Once you experience a white Christmas, there is no going back! I know folks that spent a Christmas here and they thought it was a "magical" feeling. Getting up in the morning, looking through the window, you see the ground blanketed with snow. To them and us, it looked like the world came to an understanding. An understanding that their should be peace on earth. That we shall all forget our petty differences, whatever they maybe, and live a joyful life.
Yes I do miss mostly the fun of last winter. But it is true I don't miss the polar vortex. Snow is great and Christmas day was great. I posted a video of the white Christmas AND the heavy snow falling on that day. It was the best white Christmas ever because it included snow coming down heavy Christmas morning. Something you most often are not lucky to get in Toronto for Christmas. But after Christmas, the cold loses its glory.

Yes I have a whole list! Micheal's, Costco and Hallmark all got it before September comes. Micheal's is the last of the 3 to start.

I think I have to go to Canada but there is one thing that is stopping me from realizing this and it is the weather I am monitoring right now. Very low temps coming up. This is the one obstacle preventing me from getting back into Canada. I think I have been far away for too much time but worry what will happen weather-wise to me. On a positive not, it is only about 2 months or a little more than that till winter ends. I think in 3 months I will be fully capable of being back in Canada. I need to get my career back on track, but that weather difficulty clearly is going to hold me back. I am ilequipped to deal with the weather there so I cant go now. I pray for an early spring.

Pssst that jacket is what got him to be mod. So lets all buy these jackets and we will soon all become mods :razz:

Can you ship me one to the Philippines? I promise I will wear it even in 32 degree weather :)
I will get in the jeepney wearing it and everyone will stare at me while I sweat to death.

You are right. Especially compared to last year, it is more modest cold I am seeing for there. The brutal core of cold is not digging down this time. It is just slipping by to the north. Minus teen temps is what you get at the worst for night time lows instead of minus 20s like last year. By around now, you had windchill warning after windchill warning last winter. This year if I am not mistaken, you are still getting none. and after this cold, it moderates again for January so you might not even get a windchill warning this year. Maybe just one at the worst.
