Spring is 24 Days Away, Winter Only One!

Posted by gottabkd on Monday, February 25, 2008

Ugghh!!!! When will it all be over?? Really over.

It seems that this winter has hit us all really hard this year. People have been hibernating in droves. No one wants to go out in it and we all just seem to want it over. Even people who live in areas where winter is half the year, lasts longer than in Toronto, they too want it over. Gone already.

It all started early this year when the snow came and never left, or actually came, then left, then came back again, then left, then hit us again… No wonder my skin is chaffing off.

High and low pressures from various US regions have made sure that us Torontonians, Ontarians and most of Canada in general have really been hit hard with cold and snow… Everyone is saying enough already!!

And tomorrow will be no exception. Starting later tonight we can expect 15 cm of more snow and by the weekend another 25 cm. Can we say enough already!!!!!! Please repeat after me, Enough already!!

When will it all end and when will spring really be sprung??? Ugghh!! No more please… rid us of this looong winter and allow Mother Nature to spring a new season…. Please!!! We all remember snow in mid April so will we get that too or will this season end quietly? Right after this next storm?

In the meantime, I prefer to think of things like this:

Work

After all winter is just one long season.

So You Think You’re Canadian Eh?

Posted by gottabkd on Friday, February 22, 2008

Are you? Born in Canada, raised in Canada, domiciled in Canada… you must be Canadian right?

Canada Flag movement

Well, right, but do you think like the majority of Canadians? Do you know what Canadians think? Really know what they think.

For example, “Which province is more likely to support the decriminalization of marijuana?”

Is it
A) Ontario – The stoner capital eh?
B) British Columbia – the best pot comes from there right?
C) Quebec – The religious centre of Canada
D) New Brunswick – Um, why?

So what do you think is the correct answer… Hint, it’s not the obvious choice.

After taking this little Quiz, two things came to my mind… one was that I am not as smart as I think I am and two I apparently am not thinking like a Canadian. OK the quiz is two years old, it was brought out by the Globe and Mail and we all know those kinds of people who read that newspaper…

So take the quiz yourself and see if you know just what Canadians think. It’s only 20 questions and will take no time at all. You may even do better than me which wasn’t very good and you might understand a little bit more about what Canadians think about.

Cheers and have fun.

Lunar Eclipse Tonight! Totally Cool!

Posted by gottabkd on Wednesday, February 20, 2008

That’s right folks… a total eclipse of the sun… er moon. Sorry that was the other song running through my head… 😉

It happening tonight between the hours of 7pm and midnight with the best viewing from 10pm to 10:50pm EST in my area…. it could even appear blood red or orange if we are lucky. The weather will be cold dropping down to about minus 10 degrees here… it could be worse, in Alberta they are expecting it to be -32 degrees burrr… so dress warmly.

Spectacular is all I can say…

It will also be visible anywhere in Canada as long as it’s not cloudy… but even with some clouds it could be really cool to. I plan on taking some pictures, hopefully the PC will let me download them to show you but if not… why not take your own shots. You may need a long lens and a tripod to get a good picture, but the different phases could still show up well on your camera phone… hmmmm, must try that one

Things to bring or have on hand:
1) Camera – to capture the moments
2) Tripod – to stabilize the camera, but any solid surface will do
3) Blanket – to snuggle with the special someone, keep warm
4) Hot drink of your choice –
coffee, tea, hot chocolate
5) Car – or bus, feet, truck… to get you away from the city lights
6) Patience – hey it’s a long show

So get out there tonight, grab a friend and have some fun. Head for the outskirts of the city or up the CN Tower and catch this event. What ever you do, stay warm!!
