One-Liner Wednesday – Snowin’ Like a Bugger, eh?

56 Comments

I think you have to have spent a lifetime in a climate such as the one we have in Southern Ontario, Canada, in order to be able to say with a straight face,

“It’s snowin’ like a bugger, but at least it’s not cold out!” and mean it.

This is two day’s worth of snow.

  1. LoL Linda… too true, yet SO funny! Plus here in Alberta, we smile and say, “but it’s a dry cold” 🙂 This year seems like we swapped weather with you guys. I don’t think we’ve gone more than 2 weeks without melting +C temps, which is what’s forecasted again now 🙂 ♥ ❤

  13. I didn’t grow up there, but I say the same thing when it’s snows. It’s much warmer when it’s snowing that it is when the sky is clear.

  17. Saw your beautiful snow, missed it with the intensity of a thousand suns. We haven’t had a lot of snow this winter, though when we did it was nice and thick. It’s been gone for a long time so I’ve been living with snow vicariously through you and Cheryl on Traces of the Soul.

  19. Sorry, Linda, but if you can still see around the snow banks to pull out of a driveway or into an intersection, I don’t have a whole lot of sympathy right now. Yesterday, I saw some poor sap dressed in his work clothes and standing on top of a 6-foot snow bank waiting for a bus – he couldn’t stand in the street because it’s a very busy 6-lane highway. Wish I would have been there when the bus arrived and he had to climb down that snow bank to board – maybe just sort of slide into the door or something?

    My husband’s been complaining how dangerous it is to turn from one street into another because you can’t see around the snow. I haven’t had any problems (yet) because I sit up higher in my SUV so I can still see over the top of the snow banks (sort of), but it’s just a matter of time. More is coming our way.

    We don’t have it as bad as Boston, however. For them, I have some sympathy right now.

    • These pictures were actually taken last week, so no, we can no longer see over our snow banks. And there’s more coming. I’ve learned that it’s much easier getting out of the driveway when I back in… but then again, blind is blind, right?
      And speaking of buses, that sign in front of the snowbank in the second picture is actually a bus stop bench. It’s almost completely snowed in now. 😛
      Stay safe!!

      • You, too, Linda. I’m sure we’re both ready for spring.

        PS: Got home today at lunch to discover my kitchen ceiling with water marks from the melting ice in the gutter. Just got the roof last year, so the roofer is coming out tomorrow to see if he can do anything now or if we have to wait until spring. Arrrrgh! But at least the roof is under warranty, and homeowner’s insurance should cover the kitchen ceiling, if necessary.

  21. I know all you people with snow probably hate those of us who are actually wishing for some our way. We’ve had one snow storm this year and it was tiny! We didn’t really have a winter and I’m sad. But this made me laugh, so thanks for that Linda! I hope you can enjoy it at least a little bit? 😀

  23. Is there a prompt to follow for this or is it just a one-liner Wednesday of our choice?

    • And more snow tonight I think. Weren’t you just getting freezing rain or some such awful thing out your way yesterday?
      Yes, we do love our country… the fact that there are airplanes leaving it on an hourly basis doesn’t hurt. …sigh. 😉

  26. We still haven’t had a real snowstorm this season, and it makes me crabby. I know, I know, I’m weird, but it’s just not really winter without a proper snowstorm. We haven’t been able to build a snowman or anything! Round here, we get mad when it’s crazy cold without snow. You’ll hear us say, “If it’s gonna be this cold, it should at least snow!”

  27. Linda, close your eyes, relax and think of July 15, 2015, you are in your backyard, , 2:00pm, sunny afternoon, the temperature is 95 egress, the humidity is 90%, and there is now wind, now hold on to that thoughtful picturesque moment.
