What’s the difference between a weather man and a politician? .Answer , not a damn thing. They both look you right in the eye and lie their face off. What a great job they both have, trust me I know what I’m talking about. Would I lie to you my friend?
They haven’t a damn clue as to what they are talking about and the beauty part about it is they don’t have to be accountable for the crap they spew. I have no time for weather men. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to look outside and see that it is still snowing or open the door and yes, its colder than hell out there! That being said, I have to admit that yes, I watch the weather station too, just hoping that they might just call it right for the first time so I can see that the light at the end of the tunnel doesn’t turn out to be a train but indeed Spring.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Canadian right down to my wooly socks and Helly Hansen sub zero winter coat, but come on this is getting to be a little painful. I live on the prairies and I know that the winters here can be brutal but that doesn’t mean that I have to suck it up and tuff it out.
I’m a big boy and can handle all kinds of weather because no matter what it does its going to end and I can move on but winter is the worst for me. I find no joy bundling up in so many clothes that I can hardly move or praying to the weather gods to please let my car start so I can get out there and slide around with the rest of the crazies trying to get to who knows where on the coldest days of the year.
Frozen door handles, diamond ice on the wind shield. You haven’t lived until you have to get into your vehicle in the dead of a 6 am morning blacker than black outside and 10 inches of hard snow (Did you notice I said inches? its a test) on everything you have to clean, only to have the pure Canadian joy of sitting on a rock hard frozen seat. All the time thinking to yourself, “he said that to day was suppose to be warmer”.
I had to fire up the snow blower again because I couldn’t get out the drive let alone the door but that’s another blog.
I’m going to watch the weather man again this evening because I’m a glutton for punishment. What a great job this person has, should have been a politician.
