I really have. I am sick and tired of snow. I usually love the winter but this year there has been to much snow, too much rain, too much ice to do anything. We have been stuck without a car for 3 weeks, even longer if you count the days we couldn’t get it out of the driveway or up the street. I have just had it. My drive way is a skating rink! There is 5 + inches of ice covering every little bit. There is not a store in Halifax with salt, sand or anything. Haligonians are getting inventive and you know what that means? Accidents and mishaps. The are calling it the mini ice age and it is starting to feel like it!
I don’t want spring. I want summer and I want it now. Do you hear me mother nature? Now! Please, please please, now! I am tired of falling, freezing, getting soaked, almost getting hit by cars or slipping under moving ones because you have to walk on the roads cause the side walks are too dangerous. I mean walking on side walks that give the local ice skating rink a run for their money. I shouldn’t have to feel like I need a helmet, ice skates and knee and elbow pads to just leave the apartment. Not to mention it being -33 C one day and +3 C the next! It’s frigging crazy. I feel like burrowing into my blankets and refusing to come out until the winter is gone. I am so so close! I think groundhogs have the right idea.
