Despite classes being suspended, this park would've been full of kids having a snowball fight - but not today
The Other Day
Yes. These were two of the after effects of last Wednesday's 2 rounds of snowstorm.
First round was in the morning. That was easy as the snowpile was less than 10cm. Then it was followed by a thunder-snow (yes, a thundersnow) at night. Round 2 made driving difficult as there was almost zero visibility.
Thank God for winter-ready wipers.
I left my cam on video mode on the dashboard and this was my view at 10kph.
First - Broke Back - no I didn't really break my back. But close to it. lol
Next - Mountain - yes, imagine 40 cm of snow spread across a 10 sq foot garage? I actually made a 5-foot mountain...good for me, just imagine those who have long facade? The digging indeed was a big problem, and that was another problem - the day after. See here.
"Take frequent breaks." - is the best advice for shoveling snow.
Here are some of the tested ones.
I remember reading this excerpt from Jim Paredes' website on how they decided against migrating to Canada. It's hard to say that it was one of Jim's best entries..as everything he writes are well-written and inspiring,
and it reads...
Except for the Snow
So he chose Australia.
On days like these, I don't blame people if they had to contend with the same decision and chose another place over Canada. I don't blame too those who chose Canada and regretted it.
Nothing makes me feel any regret from migrating here. Even a seemingly broken back and a 4-feet mountain of snow outside my door. Brokeback Mountain, indeed.
