Crack a Molson and fry up some back bacon, it'll be alright when the morning comes .
After 48 harsh Canadian winters, I can tell ya that feeling stays with me for the first 3-4 snowy days and/or maybe Christmas week.Man, I sincerely miss living there.
We would get hit with those total white out storms.
It was seriously cool.
Couldn’t go to work … so we would grab the toboggan and hit the hills.
We had a blast.
It was a magical place walking to the coffee shop after a deep snow.
Even junkyards looked incredibly beautiful covered with a sparkly deep white layer.
It's 8pm right now here in kona area of Hawaii and the temp has cooled down to a pleasant 78. Was 86 earlier which was good for snorkeling but a little warm for just walking around. Aloha.
I’ve often wondered how you guys up in Canada manage through the winter. I spent 4 years in ice cold Boston and did nothing but complain for 5 months out of the year while a good friend of mine in Quebec just sat back and laughed at me. I was very close to doing my masters at Université Laval and I guess I just chickened out.After 48 harsh Canadian winters, I can tell ya that feeling stays with me for the first 3-4 snowy days and/or maybe Christmas week.
Beyond that it's waving your fist at the snowplow driver who buries the parking space you had just spent 2hrs shoveling clean.
It's risking your life shoveling your house's roof after each storm.
It's no longer feeling your toes after a 2 blocks walk.
It's thousands of road-bound imbeciles who never took the time to learn how to drive in icy/snowy conditions and/or think they can get by with "4 seasons" tires...
It's unloading and re-loading the band's trailer in temperatures thatt turns your spine into one giant bone marrow Mr. Freeze.
Oh I still got plenty and could go on forever ... But yeah, for a minute here and there, it can be magical... !!!
Oh boy! I lived there for 6 years, Quebec City is COOOOOOOLD in the winter. Mostly on account of being right on the St-Lawrence river. The humidity will go right through any clothes you have and chill your soul. Well I heard there are some Okay universities in and around Boston, so I guess it turned out alright for youI’ve often wondered how you guys up in Canada manage through the winter.

The first part is all good, but Virginia has different taxes...not necessarily lower taxes. I lived there. Wait until you see your personal property taxes every year for everything, even that old boat trailer and canoe.Just moved out of Buffalo 2 months ago. We relocated to Richmond, Virginia to be closer to our son and daughter in law, warmer climate, lower taxes, etc. We built a beautiful home here and we love it.
LOL, actually I hid under the bed when they came home to pick up a forgotten wedding gift....whew!!!!“getting outta the house thru 2nd flr dormer after a big snow blow”
Should have read:
“Getting outta the house thru 2nd flr dormer when girlfriends parents came home unexpectedly “
We did not get 77” like Orchard Park (home of the Bills), in the northern Buffalo suburbs. Amherst, the largest northern suburb where I’m at recieved 6.5” Friday night and 5? more last night. It’s normal here. But some areas got hit.They’re looking at up to 4 feet of snow out your way.
