Snow, beautiful snow

It's snowing outside. Beautiful white crystal flakes are falling from the sky and settling on to the grass and trees. In a few hours I'll have to pull out my winter coat and shovel the driveway.

Thank goodness.

The weather here in southern Ontario has been nothing less than eerie this winter. It's beem unseasonably warm and no snow to speak of. I've been going to work in short sleeved collared shirts. I don't even know where my winter boots are.

And it's mid January. Normally at this time of year I've already hit the slopes at least once and taken the kids tobogganing. I should be sick of all the snow by now. But for the moment I'm going to enjoy the falling snow and temporarily delude myself into thinking that everything's alright with the planet.

Global warming is just a theory, right? Like evolution and all that weird inconvenient stuff....
