Ok, I get I live in Canada, but this weather is really getting on my nerves. Is this snow ever going to end!? It feels like the last week has been especially annoying. Maybe it’s because we’ve had all 4 kids here for a week so getting Dylan and Robyn to school in another town has made us overly aware of terrible driving conditions, but it seems like we’ve spent every night listening to the kids obsess about whether school would be cancelled the next day or not. It’s driving me up the wall!
We have had just about every kind of bad winter weather lately. If it’s not snowing, the wind is blowing making the snow we’ve recently had blow through the country side causing white out conditions. Then it’ll get warm enough to melt a little causing slush EVERYWHERE. Then rolls in the cold snap. I’m not kidding you, 2 days ago it was -45c with the wind chill when I left for work. So all that slush on the roads….it’s now nothing but ice. That wonderful deep freeze was followed up by a winter storm warning today!! Come on! Kids came home early from school, buses tried picking kids up but ended up turning around and heading back to the school and highways starting shutting down. Needless to say our Valentines plans were cancelled. Today we had snow, wind AND icy highways.
We are all starting to go a little stir crazy. We’ve tried filling our time with board games, movies and whatever else we can think of, the boys have even bundled up a couple times, loaded up a hockey net and hit our towns newest pond for some ice hockey with friends. The effort is there but the gloom is really starting to set in and irritate all of us. This family of mine needs some sunshine asap.
Brad and I are heading on a vacation in April and there’s a chance may not return haha
Anyone have any other ideas of how to cope with constant winter?
