It fucked me up watching Master Chef Australia when they did seasonal dishes.

The one chick made some sort of light and refreshing fruit salad and the judges said they loved it because it reminded them of backyard Christmas barbecues with their families. I mean we still barbecue during winter in Canada, but it's more of a warm and toasty food sort of deal.


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

Shout-out to the Midwest who are currently experiencing what it's like to live in a city in Antarctica.

That's 10.5 degrees Celsius.

I'm wearing shorts and a t-shirt at 14 but only because I'd get arrested if I wore any less.

Part of it is environmental, but some people are just built for cold.

5 degrees Celsius is my sweet spot. Too much above that and I die in a puddle of sweat and shame.

 

Of course it's -5 right now so I'm dying in a puddle of ice instead. Most stores are out of essentials, major roads have been closed, schools might be closed (I have to wait until tomorrow to find out if my kid's going to school or not) uuugh.

The media keeps reporting on the weather over and over again about an extreme cold this month. Cold air happens every winter. I don't understand what makes this one any different.

So.. we have set records here for the low..  Bottomed out at -67F with wind chill, -42F actual temp.

 

Why do I live where the air hurts my face?

The worst death toll in the United States for a winter storm occurred in The Great Blizzard of 1888 in the Northeast. Over March 11–14, the blizzard dropped between 40–50 inches of snow in parts of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. It blocked roads and wiped out telephone, telegraph, and rail service for days. It was responsible for over 400 deaths (200 in New York alone) and sank 200 ships. New York and Boston created the first underground subway system partly in response to the massive 1888 storm and the gridlock it created.

Are you being sincere?

That's about what it is for me this morning, but it's going to be hot later.
