At first it was just Saskatchewan. Then it was annoying, then depressing. Now it is National news.
On Saturday night it snowed like crazy, and Sunday we had super-wind over 50km/hr that gave us -12 windchill. Â We were supposed to go paddling but I did yoga instead; I did not want to be cold. Â I did initiate some home projects though; I bought two end tables so we can rest drinks down when sitting on the couch (lots of indoor time to think about this). Â One table will be painted ‘green apple’ and I am going to stain our pine dining table as well. Â I just need a day that is warmer than 10 C and not windy so I can do it outside!!! Â Good luck. Â Sunday was the coldest April 21 in 100 years. Â At least it makes a good story to tell grand-nieces.
This weather prompts thinking:Â What would I be doing if not in SK? Â If in Sweden, then much the same, just classier and in better-designed surroundings. They have also had a crummy, slow spring, although they have had a lot more skiing this month than we have. Â If in BC, I would be paddling in the mornings and thinking it is pretty chilly at 4-8 degrees… that’s certainly relative. Â If in Australia, I would be enjoying Autumn and getting ready for (ha!) winter.
