It's so cold...

As I sat in my car facing into oncoming traffic this morning on the Yellowhead, waiting for a break in traffic where I could extricate my car from the snowbank it had spun into, I cursed winter. Especially when, between snow and cold, getting anywhere gets quite sketchy. I mean, it's really winter right now. Nastily winter. Then I thought, Hmm... Maybe I can make this a community thing. So everyone, get on board! If you live in Alberta (or remember living in Alberta and how it sometimes gets), post some "It's so cold..."s on your weblog. If you don't have a weblog, feel free to use the comments.

For me? It's so cold... rethink your carefully planned meals for the week to make sure there's warm things every day. wish your dog was toilet trained, for his sake more than anything.
...opening the cupboard to put away a travel mug and getting that unmistakable whiff of hot chocolate (when you aren't allowed to have any) is cruel and unusual punishment.
...your knuckles split open even worse than before, just because it's so cold. Lotion does not seem to help the situation. wish not for a tropical vacation (though that would be awesome), but for a return to -5 temperatures. That would be nearly tropical! think about revisiting this idea in seven months or so, when the temperature has gone up 70 to 80 degrees and you'll be complaining about how hot it is. Then you realize just how much temperature 70 to 80 degrees is, and boggle.



Hi Vanessa!

Thanks for the Christmas card update on what you guys have been doing. I look forward to getting them each year when I arrive in Cape Breton at my parents place.

I'm glad to hear all is going well. I'm still in Ottawa and loving it.

I hope you're still writing!

Enjoy the winter!
