Frozen: not just a movie

Today I had to move the seat back in the car. Not because I suddenly grew 3 inches but to accommodate all the layers I had on.

I  gave myself lines to write as punishment for choosing to live in a country* where frost bite warnings, polar vortex, and frost quake are every day jargon. I love winter. I love winter. I love winter. I love winter. I love winter. I love winter. I wrote this over and over again until I was crying on the inside. And not just from the hand cramp.

But to top it all off I got a text from my stepfather: Just landed. Boarding the bus. Hot and sunny.

It was in this moment I spewed venom.

it's all about me; weather; polar vortex; frost quake; cuba; carpWe are in the same freakin’ time zone yet there is a 43 degree difference between our locations. FORTY THREE DEGREES. Something is not right here. I must fix this. Where is the number to www.itravel2000.com?

*I really do love Canada. However, the deep freeze our region has been under is becoming just a wee bit intolerable. Pook can’t keep up with my fleece onesie orders.

    LOL … you sound like me. My mantra is typically I chose to live here! It IS Canada! We get snow!
    Having said that I leave next week for a MONTH working from Florida(one of the benefits of owning your own company)!
    I’m really getting the hang of this Canadian Winter thing :-)
    PS. I will definitely be thinking about you ,,, scraping your windshield, keeping Pook in business etc.
