cold weather arrives near red green after a hockey game

the cold weather is on the doorstep and the wind has a bite already. bundle up or stay home. why freeze?

i finally got the red green show - the 2000 season on monday. already a few episodes into it and already a craving for m&m's. goes back to when the show first started airing and i was always munching a bag of m&m's.

was at the oilers game last night and boy was it a bummer of a game. lost to the florida panthers 2-0 despite outshooting the panthers 41-15. their goalie saw all the shots, gave up no rebounds at all. plus the oilers didnt forecheck, crash the net or had much energy at all. it was frustrating to watch. next time - hopefully.

lousy cold and confusing weather

been dealing wiht a cold the last few days. not exactly fun. and i still have it a bit. no wonder ive been feeling lazy lol.

i think weve ditched the freezing rain. it was a rain/snow mix a few days ago. its snowing now and its supposed to sonow again tomorrow and friday. from what global is saying, we could hit highs of -20 by the weekend. and global has been pretty accurate with their forecasts. theyve only shown the four day forecast. so the six day will be interesting.
