I Guess this is What Doomsday Would Look Like…

I dare you to find anyone in Canada happy with the weather right now. It’s… it’s miserable. There are no words to describe it, “it” being blizzard, sub-zero temperatures, strong winds and heavy rain. Yes, these were just the last few days.


We are so desperate for spring that when the temperature climbs to 5°C, people are walking around wearing shorts. There is a note on the door at Mark’s daycare reminding parents to keep on bringing snowsuits, mittens, gloves and hats.


Last Friday, at 11:35 a.m., after getting soaked three times already, I decided to document our misery. I headed out with the camera in the neighborhood. It was almost dark, the wind was very strong and I took the pictures quick between two downpours. It felt like doomsday.

This is what our “spring” looks like.

Stop laughing.
