1 day 5.5 hours to the Paralympics – Winter, excitement and the Paralympics!

March 11, 2010

It’s raining downtown, but snowing in the mountains today… Heck, it’s been snowing in spots all over town!  What a great welcome for our Winter Paralympic athletes!  The Paralympic Torch is traveling throughout Vancouver, people are rallying to the Flame and tickets for the Opening Ceremonies are nearly impossible to get!  I’d say we’re ready for the Paralympics to begin!

Aack!  I was going to write a bit today but we just had plants delivered for the ‘Living Wall’ in the Salt Building.  I will take a photo and post it later today but it is a 20′ long hanging full of around 600 small plants.  It’s really cool but we managed to kill about 2/3rds of the plants already so we’re fixing it up today.  And 400 small plants will take a while to plant.  So I’m going to run and chat at you all later.  Until then, if you haven’t got tickets to a Paralympic Event yet, you can get them here!

 

Thank you merci for reading!!

    What’s the reason being given for not broadcasting the Opening Ceremonies live?

    I cannot wait for the Opening Ceremonies … another audience participation kit! So much fun!

    Personally I think the broadcast media … in this case CTV/TSN/Sportsnet … is treating the Paralympic athletes as second class athletes. They deserve much more!
