Last week, Mother Nature made her annual demonstration of who’s really in charge of our fair city: her. At least during the winter time. Movement through Edmonton was difficult earlier last week because of an unreal amount of snow that fell — making the city simultaneously beautiful and treacherous. But the weather sure didn’t stop people from speaking their minds!
This week’s blog watch is a delightful mixed bag, and we’ll get right to it after I remind you that that you can always suggest content for the Edmonton Blog Watch using our handy submission form.
We begin our review with a double-whammy from 5k365:
- Brittney and Jessica have been discussing the “Friend Zone.” Brittney wrote about how once you’re there, there’s no going back; Jessica said the platonic and romantic shift and change all the time. What do you think?
- Kikkiplanet wrote about the in-fighting within the Wildrose Party. I imagine any party whose fortunes aren’t perfect struggle with the the leadership question a lot.
- Mack wrote about something I’ve always believed but never articulated: that the transit links between Downtown and Old Strathcona are terrible and need to be improved.
- Cam Charron from the Nation Network wrote about Nate Silver, statistics and sports. A great read if you followed last week’s US election and you care about stats!
- Tom Sedens’ parenting style was evaluated by one of his kids last week. Glad to see he got a passing grade!
- Sandra, one of the mothers of writer Mo over at I Dig Your Girlfriend, wrote about her perspective on her daughters’ coming out. It’s a really terrific read.
