Strength vs. Thickness

Posted on Wed, Feb 16, 2011 at 11:02 AM

Tuesday, February 15th. Looking to hit the lakes to play some hockey with my son, who's on break from school for two weeks (missed school time... that's a whole other bitch just waiting to be told). Check the HRM website to make sure the lakes in Dartmouth are safe to skate on. Uhhhhh, what the fuck? Last updated January 24th? Three weeks ago? I do believe that conditions must have changed somewhat in that time. Meanwhile, Halifax and Cole Harbour were last checked February 14, and Bedford on February 7). How in the name of sweet fuck can the HRM website not provide up-to-date information on ice conditions within HRM, not just Halifax and Cole Harbour? We hear CONSTANTLY from all levels of government the benefits of physical activity. It's all the more enjoyable when joined by our children. Only it's not possible when we're not supposed to venture out on the lakes if they're not 21 cm thick. ARE THEY? —Rob
