Home Sweet... oh shit.

On Friday afternoon the many Calgarians and Edmontonians in our PCOM crew were huddled over our laptops ferverently checking and rechecking our flights.

"I heard all flights to Calgary were cancelled."
"You're okay going in, but no planes are leaving!"
"We're only delayed two hours; how long is your wait?"

We took long walks in the sunshine, soaking in the lush greenery, knowing that we were coming back to white. Nearly 20 cm of it. Less than a week later, the conversation is more like this:

"Want to run to Starbucks?"
"What's it like outside?"
"Only -14!"
"Oh God -- so warm! I'm in!"

So warm. At -14. That's what four days of -20 to -30 gets us.

It's hard to read and even think about writing four major essays when at the end of the day I just want to hurry home, start up the fireplace, and watch Dexter with B.

Even though I have no idea how to calculate Celsius to Fahrenheit, that sounds incredibly too cold. Stay warm!

This made me laugh today. It just started snowing here for the first time all winter. Thanks LB :)

I love when it's -14 the OTHER side of winter... once we've had the -30s for 4 months -14 is definitely balmy :)

Hope you get to that fireplace soon!!
