The bells are from the church nearest us l’Église très-saint-nom-de-Jésus. They ring every day at 12:01 and 6:01.
We had a nice, big snowfall yesterday — close to 8 inches.
Gary usually walks to meet me after I finish exercise class. It’s a 4k (2.50 mile) round-trip walk. For this “Montreal Minute” I followed him through our “arrondissement” as we headed home through the snow.
It is a pleasure to walk when it’s snowing as long as you have the right clothes and shoes!
The music is a synth piece I wrote for a Mixed Company show. The show was “Mixed Reviews”. The tune title is “Star Material”.
Snow fell on Monday, November 21, 2016 here in Montreal — the first snowfall of the season. For this Montreal minute, I take you along on my walk, in that snow, through the streets of our arrondissement (district) “Rosemont-La Petite Patrie” to my exercise class at the local “Energie-Cardio”.
I love walking in the snowy weather. The trick is to dress right. As the old Scandinavian saying goes: There’s no bad weather, only bad clothes.
A quick search on the web and I found this fun bit of language info.
In Swedish/Norwegian the word for “weather” rhymes with the word for “clothes”.
Swedish: Det finns inget dåligt väder, bara dåliga kläder
Norwegian: Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlige klær
On dit en français, «Il n’y a pas de mauvais temps, juste des mauvais vêtements. »
