Thursday morning temperatures at the Edmonton Blatchford station measured -0.3 C with 9 km/h winds out of the west contributing to a -3 wind chill.Why, wind? Why? Why must you ruin everything? Why must you turn an otherwise delightful day into an all-out s–tstorm? Did someone do something to you, wind? Were you not hugged enough as a child? Were you hugged too much as a child? At what point in your life did you decide to be an absolute menace to everyone and everything? Oh sure you can a fly a kite on a windy day, but who actually does that these days? Oh wait…
With wind blowing it made for great kite flying day for a group of students having their phys ed day out at Hawrelak Park in Edmonton, April 24, 2019.
