Holy Winter in Nova Scotia, Canada!

Whether you’re American thinking in Fahrenheit, or Canadian thinking in Celsius, it’s COLD here.

The temperature outside our house is now -15 (C). With the wind, we’re well past twenty below zero. (Dude, that’s cold.)

I’m no outdoorsman, not an Inuit, nor am I fond of cold in general. In fact, if I can share, I’m daydreaming of a toasty beach chair and a cool tropical drink with one of those little paper umbrellas.

Instead, I look outside and I see blustery, blowing snow. Here in Nova Scotia, the weatherman gave us a blizzard warning as well as a blowing snow warning in effect. What does that mean?

My wife’s workplace closed their doors, due to the extreme weather, alerting all employees to stay home. That’s a first since we’ve been here.

My kids are home from school still on holiday break, but they won’t be going outside today.

If you happen to live in a warmer climate, share with me what you’re doing today. Let me know you’re enjoying the outside. And if you happen to have a beach chair and one of those tropical drinks, can you send a picture? hahaha

It's COLD!
It’s COLD!

Cheers all and hope you enjoy your day however you can!

Now, is it making the news as such a big deal as the dreaded “Polar Vortex”? Well, no. But I still say it’s freakin’ cold.  LOL

An American who likes to move around. I now live on the eastern Canadian seaboard. My job? A stay-at-home dad for two cute but demanding bosses. My wife? Also cute; not so demanding. My wife and I both love travel. We met in South Korea, travelled across Australia, India, Europe and beyond. We lived in Czech Republic for four years. Many stories to tell and experience to share. If you let me, I will help you travel as we do. Enjoy.
