Is Summer Canceled in Ottawa This Year?
Mar 24, 2008 / By Alex Gorbachev
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I was at the Hotsos Symposium 2008 this year. You might not know that I also had a chance to take few days off and spend 1+ week vacation in Texas after the symposium — enjoyed the sun and warm weather. My family liked that even more than I did.
Unfortunately, when I was back home last weekend, I discovered pretty unpleasant view from my windows (that’s not basement!):
The view is much better now — I can see some bits of blue sky above a snow bank. So it’s end of March and these days are sunny but freeing — feels like -20 degrees Celsius (below 0 Fahrenheit). My back still hurts from excessive snow shoveling last weekend (so that I can see blue sky from my windows). And… sorry nothing about Oracle — I’m too busy shoveling the snow away from my house so that when it melts next year — I won’t have flooding problem.
I know warmer places do exist! Maybe I should find one?
