In a month, it will be -35 C. Any snow that falls up here doesn't melt until April. I don't mind the shovelling, I hate the cold. But it's a dry cold.

I really didn't mind the winters back home except for all the damn slush during the mild days. My feet were always wet. I missed those record snowfall winters over the past few years but that's what snowblowers and little kids who knock on your door willing to shovel your driveway are for.

arw9797 is living my kind of weather, brrrrrr. Stay warm.

Me too. I love the seasons. I'm not a fan of super cold weather, but it's nice to have the defined changes.

Well, you know the old saying "if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes"

That last one is the worst! I saw one of those road guys with the "stop" sign practically blow away a few days ago in the wind. I laughed, and then felt very guilty... He's probably in a ditch somewhere.

-35, ouch.

The slush is a pain. Especially when you're walking on the pavement and idiot drivers fly past you at 70 km/h. I liked Newfoundland winters the first year I moved here, mainly because I'd never seen snow before. The concept of the temperature dipping below 10 degrees seemed almost unreal to us. Now it's nothing but a pain in the rear!

Snow is still kind of fun though, I'll admit. A scene from my back garden two years ago:

HA! Poor guy. I'd hate to do what they do. This summer when we were driving to Terra Nova, we passed a road sign guy who looked about ready to pass out from dehydration. They really have to endure everything. And I don't know why they even bother with trying to fix the potholes, because they just have to do it again the following year. Where I live, the moment June hits, there's a bunch of guys hammering away at the asphault in front of the house at 7 in the morning. Every. Single. Year.

...very creative! The other great thing about winter is road hockey...a Canadian tradition! It's hard to get people to play now, with most of my friends moved away....I keep telling them we should have a reunion game one day, and retire our jerseys in the trees...

I know, it's horrible. From what I gather, the initial work is never done properly, so they have to keep fixing it... I love this place, but sometimes the mentality bugs me...it's not the workers' fault though...it's the higher-ups, IMO.

The novelty wears off really quick, don't it. I was the same way about -40 C the first time.

Your hammock snowman is very Calvin and Hobbesish. But you should have cut off his head.
