Hello snow bank: When shovelling snow off the pavement, you deposit it at your snow bank. This is usually on your lawn, or next to the road.
Hello salt, sand, & gravel: Blue salt grains usually run havoc on the pavements; kitty litter and gravel are also thrown in for good measure. Friction is your friend; it doesn't let you down the way gravity does.
Hello winter jacket: This is the jacket that actually functions. It keeps you warm at minus thirty degrees celsius without breaking a sweat.
Hello slush: This is melting snow. It resembles the brain-freezing slushies readily available at your corner store. It is messy and verges on yucky. Do not walk too fast. Do not fall.
Hello garbage & trash: Repeat, not rubbish.
Hello skin: You get used to the cold, really, provided you don't spend all day outside & it's not colder than -20℃ with wind chill. This is CANADA son.
Hello winter sports: The only real reason to love winter.
Hello Tim Hortons: The day only starts after I've had my double double. Gonna go get Timmy's.
Hello boots: Boots keep your feet warm. Knee high boots especially keep you warm when you're wearing a dress. I never understand how people could wear boots in the tropics. Never.
Hello winter traffic: Where traffic signs don't exist and the lines are made up.
Hello powder: New, white fluffy snow. The best kind of snow to snowboard, ski, make snowmen, & have snowball fights with.
That is all for now. It's only 6 in the morning and I'm already all out of juice today. Have a good weekend everybody.
