  • Spring where are you? I’m ready for you.

    I am at my parents place for the weekend. I traveled down after work last night for the weekend since I have not been home since American Thanksgiving in November. I am happy to be home. While I was here I decided to see if I could get my nails done. The result:

  • I have had enough of winter!

    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. [...]

  • Snow, snow and more snow.

    This picture was taken today at the Windsor Street exchange which is a major exchange in Halifax that has about 7 streets going into it. Thought it was kinda funny. We’ve had so much snow we have 15 to 20 foot snow banks in parking lots and 5 to 6 feet snow banks along the sides of the roads, walking down a sidewalk feels weird cause you can’t see anything.

    Storm drains all over the city are buried. Might as well completely forget about fire hydrants, they can not be found. City’s pleading with people to help them dig them out but wont tell us where they are as they say it is a safety issue, to me not knowing where they are is a bigger safety risk. In the last 2 weeks we have had 42 cm (28 fell on the same day) and 13.4 mm of rain. [...]
