It's been a long time since I had a snow day!
Back in grade school we always hoped for snow days. They would see the country kids stay home as the buses could not get to them safely.
I am already hooked on the Olympics!
Last Thursday I heard about a pairs figure skater from Northwestern Ontario and later that day, at lunch time, I saw him skate!
I was hooked instantly!
As I am sure many of you are aware this coming Sunday is Groundhog Day.
With this cold winter, I am sure many of you are placing hope that the hog will predict a shorter rather than longer winter.
What do you use the internet for?
Until about five or six years ago when I wanted to book a campsite I picked up the phone and called a toll-free number or the park itself.
What a difference a week can make!
Last week at this time we were suffering through some of the coldest weather in nearly 20 years! Some places reported -60 F with the windchill factor!
No matter which way you say it, it is very cold as I write this.
Over the past few weeks we have had quite the blast of winter.
It was a high-tech Christmas in our household.
Most people I know like getting cool gadgets and everyone in my family who received one was no different.
25 years ago this week I stepped off a plane from Windsor, Ont., where I was attending university, to begin my career here at the Record.
That is the only way to describe the weather since late last week! Sub-zero temperatures have settled in and do not look like they are going anywhere soon!
