The cold Canadian winter

It's not snowing today, but the pavement outside looks like it's been bleached and salted. Barely any snow on the ground, just that hard rind, and the streets look rather blasted. And when I walk outside the cold hits the palms of my gloves like it's a stiff breeze; there's a tangible pressure.

I'm looking forward to spring.

Lucky, I wished it snowed in Australia (in more than one crappy group of mountains).

Hey, snow is great. I love snow, and we've got plenty of it today. But yesterday it didn't snow at all. It was just cold. And I'm willing to bet you wouldn't like that kind of cold.
