Who is the Dumbass Taking Photos in This Weather?


Well, took Dad in for his tests this morning. I mean, that's why I'm here. We, unsurprisingly, had the start of a tiff on the drive in. I reminded both of us that 95% of arguments are because someone in the argument is hungry, and, well, he had been fasting for around 30 hours at this point, so maybe, we can hand each other some grace. He calmed, I calmed, we arrived safely and on time to the medical facility.

The temperature was -22˚C, again, still, when we arrived. I commented to Dad that I was going to walk to the nearest Starbucks for breakfast while he was having his tests done. He looked at me like I was crazy. I was going to walk? It is cold. Most people would drive. Why would I walk? I explained that the walk was all of a 9 minute walk, why wouldn't I walk? THE WEATHER, he repeated.

Well, he's not exactly wrong. It is cold.

He checked in, we waited, he was called back, he went.

Canadians are weird


Okay, it's 0°F, -18°C outside, and this guy is not only wearing shorts, he's wearing flipflops.

In the middle of winter.

In the middle of Canada.

Wait, did I say Canadians are weird?

I meant insane.

Figured out how to get warm here.


I finally figured out how to get warm in this area.

The trick is layers.

As in: underwear, long underwear, long pants, t-shirt, long-sleeved shirt, hoodie, full-length jacket and ANOTHER jacket on top of that.

Then, go indoors.

Finally, finally, FINALLY warm.

Kitt has layers

Until we go to the car.
