Yesterday was Viola Desmond Day, or officially "Heritage Day" in Nova Scotia. We took the opportunity to re-visit the Maritime Museum... and everything was just as we remembered it the first time we went 6 years ago. It was kinda strange being able to see things just as they were before... touching the same coil of rope, photographing the same sail but with a different angle and new perspective.
Most of us are hunkered indoors for the biggest storm of the season so far. It's not so much the snow that is the problem anymore but the rain... so much flooding. But, soon it will be March!
So, tomorrow could have been the deadliest day in Halifax since the explosion. Apparently some youngsters were plotting a mass shooting in a public space. After they killed a bunch of innocent people they would turn their guns on themselves. Luckily, the Halifax Regional Police and the RCMP intercepted this plot based on a tip.
The only person to lose their life was a 19 year male that was a key member of the plot. These are scary times we live in. I don't think that I have ever lived my life in fear of a mass killing... not until recently. Stay vigilant. Hopefully these events will burst our safety bubble and remind us that this is a dangerous world that we live in. People think bad things and are more than willing to do bad things.
Thank you Halifax Regional Police, and the RCMP for keeping us safe. Up until now we were more concerned with where the snow is going to go...
The winter storms are now rolling in one after the next. But, that's okay because February is a shorter month and Spring starts in March. Go ahead winter, storm away.
This was our first snow day of 2015. Although it was relatively weak & mild in comparison to anything we experience last January. All in all it was nice to snuggle in at home and enjoy each other's company. It was looking like a snowless winter this year... and this snow probably won't last long. It has already turned into freezing rain pattering on our windowsills.
