Winter Is Coming

'Showers turning to snow flurries in the evening, gusty winds with blowing snow, accumulation 2 cm.' Thus last night's forecast for today, and me with acupuncture down Spadina after work. One can always take the Spadina streetcar down, but the Spadina car has the new-fangled system that won't accommodate cash fares at all.

However. Just at this moment, the over-weening and over-priced Shoppers Drug Mart has a sweetheart deal on with the TTC. You can buy Presto cards (our version of the Oyster card) at certain Shoppers outlets, instead of having to subway to various (inconvenient) locations; and one of those is a fast bike ride in the direction of my old acupuncture studio. Deal of the week is pay $50, get $60 worth of rides. Well, and pay $6 for the card itself, so the savings aren't all that. But now I have a card that will get me up and down Spadina, and to that pesky only-Presto entrance near my aunt's.

And then I biked down to acupuncture in the spitting rain, and home in the rain become snow flurries. However. Winter is still coming, and I am still prepared, so nah.
