I'm already tired of winter, and I don't live where it is really bad (I used to). Come on Springtime!

Man, it's been below freezing here all week. Even though I used to live in a much colder climate, I still hate winter more each year.

I left the thermostat set to 65F, so I expect that's what it is...!

For some reason I love snow storms. Guess it is the memory of school cancellations (snow days). Temperature here in Ottawa is dipping to -29C (-20F) most nights. Cold enough to cause pain to any exposed skin like your nose after only 60 seconds exposure, and frostbike after ~10 minutes. My dog does not want step further than a meter from the door to do her business, she's got it down to a 90 second turnaround time from outside to inside again.

Ottawa, winter of 1970/'71:

They had 14 FEET of snow w/out a thaw, and I recall that during one 26" snowfall a building (an arena...?) in Montreal collapsed from the weight of the snow.

I remember arriving from a flight and taking 45 minutes to get into my car, what w/ freezing rain, then MORE freezing rain over snow.... I like AZ winters a BIT more....
