it is white. every morning it is white. for the past two weeks the temperature has not risen above -20C, and most nights it has dipped well below -40C. but all is not lost, the days are getting longer.
i like winter. i take pride in the fact that i don't bitch about the weather while continuing to live here. to me it makes little sense unless the weather doesn't do what it is supposed to. right now it's supposed to be like this. it'd be like a hawaiian complaining that there is just too much damn water and sand.
still, the idea of living in vancouver and having winter half an hour's drive away WHENEVER I WANT IT, no more no less, appeals to me more and more. cross-country skiing in the morning, supper out on the patio. nice.
