Snow Go Away...Don't come Back another day




Growing up in Dubai rainy days were the ultimate treat.

We would splash around in the water, marvelling at the pretty drops, singing little ryhmes, floating our candle powered boats.

Weather in Canada has lost all its charm. It becomes an obsession. It's the main focus of discussion at meetings, in the kitchen, on the subway.....what's the weather like today??

It has snowed practically every other week since I got back from India.

The gods are trying to tell me something.

Tomorrow we are expecting somewhere between 5 and 20 cms. A huge variance, you would think they would be able to narrow it down a wee bit.

So my inner voice/child is singing, "Snow, Snow Go Away, Don't come back another day!"

Ps. In an attempt to lure spring in, I've changed the colors in the blog....

it didnt rain the year i was in dubai but i remember you guys had no drainage and the guys at work said it flooded when it rained.

snow sucks! winter sucks! the only thing that can make me feel better is a really early spring followed by temps in the 30s in early May. Now that would be sweet

Cranky, what do you think of the current state of Dubai? From the sites I've visited on the web, it seems like Dubai is growing at a tremendous rate and is modeling itself after Vegas. Do you even recognize it anymore when you go back to visit?

Cranky, the gods are telling you to pack up everything, rent out your condo and come find a job in the Cayman Islands.

I like the new blog design. A very tempting lure for spring.

Did I mention it will be in the mid-60's in Atlanta today?

I'm sure I didn't...

Enjoy the snow?...

Holla

Hello
I am going to dub myself spa advocate of the blogworld.
You need a spa day. Everything will soon clear right up but in the meantime, a little pampering will go a long way.

MB: I spent most of Saturday contemplating your suggestion.

All yuh Jamaican's with your 72 degrees.....sniff sniff.

GC That is a beautiful idea.

I used to love snow and rain. Until I grew up and realized it made life hell.
