Beware of Falling Objects
Yesterday, foot-long icicles were crashing off the side of Notre Dame cathedral. It made quite a dramatic noise, though sensibly, the cathedral keeps pedestrians away from the side of the building this time of year. But falling stalactites — er, icicles — are everywhere in Vieux Montreal when we have this type of freezing/warm/freezing/warm weather. I don’t know if anyone actually gets injured by them, but the thought of a hard pointy projectile aimed at my head is alarming. If you’re walking around the Old Port, I’d advise you to wear a sturdy hat, or better still, walk as far from the eaves as you can.
