I keep saying this is my favorite time of the year and it is, except when it’s so freaking cold! It’s been like really cold here, over -30 C with the wind chill, for my American friends that’s really really cold, like hibernation cold. Like you step outside and the hair in your nostrils freeze kind of cold. Like when you step outside of your warm house and take a breath outside you choke when the cold air hits your lungs. And not only is it so freaking cold, we’ve had a ton of snow, like so much snow that people couldn’t leave their homes  because their cars are fully covered in snow, or because the wind blew the snow on the garage door, so unless you’re willing to shovel 5 feet of snow you’re stuck. Shoveling wouldn’t be so bad if you could actually last outside for more than 30 seconds. And with all this you’d think they’d declare a snow day. Not in Calgary my friends, not in Calgary. Remind me one day to tell you what happened to me in my first week when we moved to Calgary. All I’m going to say for now is that we moved in December and it was -40 C outside.
