STRIKE!

Are you kidding me? A windchill of -30? In March? That's it. I quit.

I have never been more ready for spring. Usually, I try not to complain about the weather. What do I expect? I live in Saskatchewan where it's stupidly cold in the winter, freakishly hot in the summer, and spring and autumn are lovely and last 2 weeks each.

But this past month at work has sucked big time. I've had to sit and watch wonderful co-workers and dear friends get laid off, and every day I wonder anxiously when I'm next.

I'm SO ready for one of the coldest winters in 30 years to end. My whole body is aching for above 0 temperatures. I want to shrug off this parka and kick off these Sorels and run free in the muddy, flooded streets!


I want to gulp down too many pints of Grasshopper on the patio of my favourite watering hole!


I want to see the trees and shrubs blush green again!


I feel like a 3-year-old having a temper tantrum in the middle of the cereal aisle at the grocery store but I don't care. I'm on strike against the weather - who's in?


(Yes, I just wrote a whole post about the weather. So? If I was in an elevator with you, I'd ask if it was cold enough for you, too. Deal.)

  2. I am so ready for spring, too. I feel like if I don't have a pint on a patio soon, I will implode.

  3. Sorry to hear about your layoffs at your work, but glad you're not part of them. At my work we've had three "town hall meetings" in the past two weeks featuring mumbling Vice Presidents and CEO's telling us things aren't so bad, but we all have to work a little harder and oh, yeah salaries are frozen this year, so let's all smile and work together towards an uncertain future.

    For some reason inspiration escaped me.

  4. Hey, c'mon; this is Saskatchewan, where our goal is to "be cool but stay warm."
