City Council will hold an emergency meeting to decide whether to demolish the Vic High phallic snow sculpture or employ City crews to construct an accompanying yonic structure in the interests of equality.

destroying seems harsh.  can't they do some type removal to a more appropriate place?  or put it in cold storage near jam.

Has the City Family spoken yet on the matter?

In the interim it will be secreted off to a secret freezer while the appropriate actions are contemplated.

Spotted (dick) in Fernwood today. NB: it's about 15' tall.


The doctor had to prescribe a cream when mine had that.

Oak Bay city hall already has half the statue maybe they’d like the complete piece.

Victoria covered in snow...

 

Here's a little, err, BIG, pano I made of Victoria covered in snow.

 

Best viewed in flickr by clicking on the download icon and then "view all sizes".   Then click on the original 11,831 x 3208 image and pan around.  The pano was made from three pics and stitched together using Microsoft's free ICE software.

Nice, Gary!  

 

Have you thought about doing a 'Gigapixel' image of Victoria, or something close?

That would require a special pan/tilt head.  Some, like the GigaPan Epic models just do panoramas and can only be controlled from the unit.  I'd be looking at a more flexible head that can also do time lapse and can be controlled remotely - from inside the condo, brr.

IT'S SNOW JOKE: Victoria offered help from online porn site

 

https://torontosun.c...nline-porn-site

 

 

more national headlines.

 

 

 

Hughes outlined his proposal to the people of Victoria in a letter to Mayor Lisa Helps, in which he also offered to purchase a snow plow for the city.

 

 

By Thursday evening, Hughes said he’s received no response from the mayor, who likewise didn’t respond to the Sun’s request for an interview.

I suspect Mr. Hughes caught wind of the mayor’s letter to Venezuela?
