|03:19 am - Winter already?? NOOOOOOOOOO~~!!!!!!!!!|
I went to a play tonight with a friend and the weather was so disgusting. It was snowing, slushy (once the snow hit the ground), blow-you-away windy, freezing cold, and the shoes I wore had absolutely no traction so I was slipping and sliding over the slush. Now I hear snow ploughs outside my window (along with gusts of wind that makes me oh-so glad for the human invention of buildings to keep out the wind and so freaking GRATEFUL for heaters)..in OCTOBER why am I hearing SNOW PLOUGHS?! Just the sound of the snow ploughs is making me shudder as images of the long nights, freezing cold, shivering, unpleasant, slush-filled, wet, sharp-as-a-knife biting windy days that await us in the months ahead.
I have to say, out of all the things I really, really, truly, honestly dislike about Canada is the long, cold winters that make you almost despair of ever seeing spring and summer again. Why can't Canada be where the USA is geographically?? ;___; Or at least separate the continent vertically instead of horizontally so we at least get SOME provinces down where it's warmer.
And with all the bulky jackets I have to layer on when I got out from now until...next May I won't get to show off my pretty, pretty outfits and earn odd looks from passerbys as I walk down the street T___T
Hey, now you're just adding to the stereotype that Canada is in a constant state of winter! XD
It's been fine over here on the west coast though, no snow in sight. It even almost made it to 20 degrees today! XDDD
You're in B.C.!!!
B.C., especially around the Vancouver area, is like...like...PARADISE!! Why the bloody hell we couldn't have established our capital over there is beyond me...actually no, it's not, I'd guess it had something to do with Quebec not wanting the capital city to be so far away from their clutches. We got -1 right now, feels like -8, with flurries predicted for all day tomorrow ;___;
How the bloody hell I'm going to wear my kimono/hakama and getas for Halloween on Friday is beyond me...maybe I'll wear 2 kimonos, 2 haoris and 2 layers of tabi...maybe buy a pair of those rainbow-toed socks to wear as a 3rd layer under the tabis to keep my feet from freezing. And maybe I'll glue like...rubber tracks onto my getas to keep from slipping and sliding when I walk outside. WAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Can't it at least stay above 10 degrees until AFTER Halloween??
Send some of your warm air over...just like...take a large fan and waft it over...:3
*grabs biggest fan I can find and fans like crazy* *starts blowing as well*
*self satisfied grin* Yep, I'm a Vancouverite...er, actually I live about 45 minutes outside of the city in White Rock, but that's beside the point. XD In fact, WR is nicer than the city. ^^ *nod*
*evil laugh* Well look what happens when politicians go somewhere warm, they go off to Hawaii and get arrested for DUI like our premier. XDD Maybe it's a good thing they're subjected to crazy cold.
Er, yeah. Kimono are remarkabley warm and all but... I don't think it'd do for neg. degree weather. Although there are ways of doing it. This website
is cool 'cause it's a kimono "club" (for lack of better word) in Hokkaido, so they have to deal with cold winters, and their pictures give some good ideas. TT_TT I think I've actually known of people who have put rubber on their geta. There's also this page
with people talking about wearing kimono during the winter.
...I need to dress myself up, I haven't done that in ages < /random>
*sends more warm thoughts*
snow already?? i do not like that.

Did it really snow that much in Ottawa? Yesterday, it left a light coating of snow here in Montreal, but today it was all gone (minus the freezing cold!). Do I feel sorry for you!-James
