Brrrrrrr! It’s Cold Out Here!

Filed under: Work — Bob @ 1:08 pm

I’ve spent this week in Rochester, NY for work. According to the locals its abnormally chilly this week. Its below zero (Celcius) and I’m very much unaccustomed to this sort of weather. Vancouver is wet but warm in the winter, although you wouldn’t know it from talking with people here. Around Wednesday I lost count of the number of people who said things like “Well you’re from Canada, you must be used to this kind of cold”. Bah!

More uplifting news to report: the cold weather reminds me of growing up in Michigan in the winter time, and this leads to thoughts of Christmas. Its hard to get into the spirit of Christmas when its warm and rainy. :^)

Other than a few hours of work next week, I’m now off for Christmas holiday until the New Year. This schedule has left plenty of time to shop for gifts as well as enjoy time around the house for more robot projects and hockey. We have tickets to the World Junior Hockey Championships as well as the Canucks over the next few weeks. Sometimes we’ll be seeing three games per day!
