Looks like nature rolled out the white carpet this year.
Seriously, I love this kind of weather. Everyone I know thinks I am crazy, which makes me think that they are crazy. Seriously, look outside (assuming that you live in the Ottawa region as well). Isn’t this beautiful? And it’s not too cold (generally speaking), and as long as there’s no ice, you can take nice long walks. Ice is the only thing I really hate about winter.
My friends and family actually prefer the sweltering 30 degrees Celsius of summer, when the only thing you could possibly be motivated to do is lie down and die. It used to be one big pile of misunderstanding and conflict-brewing, until I figured it out. The reason everyone I know hates this kind of weather, meaning the snowy kind, is that they have to drive in it. I don’t, so I don’t give a damn. In the summer, they get to go in their air conditioned cars and drive to their air conditioned jobs and their air conditioned houses, and sometimes to the air conditioned mall and movie megaplex.
The obvious solution here is for everyone I know to get rid of their cars. Then they’ll have to walk to their air conditioned jobs and their air conditioned homes, and etc, and they’ll learn to love winter and hate summer just as much as I do.
