Snow Snow Snow

I gotta say — I’m fairly amazed that it’s still snowing on the west coast. I woke up to a white coating on the local mountains and houses here. I actually spent a few years living in Ottawa, and one of the reasons I came back was because the weather was so much warmer out here.

If I didn’t really have any mental capacity, I might be worried, but right now this just seems like some really weird, sudden onset cold or something. The past two days I’ve woken up with a sore throat, so I’m hoping that it goes away tomorrow, or at least starts to feel better. I spent a bit of time […]
