you say Polar Vortex, I say Winter!

girl tired of winter


March is here and unless Mother Nature

has one hell of a hot flash anytime soon

and before the first day of spring

which I believe is the 20th,

I am not too optimistic

that snow banks will vanish before my eyes

or that spring flowers will be blooming

and I have a pretty good idea

how that first day will play out.

first sign of spring

So why is this happening.

Guess we can’t dismiss the fact

that someone somewhere noticed

an airflow chart that would cause

colder temperatures,

more snow accumulations

and an unsteady weather pattern affecting the entire world

to which we have been informed it’s

official term for 2014

(that’s if you made it of course)

survived polar vortex

Of course in my neck of the woods,

Polar Vortex is just another technical way of saying


We really can’t put all blame on the P.V.

A little furry rodent who poked his head out

didn’t give us such great news either

and from what I understand

pissed off even more

who had to suffer through this torturous season.

finding the ground hog

So it’s been a long one,

making some of us a bit tired and edgy

(myself included)

and at this point in time,

I will admit that my inner hate meter

is approaching very high

warning levels

and some crazy ass thoughts keep emerging.

kill the snowman

A little too dramatic…huh?

All I know is I am ready to say good-bye

to the Polar Vortex for this year

and finally welcome summer.

With outstretched arms,

 screaming at the top of my lungs

 with all my might

and so very anxious to say

with absolute conviction,

“Hello Solar Vortex, how you doin’ hot stuff?”

Until than my friends…

weather winter stay warm

Make it a great day everybody!


winter…love it or leave it?

winter 4

For any of you still loving the winter wonderland,

I suggest you STOP reading this right about now.

I feel a “rant” coming on, and you can bet it won’t be a pretty one.

Yes I know I have touched on this topic before but like I tell most people,

if something is bugging you, it’s never healthy to  hold things in.

So here I go…

I am a very proud Canadian and I should be more accepting about all of this,

but now that we are approaching the end of February,

I can honestly say…


Waking up to yet another morning  of snowfall.

Sure it’s only 2 to 5 cm’s,

a dusting as the weather people like to call it,

(which always amuses me because according to those numbers we can just run out and shovel in our slippers…no problemo!)

I am tired of the bulky winter jackets.

Those silly yoga poses just trying to get my boots on without taking a header into the front door.

I suppose I could wear my hockey helmet

(because we all know that every Canadian must own one)

 but I am pretty sure my moose hat won’t fit over it and you all know how obsessed I am about how I look in public.

(for those who know me..insert giggle here!)

Nothing says “YUK” like  sweaty hat head when I take my winter toque off after shovelling for the 3rd time in one day.

Of course there’s that dreaded

“snow dripping in your boot and making your sock all wet thing”

which is always a welcome treat only because you didn’t lace up properly.

(to which I blame the yoga move for and making me hurry with all the blood rushing to my head)

I can not leave out the unusual relationship with my shovel or the multitude of conversations with the snow plow guy either.

( so it’s more of a  sign language deal , but we always understand each other which is the main thing. )

Let’s not leave out  feeling so confined in my seat belt with a down filled jacket,

and knowing that the only range of movement I truly have once I am strapped in,

is the fact that only my eyeballs can shift from left to right like an owl.

What am I missing?

Oh yes!


Having that jackass in his/her 4 wheel drive or pick up truck,

thinking that it is necessary to stay close enough behind you and shine headlights directly into your rear view mirror in blizzard conditions.

(Yup!! that should make all the cars crawling  in front of me in a storm drive faster)

Did I mention “jack ass?”

Okay, just making sure.

There is a ton more I can rant and rave about and I am sure that if you are as fed us as me,

you have a few more to add to the list.

 I believe I have said what I needed to say for today,

but I will leave you with this in hopes to make your day a little brighter.

winter 3

Excluding the dope smoking, this pretty much covers it for me.

To those of you that feel the same way…

Hang in there my friends, we can make it!

For those of you who don’t agree and may feel a bit offended…

Go back to the first 2 sentences again.

You don’t follow directions well, do you?

All in fun my friends!! 😉

Make it a great day everybody!
