My childhood's winters weren't this cold.

by TigerROS on December 13, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I'm a few decades older than I was. Global warming or not, I don't remember ever being this cold. And it isn't really that cold! Ever since I spent the winter in Florida, 6 or 7 years ago, this full blooded ,born on the Prairie Canadian girl can not stand the cold! I am in my house as I write this, with long underwear on under my pants, and no less than 3 tops of varying thickness.
I couldn't WAIT to get outside and go sledding on the hill behind my house, and the winter of sleeping in the snow fort I built in the backyard. Now, just a trip to the corner store involves FAR too many things to zip, snap, or button up.
