January 12, 2008

The sun is still warm enough to melt some things, like thin snow on top of dark pavement, but winter has returned.

The internal path had been plowed around Centrepointe Park but it wasn't scraped enough to prevent the freezing of slush into ice and so walking is dicey on some parts of the path. You have to tiptoe around the edges of the path where there is crunchy snow which creates traction. I didn't walk back through the park. But it was very nice to see the sun (it has been so grey lately) even if it does come with colder temperatures.

The main paths with the yellow painted stripe down the centre (what I call the NCC paths) are bare and dry except for this one persistently flooded spot behind the bus station. I think the only way to fix it is to dig it all up, raise the height of the path and then re-pave it. Putting some drainage tiles leading away from the path under the grass would be good too.

Hi Julie,

Just stopped by to say hello and make sure you are okay. We wanted to thank you for blogging on behalf of Rockwell and for being a part of DogsWithBlogs. Always remember that you are part of the DWB family - and should the pitter patter of paws grace your home again, we hope you will start a new blog so we can all share your adventures.

Luv your ol pal,
Chucksie Bux

Thanks a lot Charlie! For a nice surprise, go check out the last two comments at the last entry at Rockwell's blog! There is definitely another dog in our future - we just don't know when yet. And I am sure I will blog about it. In the meantime, I watch the Dog Whisperer and learn a lot and keep up with Jenny's blog and every day, get a fix of Charlie the coyote.
