Yeah it’s pretty cold and pretty…Posted: December 2, 2010
I’ve held off mentioning the weather. It’s a perennial favourite of us people from the top country in the 2nd tier of the world. My guess is that it’s because weather here is so… interesting. I once went to a gig where the band performed during a strange mix of sunshine, rain, lightning, hale, sleet and snow before the sun came out as they left the stage. They were a black metal band* so it’s entirely probable they’d organised it with the bloke downstairs. Fast forward a few years and this is what I am putting up with:
I love snow. It’s great: I love the way it looks, the effect it has on whatever it touches and the way it adds texture. I hear constant whinging about it** – some people seem to suggest we’ve never had it so good – and then there’s the whinging when we don’t … I say enjoy it while it lasts!
* I have to insist that I not be associated with this sort of music as I find it incredibly tedious. Not so the girl I was going out with at the time.
** This one really gets on my nerves. When did this country become home to 66 million Scrooges?
