You wouldn’t know it now but back in the heyday of the 1920’s Winnipeg, the Chicago of the North, was a hotbed of spiritual investigation.

I guess that this past weekend has given a great deal of my readers a blanket of snow to deal with. Here in Winnipeg we had a little snowstorm, only about 20 centimetres. Nothing compared to what happened on the East Coast of North America. From what I understand some parts got upwards of 70 centimetres of the white stuff.
For the record, amounts like that would even paralyse Winnipeg for a day or so. Well… ahem.. without further adieu. More snow!!!
Leaving The Forks Market I just had to take a picture of the tower, the Canadian flag flying proudly in the winter wind.
