old man winter decided to pay my little corner of the world a visit
now, you are probably thinking "doesn't she live in canada?!"
doesn't it snow in canada all the time?
don't canadians live in igloos?
have beavers for pets?
cross country ski to and from work?
and say "eh" and "sorry" all the time?
and the answer is no, no, no, no and yes
i live on the west coast of canada
where our winters are relatively mild
when we hosted the 2010 winter olympics
we had to make snow
yup! we made snow to add to some of our local mountains
so much to the amusement of the east coast canadians
(the east coast of canada is an entirely different beast, weather wise)
when it snows here
our city is handicapped
the city shuts down
accidents, accidents and more accidents
people on the road go balistic
now i must say, i don't mind the snow
unless i am driving in it that is
(i am one of those nutso drivers only going 5km an hour)
but it sure does make everything super pretty!
do you get a lot of snow where you live?
