At the risk of incuring the wrath of environmentalists everywhere, I am going to stand up and say WINTER BITES!
These are not clip art, this is a picture of my 'hood. The snow is falling, the wind is blowing and it's just miserable out there. Those shiny things, snow that got on the lens of the camera.
I left work early and was able to get on the early on an earlier train. Was it ever packed, I felt like a sardine. We got to the train station and I decided to take the bus home rather than have Shawn come pick me up. The bus they provide for commuters is not one of the big honking buses but the smaller ones they normally use for people you have disablities. It was all the poor little putt putt could do to get the momentum going. The engine would just be reving and we would hardly be moving. I finally made it home and Shawn was out there diligently snowblowing away with his beloved Maple Leaf toque. My poor little snowman. Being the good guy he is, Shawn went and helped out our neighbours as well that don't have one so when he came in he was just covered from head to toe.
I think it's time to invest in a property in the Caribbean.
