Don't Panic! No this is not from this year. This was taken in January of 2008. I t is too bad that it was taken from the inside of my brothers truck, or you would not have to look through the dirty windshield!
So what would pocess me to post this picture your asking yourself, I have a very good reason.
Yesterday I recieved an email from a woman in California about computer issues with some blogs opening and otheres not. It does seem better today although Holly, Sarah and Claire, I still can not open yours.
Anyway she said in her email that where she lives she has only seen snow there twice in 49 years. When I read that I instantly thought how lucky I was to have grown up where there is the snow. California sounds great too, don't get me wrong....but there is nothing like getting all bundled up in a skidoo suit, boots, scarves, hats, helmuts and then before you are outside the house, you realize, oh jeepers I should have used the washroom! After you get undressed and dressed again well now you have increased your temperature by 10 degrees and yes by Goodness sakes you have increased your size by about a third of another person. There is no such beauty to be found in any snowbank within a hundred miles...So out into the brisk minus 35 degree snow to now be on the back of a skidoo, doing 30 miles an hour behind some lunatic that is driving determined to drop you into a snowbank down a hill and then watch as you struggle to get back up the hill. You warm up so fast from the exertion of putting one big honking snowboot in front of the other that by the time your up the hill, you feel as if it is 20 above. The good news is you still look as gorgeous as you did when you went down the hill. After all you should be able to see the slit where my eyes can peek through the ski mask. Yes those eyes that are now decorated by white foggy eyelashes that even Brooke Shields would be proud to have(Holly, you know the add I am talking about).lol. Then comes the question, Hey should we build a fire? I think to myself, just what part of the snowmobile does he think we can use to chop down wood, But you see in Canada we are strong like Bull, no axe needed or part from snowmobile. And again I think to myself, maybe a nice fire inside with hot chocolate and a blanket would be more up my alley...but oh no, lets just sit my big large behind into a snowbank,,,oh down you go until the snow is at your neck,,,sure am having fun today! Oh and while I am in the snow up to my neck, yes I could dig myself out and make snow angels, however once you are on the ground in a somewhat semi frozen state, you hear a call saying, Hey are you getting cold yet? If at this moment I had any sense of humor about me, I would reply oh no, I am good for another six hours. But since I have no feeling in my round donut toes frozen at the end of my feet, I have to admit that getting warm was a thrill, because the fire that he had started all that did was melt the material on my skidoo suit, so instead of warming me up well lets just say there was a bit of a breeze going through. We must get back by dark! Your wondering why by dark, well so we can unthaw by morning and yes my friends do it all over again for about another five or six months!..........note to self, I may have to rethink this weather thing, me in a snowsuit or in a bikini on a beach in California....well that settles it, I am staying where I belong!
Today was my best day ever,
Put that in your fridge and feeze it!
P.S. I really do like winter!
