Viking Invasion

May 19, 2011

Yes, it is “The Dead of Bloody Winter” again with temperatures dropping down to a startling 12 celsius.  That has been enough for the kids to pull out their winter gear.  Today they decided to put on woolly hats to keep the chills at bay, hence the photo on the side.  It is funny to see the “cold weather phenomenon” here.  Some people are still walking around in shirt sleeves while others have pulled out the woolen mittens, scarves and hats.  The range in temperature tolerance is marked – one of the Canadian teachers is still pressing on with shirt sleeves while other teachers have pulled out knee high leather boots and 3/4 length wool coats.  It seems the kids are confused too by this untropical weather.  Some insist on wearing shorts and a spring jacket even though others seem like they are on the lookout for flakes!

I remember when my family would travel to Myrtle Beach, SC from southern Ontario during the March break.  When we arrived there, the temperature was balmy for us!  However, for them it seemed like what we affectionately call “The Dead of Bloody Winter”.  We laughed our heads off at their toques and such while we were running around in our shorts and tees trying to get some colour on our cheeks. 

So, you could say all that jeering has come back to bite me on the butt!
