Heille, y neige dehors, prise 2...

(English below)

"Ça va être beau en janvier", disais-je en novembre. Ben aujourd'hui, ma blonde en chemin vers la seule école qui soit ouverte de la région m'appelle de son cellulaire pour me dire que toutes les autres écoles sont fermées, pour cause de "neige" (ici, les journées que l'on qualifie "de tempête" par chez* nous, sont appelées "snow days"). Mais, comme je l'ai déjà mentionné, quand les écoles ferment, les universités à Waterloo ferment aussi (à l'exception de Conestoga College, mais c'est plutôt cégep comme institution). Le seul hic, c'est qu'il n'y a pas vraiment de neige (on peut encore voir des brindilles de gazon à travers), à peine un peu de grésil, et une dose homéopathique de bruine verglaçante...

*prononcé "che"

"It's going to be really nice in January", said I back in November. Well, today my girlfriend calls me from her cell, while driving to the only school (private obviously) that stayed opened today, telling me that all the other schools were closed for cause of "snow day". Which means the universities also shut down for the day (I later checked the website to confirm). Well Conestoga College stayed open, but it's not really a university. The only thing is that it didn't snow today (yesterday's accumulation wasn't enough to completely bury the grass), there was a little bit of ice pellets and an homeopathic dose of icing drizzle...

  • Driving while cell phone calling is a bad, baaaad thing. And I am ashamed to say that I did just that. :(

  • Montreal got a very nice snow storm today, but it's all business as usual in the city which was quite ready to the occasion. The winter's here at last!
