Spring in Alberta

One day (my first day back from Cuba, when I slept all day, naturally) it was 24 degrees. Later the week, it's a freak snowstorm with intense wind and -12. Snowed for four days straight. Beginning of soccer cancelled. Flip flops thrown back into the closet, snow boots pulled out. Joy.

This is the true north strong and free, and cold and wet, and icy and dark. Sometimes all at once. It's why God invented long johns. This is Canada. We have winter. Life sucks. Get a touque and embrace it. -- Rick Mercer
