Random Thoughts…The Still Freezing My A$$ Off (Rant) Edition
We are still experiencing cold, cold and more, cold. I know – I live in Canada, what else can I expect? Well, I expect temperatures that will not cause me frostbite to my extremities that are not covered up and that exposed longer than 5 minutes to the elements (aka my eyeballs).
We’ve been under some Polar Vortex (WTF) for the last month. Enough already. I not only have to deal with the cold, but there is also the blowing snow and wind chill warnings on a daily basis. It would be nice to have a day of normal driving conditions where my commute only takes an hour instead of the hour and a half of late.
To make matters even sweller (yes, I know it’s not a word), our heat here at work only works occasionally – usually NOT on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. I’m sure its toasty warm in here on the weekend, but I don’t plan on testing that theory out.
I took a sick day yesterday and I was actually sick. Shocking I know. I’m not sure what kind of bug I had, but it kept me in bed and asleep the entire day. That’s okay, I’m in training for my hibernation that I intend to go into next winter.
Here are some photos of from around our house after this weekend’s latest blizzard. Yes, the use of blizzard is warranted. I haven’t seen this much snow in our yard in the last 13 years.
This snowbank was about 4 feet high.

What else to do on a blizzardy day - I finally got around to baking those cookies I missed getting to at Christmas! Better late than never...
