Sometimes this time of year the weather rarely changes. You notice most days we hovered just below freezing with overcast skies. The air temperature is moderated by the large body of water so close by. We had a couple of good snow squalls this week (see the Wednesday pictures below), but not a lot of accumulation.
Despite it being March break the beach was surprisingly empty probably because the winds made it feel colder than it was. Lots of families spending time at their summer homes on Shore Lane.
Another winter week walking down Wasaga Beach. This week, my daily walks were interrupted by a short trip to New York City. Hope you enjoy the pictures and story below.
Turns out the location of my meeting was right at Trump Tower on Madison Ave near Central Park. I couldn’t resist taking thirty minutes over lunch to wander over the Trump Tower and take a few pictures. Lots of security as you can imagine.
I’ll spare you the details, but with the snow storm, travel turned out to be a nightmare on Wednesday. Long story short, I hung out at La Guardia because my flight to Toronto was still looking good. Unfortunately, around 6:00 PM the inbound flight from Toronto after circling La Guardia for 20 minutes was forced to turn around and return to Toronto. Air Canada cancelled all flights after this, and I joined the mad scramble to find a hotel and re-book flights all to familiar to business travelers. Air Canada made exactly the right call btw – looking out from the terminal, it was clearly not safe to land in my opinion. Lots of people were pissed off, but “kudos” to Air Canada. Traveling in the winter is a pain, but there is something to be said for arriving alive.
