This e-card sums it up quite nicely.
It’s been wintery here in Edmonton for over a month, but it wasn’t until yesterday that things moved to the next level. For the last two days, with the wind chill, temperatures have plummeted to -40 degrees (celsius). Ponoka-just south of us (and where Russ is from)- was the coldest place in the world yesterday; -40 without the windchill (cue collective gasp), god knows what with.
I however, did not come here to complain like I’m sure some of my other Albertan contemporaries have. Yes, its fun to get outside and roll around in the snow, but isn’t it great having an excuse to curl up on your couch and be lazy all day?? All you need to say is “My car won’t start in this cold”, and you’re set…no one can dispute you.
So, for those of you in the same type of climate as me, take today to just relax. It’s the holiday season, and I know everyone is busy running around like a chicken with their head cut off getting ready for Christmas, but if it being cold isn’t an excuse I don’t know what is.
And to those of you somewhere warm….F$5^k you! (JUST KIDDING!or am I 😉 )
Back tomorrow with your regular program. Stay warm friends!
