What else do Canadians have to do in winter but talk about the crummy weather? If it were summer, I could go out to my truck and drive somewhere, even just to Tim Horton's for a coffee, without changing my shoes or putting on a parka, scarf, gloves and hat, and just drive away. And the sun would still be up at 9 PM! As it is, it's -11, down from -5 today (so I was able to clear the driveway) but it's going to be down in the -20s all week. The only bright side is that there is supposed to be very little snow. And tonight I cooled my drink with a piece of icicle.
