Snowfall

Snow
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

It snowed upwards at the office this morning.

Yesterday, I walked home with Damian and angorian, whereupon I commented that the weather was quite warm. So warm that the sidewalks were no longer treacherous.

This morning, the sidewalks were all slick with ice, and I practically skated down Parc to get to work. Along the way, I met a cyclist who was trying to ride up this icy hill, but kept on falling down.

I arrived in the office unhurt, but with my hair wind-blown and snow-drenched.

Oh Montréal, I have missed you!

Snowing *up*? Weird but awesome. I'm guessing it's a side effect of city air current flow?

Yes, that's exactly it.

It's 11pm here, temperature is 10 degrees, there was slight rain during the day. People persist in saying that it is "cold" and oh so "wintery". I laugh my ass off.

It was the same in Seatlle, with people all bundled up when there wasn't even ice on the ground.

I finally visited NITI on Tuesday, but most everyone I knew (with the exceptions of wlach, dcoombs and angorian) were away on trips or something. I guess *someone* had to stay behind and get some work done.

Work? I was working when I was in San Francisco. On my own time, even!

Don't get too comfy. We miss you here in Toronto and can't wait for you to come by for another visit.

Although I love you guys to death, I'm afraid that Markham doesn't hold a candle to Montréal.

You should all pick up and move here. Right now.

I'm just weird...
... but then again, most already know that... and I beleive you also do... so snowing upward isn't so odd...Montreal is odd in general... Montreal missed you too I am sure.. and as sure as you were going home with Damian yesterday, you were again tonight... why is it we always run into each other by fluke on the bus? Must be fixed. Yes indeed. Welcome back. *superhugs*

Yes... I asked Kris, and he will be by my place at 1:00, so would have to leave chinatown at like 12:15... so 9am or something insane would be goods... depends how long it takes.. .ususally with talking and all around 2 hours no?

Re: I'm just weird...
Two hours is definitely a reasonable amount of time.
