From the journal: “Rain! Rain! The worst day for rain as we headed for Winnipeg. Then the winds picked up to about 50-60kms. Or least it felt like that. Stopped at the Walmart at St. Vital Centre. Huge mall is attached to it. Went for a late lunch. Walked around the mall. Very cold. Bought some Metal-Earth puzzles. Hmm, we will see. Pretty finicky. Went for dinner and had a piece of pizza. Found that a cinema was attached to the mall through an arcade. Saw “Angel has Fallen”. When we came out the rain had stopped and it wasn’t as windy. And the fridge worked, what a surprise!”
