Love that! People around here weren't panicked, just grumpy and resigned. It's not their first rodeo.  Chuckle

Also, the other thing about living in the north is that you understand that winter is trying to kill you so you prepare for it all year. In the spring, you spend one day celebrating that you didn't die during winter, and then you start preparing your garden, planting seeds, etc. You have to do this fast because the growing season is just about 4-6 weeks long. Then comes summer and you tend to the garden, hoping things grow. Autumn arrives next: harvest season -- canning, dehydrating, stocking up on things you couldn't/didn't grow as well as making sure you have warm clothes, blankets, etc. all in preparation for winter: the season that wants you dead.

This is the reason that people in the north talk faster than people in the south. We know that winter is always lurking in the background -- except when it's in the foreground, raging against us.

You perfectly described my year. With the addition of cutting splitting and stacking firewood one year in advance for affordable heat. And the tight window of time in the fall where you store your lawn and garden equipment and do the prepping of the snow blower.

Winter is an experience that changes throughout your life. As a kid it means sledding, snowball fights, snow forts and days off from school. In your 20s and early thirties it can mean skiing and snowmobiles. In your forties it means having to pay a plow driver an insane amount to plow your driveway. By your fifties it means you have to start thinking of moving to a place where you can handle the "misery" of winter better. By your mid fifties on it mean a life changing fall where you break bones. By your sixties it may mean more falls and possible heart attacks. By your seventies and eighties it means you are stranded inside the house not ever leaving unless you have help. No matter what your age as an adult it also means days off from work when you would rather be working and car accidents.

Overall winter sucks donkey balls.

It's been cold here, -20C all week, but no snow yet. We'll put the plow on the quad today I hope. Last year we waited until after it snowed to do it and that was
not fun. Already getting cabin fever Scream1

Must be a cold snap overnight.

18C is cold? Shock   I usually can't wait until the temperature drops below 12C.  It's current been around 13C here in the morning.

If cool weather isn't your thing best you get prepared for the mini ice age at our doorstep. (Or move to Fiji. Wink )
