Okay. I surrender. You win.
In the middle of yet another stupid messy storm, I admit defeat.
I LIVE IN CANADA. SHOVELLING HAPPENS.
There. Are you happy now? Stupid weather.
And today, you can’t just dump a whole bunch of snow and be done with it, can you? Oh no. Not winter in Southern Ontario. OOOOOOOHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOO.
You have to dump a mix of freezing rain, and ice pellets, and snow, overnight. Then, you stop at dawn so the morning commute is a big ol’ stinking mess.
THEN, you take a break for, what, 6 hours? Just enough time for me to go out and shovel all the heavy half-frozen crappy stuff off the driveway and the walk. And THEN you do it all over again, just in time for the evening commute!
Winter? You are a BASTARD.
Oh sure, Ninja Jack takes the opportunities to make cheerful-looking snowmen in the back yard. And while that puts a smiling happy face on winter, you and I both know it is ONLY TEMPORARY.
For you are a wintery cold bastard with no mercy for little boys OR their friendly snowmen.
You send rain and warm temperatures to MELT them.
You MELT snowmen, Southern Ontario Winter! You break the hearts of little boys!
I surrender. You win, you coldhearted bastard.
I’m staying inside where it is warm. Call me when it’s April.
THEN who’ll be in charge? HMMMMM?
