a lot but are not moving at all. This one bird kept at it for a good couple minutes and wasn't geting anywhere. I'm surprised it didn't just fall down dead from exhaustion.
I got to walk home from class tonight and pretend I was in Siberia or somewhere much more exciting than Peterborough while dodging falling branches. It was soo blowy and snowy and the sky was a funny colour. Very refreshing.
fuck me it was cold yesterday... that wind was seriously biting. i was out on the lake yesterday (inner harbour thank god!) for an hour or so and i thought my face was gonna crack and crumble to pieces. brrrrrrrr.
No one has experienced this wind unless you have had to get off the subway at queens park and tried to walk west on college. Yesterday I witnessed two kids crying because the wind was so crazy and they couldnt walk to keep up with their parents. Today I saw a lady have to get off her bike because the wind was so strong she couldnt ride.
I blame it all on that stupidly designed Ontario Power Generation building.
