Ugh. Winter is tough on me - I love the weather, it's downright balmy by Aaaaaadmontin standards... but I HATE the short days and endless nights. Lookit that - darn near quarter to nine and the rooster is still snoozing on his perch! Ya go to work in the dark, ya come home in the dark. The sun sets at 4:15 here today.
But - this is life in the Great White North. And there's a plus side to everything. Back when my wife and I were kids, this long haired liberal f-knuckle accidentally produced one of the most endearing of Canadian songs. Today he's just another greasy, elderly hippy but he can still sing, oddly enough. Once you understand that Bruce Cockburn is just another liberal dancing monkey not to be taken seriously - you can truly enjoy his music. He is a product of Morontario, Tranna to be specific, where the asshole density is almost as high as it is in New York City, if ya catch my drift!
I hope your loved ones are close on this longest, if not the coldest night of the year. :)
