Want snow?

A couple of days back, the weather people got really excited. Their enthusiasm suggested the blizzard of the century, and a great part of the population started anticipating the snowstorm. See, usually, when mid-January comes, most Quebecers are absolutely sick of dealing with snow. But we had a record winter this year, and aside from…… Continue reading Want snow?

Who’s your daddy?

Translation: ”Snow (pointing to the left), thanks!” When you live in Freezingland, you just have to show snow who’s the boss. Note that, being Canadians, we make sure to stay polite, even when we tell the white stuff where it belongs…

Blur…

  Blacks and whites Blending into greys…Winter’s quite the mystery,Wouldn’t you say?Trying to grasp The very soul of the storm,Riding on the highwayFar away from home…Staring the beast in the eyes,As it might occur.I suddenly feel uncannily familiarWith that untamed blur…

Let it snow…

  As much as I am pretty proud of people’s general reaction to our Prime Minister’s request that we shouldn’t leave our homes unless absolutely necessary… I am scared that springtime will lure some of us away from safety.

Trina is a good friend, and we’re not short…… Continue reading You want some snow?

Welcome to Freezingland!

As I am spending the evening catching up on comments (yeah, that’s going to take a while… LOL), Mother Nature has decided to greet us with yet another layer of the white stuff. We are expecting something between 15 and 20 centimeters during the night. I thought I’d make a short clip but I think…… Continue reading Welcome to Freezingland!

We have survived!

    Twenty two years ago, Montréal was recovering after the worst natural disaster the province have experienced, ever. The ice storm that lasted almost a week long, and left 100 millimeters of icy rain behind (more than double the average total of icy precipitations for a whole year) paralyzed Montréal and many other cities…… Continue reading We have survived!

Shadows…

  I can’t imagine what it would be like, not to know snow. To only know what I would have seen of it in books and in movies… I was born on a snow storm night. And as much as I like to complain about it, it’s always been part of who I am. At…… Continue reading Shadows…
