Montreal can suck

I had to walk over from my hotel to the conference hotel (about 5 blocks) like every other day.  I looked out the window this morning and saw that it was raining, but I wasn’t prepared for the wind.  It was, well, staggering.  This morning was the first time I’ve ever seen an umbrella, sans operator, moving down the middle of a street faster than traffic.  I also was shocked to see that every trash bin on the sidewalk had one or two umbrellas stuffed in them.

I’m definitely glad to be indoors today.
