Downtown Charlottetown Status Update

As of 3:30 p.m. today (Friday, Feb. 20, 2004), downtown Charlottetown is still pretty closed down, post-blizzard.

Tim Horton’s on Kent St. has been open all day, and there’s a steady from of customers. Timothy’s and the Formosa Tea House are both closed.

All of the stores in the Confederation Court Mall are closed for the day, with the exception of Shoppers Drug Mart and Nature’s Harvest (although Nature’s Harvest might close early: I was their first customer in a couple of hours).

There appears to be at least one lane open on most of the streets downtown, although there are plenty of huge snowbanks all over the place, and the sidewalks are hard to navigate.

Here’s Kent Street, looking west from the pedway:

Some Halifax pictures. Has anyone put together a collection of Juan-Two picture links?

Ah, it’ll all melt eventually — then we’ll be into mosquito season and cursing West Nile virus & the pathetic music choices of our neighbours during their backyard barbeques.

I’d take snowfalls like this anyday… reminds me of the really big ones from the 80’s…. Anyone remember the 140 cm (in 24 hours) from Feb. 1992? Shut the Island down for 5 days — the only thing running was Marine Atlantic, and that was only if you could survive the drive down to Borden.

Now where are my cross-country skis?….
