My car was still stuck in the parking lot of my sister’s apartment building. This was especially annoying because the parking lot in the neighbouring building had been cleared of snow 3 times since the big snowstorm. The neighbouring building also had a different property management company. Unfortunately the apartment vacancy rate in Winnipeg is very low, so property managers can get away with being lazy.
I ended up taking a Greyhound bus back to Portage la Prairie. The Greyhound bus was just as glamorous as I remember (i.e. not very). However, it is a safe, reliable way to get between cities on horrible winter roads.
The only exciting thing that happened in Portage was a visit to the dentist. Apparently the dental hygienist was flirting with me and was asking about me after I left. As usual, I was completely oblivious.
