There’s a reason why I call Edmonton “Dirt City”. One of these days, I’m going to do a mini photo essay showing the filth, but for now here’s a wee picture of my dirty office window. This is not the dirtiest surface I’ve seen (there are some adverts that you can hardly see because the plexiglass over themare caked with dirt and grim), and this does not adequately convey all the dust in the air (I try to avoid standing to close to a road, as the dirt whips up as big vehicles go by), but it hints at the need for a good rain shower. Rain which we hardly get. Rain which keeps my hometown much cleaner looking.
