Just A Typical February Day In Canadia

Sometimes our weather is annoyingly stereotypical… Apparently, Ma Nature has decided to make up for not smothering the country until the after 27 December 2015 and is dumping the entire expected forecasted snowfall in eleven freakin’ hours!!

Well, I’m off. I need to shovel out my front lane. Again. Lord knows how many pets and short people I may find out there…

Aside ~ How’s About This Weather?

 Well… No words that are fit to print! ‘Sides, why waste a perfectly good curse when the acoustics in this town just reverted to soup tin and binder twine quality?!

24 December 2015 to 29 December 2015 ~ Welcome to winter in Ottawa.

Aside

I didn’t plan to post again until after Christmas but this is too cool not to share. Ottawa is listed among the coldest Capital cities on earth during winter. Today however, THIS is happening:

I loved winter when I was a kid but it loses its appeal when your skating, skiing and tobogganing days are over. Not to mention who wants to live through a winter where the air hurts your face?

If Santa has brought me global warming this year – I’m not complaining – 18ÂșC!! 🙂

A Christmas Story

… of a different stripe

White Tiger, Snow, Humour, Big Cats, A Christmas Story

“NOW it was serious. A double-dog-dare. What else was there but a ‘triple dare you’? And then, the coup de grace of all dares, the sinister triple-dog-dare.”

A quote from my second favourite Christmas movie – Nightmare Before Christmas – being the first. In the interest of full disclosure, I stuck my tongue to the bumper of my Dad’s car one year. 1972 Impala… delicious!
