Winter has finally arrived here in Calgary. We always know that it will eventually come sometime around now, but we are never quite sure when it will arrive. Like a thief in the night. A frozen thief that leaves a huge dump of wet heavy snow that takes hours to scoop up so I can get my car out of the drive way.
Last night as I was driving Noah home from swimming lessons the radio hosts on the CBC were talking about the coming snow storm but deep down I didn’t believe them. The high yesterday was 9′C. How could there be a snow storm when it is so nice out. I was wearing flip flops and a light sweatshirt. No gloves. No winter jacket. No toque.
I guess the snow is beautiful and I should be thankful I live in such an amazing place where I can actually see the changing of the seasons. I just wish I had a heated driveway so I didn’t have to shovel or flame tires that melted the snow and ice on the highway. Regardless, I will have to put up with it for the next few months until Spring comes once again.
So winter…I accept thee.
