Ah, the conveniences of technology. This morning when I got up, I wanted to know what kind of day I had in store for me, weather-wise. So I turned on my ipod and checked the weather. Nice! Today will be a comfortable 7 degrees. Still need a jacket and gloves, but still not a bad day at all.
Then for the fun part. I like to compare weather against where I know my family is, or where I am going to be soon. So I check Cancun, since I'll be pretty close to there in a short while. Today, it's 26 degrees with light clouds. That's what I like to see, hopefully I'll have a solid week of that.
Next up, I take a look at Moncton, NB since that is where my brother is. OH NO! it's already MINUS 13 degrees, snowing and forecasted to get even colder, to about -20 degrees centigrade. That's so cold that Louise can't go for walks anymore, that even a puff of wind will make your flesh freeze with the wind chill. That's downright miserable weather and knowing my brother is in it almost makes me giddy a little bit. It's one of those 'ha ha, wish you were here!' kind of moments. Conversely, I get grumpy when it's cold and rainy here and he's bathed in sunshine so I guess it's fair.
