It’s winter in Alberta
And the gentle breezes blow,
50 miles per hour at 10 degrees below!
Oh, how I love the frozen tundra
When the snow’s up to your butt;
You take a breath of winter air
And your nose is frozen shut.
Yes, the weather here is wonderful,
You may think I’m a fool.
I could never leave Alberta,
Cause I’m frozen to the stool.
PS: Knock it off with your pictures of spring crocuses already.
Thanks to Michelle for sending this along!
Baaj has a new game – he wants to go outside on the deck and have you throw a snowball – then he digs all through the snow trying to find it. Crazy dog.
This afternoon, he ventured off the deck and climbed up a 3ft snow bank and then got “stuck”. He was walking back forth trying to find a way to get down.
Never fear Baaj – here comes Search & Rescue:
There she goes
Down she goes
There were impassioned pleas for help:
It was too bad that I was firmly behind locked doors, drinking coffee and laughing my head off. If only I had heard her cries for help 🙂
It was the best hour of my life.
My neighbour just told me to check my sump pump to make sure it’s working because “when it thaws, it thaws fast”. I don’t know what a sump pump is, where it would be located and how to know if it works. *fingers crossed*
Pecora Nera gave me the best news of the day: Apparently snowmen will help prevent flooding! Thanks BBC!!!
I have enough snow for a complete Calvin & Hobbes montage:
Balzac Billy – to quote from the Calgary Herald: Somebody in a gopher suit emerged from a pile of garden mulch Saturday morning with his thumbs up and sunglasses off.
It seems a bit off to me – but hey, if there is a chance that spring is coming early – I’ll take it.
It was another gorgeous sunny day here and we finally unearthed the toboggan & off we went to the closest hill.
Baaj has redefined the meaning of going for a walk:
Getting ready to fly down:
I tried to get a picture of mid-action or at the bottom of the hill but it didn’t quite work out 🙂
Currently cooking: Mango Chutney in the slow cooker. It smells amazing in here – almost like summer!
