Spring, not quiet

What a beautiful day. The bright shinning sun is lighting up the brilliant blue sky, it could almost be spring... except it is -25 this morning.

It is still beautiful though

Why I Love Ontario

This is a poem a friend gave me yesterday

It's winter in Ontario
And the gentle breezes blow,
70 miles per hour at 52 below!

Oh, how I love Ontario
When the snow's up to your butt.
You take a breath of winter air
And your nose is frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful,
I guess I'll hang around.
I could never leave Ontario,
'Cause I'm frozen to the ground.

Don't worry Mum, spring will come before i have to fly home.

Ok eh!

I now feel more Canadian than ever before and it is all thanks to Bob and Doug McKenzie's movie Strange Brew. For the Aussies, I would call it the Canadian equivalent of The Castle. Strange Brew includes wonderful Canadianisms as 'hoser' (a loser), 'take-off' (go away), 'beer' (beer) and 'eh' (ay in Qld).

Bob and Doug

You know you are in Canada when:
  • your breath turns to ice on the windscreen when you get into the car in the morning
  • you following your friends home from an evening service and the snow is falling so heavy their tail lights disappear, and they are only 50m in front of you
