To our surprise and delight, Geez magazine won in both categories we entered in the Western Magazine Awards 2007: Best New Publication and Magazine of the Year - Manitoba. As Manitoba winner we were eligible for the grand prize. In what some considered unprecedented, our new magazine took the overall award for *Magazine of the Year-Western Canada*.
Yesterday was the absolute worst cycling commute to work I have had in six and a half years of living in British Columbia! I have biked in various extreme conditions: torrential downpours, high winds, falling snow and icy streets but remind me never to set out when it is plus two with a mixture of snow and rain coming down on a layer of snow and rain already there.
