I like Imagine…

  Dragons… Not as the mythical monsters, but actually the band. Imagine Dragons. I love the guys and their music. I had been waiting for years when I learnt that they were coming to Québec’s Summer Festival, for 2019’s edition. I got my credit card out, and bought Chéri, J and I very good passes…… Continue reading I like Imagine…

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…

Ninny…

  Gloomy times, Stormy nights! Soul crushed, for You’re out of sight… My lips are sealed, but Heart screams out loud! If I could, I’d wipe Your skies of any cloud… Words brought us together, And drove us away. A squall of our own, And I didn’t have my say… But should you have The…… Continue reading Ninny…

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!

The big one…

The weather people had been warning us for about a week. This one was going to be a big one. Possibly this winter’s biggest. Snow storm, that is. I don’t believe weather people. I am sure they are nice ladies and gentlemen, but they seem to be making their previsions using a good ol’ Magic 8-Ball.…… Continue reading The big one…

Welcome to Freezingland!

We Freezinglanders like to discuss the weather. I don’t think it really qualifies as ranting. It is just in our blood. And since Mother Nature refuses to take her pills, we have plenty to talk about! From time to time, Non-Freezinglanders join the chat. Like yesterday, when my dear Trina mentionned that she couldn’t believe how people…… Continue reading Welcome to Freezingland!

Silly Haiku…

  Oh oh oh oh oh… Oh oh oh oh! Oh oh oh oh oh… The white stuff!     Ok, this is not serious, but I just thought it was funny that this fit the three lines of a haiku. And believe me, when a snow storm hits town, you need to find something…… Continue reading Silly Haiku…

Angry skies…

  Angry skies roaming with the sound of a thousand wild horses’ hooves stamping… Light dimmed, clouds somber and threatening… Flashes, lightning scarring the horizon! Burning my corneas… Light serpents coming and disappearing again, I am waiting, I am waiting for the rain… Thunder loud and getting closer! The storm is near, I feel its…… Continue reading Angry skies…
