It's Winter here in Canada...
And the gentle breezes blow,
Seventy miles an hour,
At twenty five degrees below.

Oh, how I love Canada,
When the snow's up to your butt,
You take a breath of Winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful,
So I guess I'll hang around,
I never could leave Canada......



'Cuz I'm frozen to the ground!!!

That's cute :) I can't imagine that much snow at once or it being that cold.

Here are a few pics of the snow for you. The one is what used to be my car, but now is just a big blob of white in the driveway. The other is the front "lawn".

Something is definitely wrong with the camera, but you get the idea....

Certain lighting can make things blue. Adjust your white balance and you should be fine. ;)

Looks cold!

That, my dear, is why I live in Florida. :thumbsup:

OK so there is a triangle with several white dots inside it, or with only three dots inside it. The setting it is on right now is several, I am now changing it to just the three to see how that works. I will then go take one of the pics again and see how that works.

AND yes, it is bloody good and cold today and there is an awfully cold wind.

Thanks Jan!

P.S. Is this any better???

I love your poem! Here in Michigan, the snowin' keeps goin', too! Feels more like the winters when I was a kid than the past few have (except I don't remember aching as much from shoveling snow back then!).:teehee:

Love the poem. I live in Alberta and right now we are covered in snow. My kids are happy we've had 2 snow days so far with no school. Mind you it was -35 with a windchill of about -45. Glad that only lasted a week.
