In Calgary, the temperature reached a whopping 34°C last week. And now it’s a bajillion degrees across most of the country today.
And so while we all kinda feel like this:
We need to take a second and remember what the alternative is. And why you shouldn’t complain it’s too hot now:
Because, in a few short months, we could need Indiana Jones-type skills to dig out our cars.
Or you could lose feeling in your nose the moment you walk outside.
We could be colder than Santa’s house.
We’ll need to part the white sea of snow to get home.
And you could look out the window and see A LOT of snow. Not a pretty dusting on your street but, like, trapping you in your house kind of snow.
Instead of +29°C, it could be -29°C. Which would you really prefer?
You could be feeling a little less-than patriotic about Canada’s winter reputation.
Snow could foil your efforts at being a nice, upstanding Canadian citizen.
This could be your landscape. FOR 6 MONTHS.
You could lose your yard to snowmageddon.
You could have to deal with freezing, pissed off ghosts.
And you could be drying socks on radiators.
This could be your commute.
The snow could almost SWALLOW UP your child.
You could need an ACTUAL CHART from the government telling you how to dress so you don’t get frostbite.
You could have to wrestle a baby into a snow suit.
And your head could end up looking like this.
And lastly, never forget what waiting for spring actually feels like.
Still too hot for you out there? Didn’t think so.
