A Respite from Winter

I have to explain that I really do like winter. After autumn, it is my favourite season.  It provides the chance to skiing and maybe even do some horseshoeing,  However, I have to report that Today’s Perfect Moment is the rather sudden and unexpected absence of winter in my vicinity.

Starting late last week, the temperature has warmed up and made most of the snow go away. While it wasn’t shorts weather, I could have taken the mountain bike out for a spin amid the remaining salt and slush and probably have survived.  I didn’t do this, but it was nice to know that I could.

toqueOf course, unlike my somewhat perplexed students, I do expect winter back again. This is just a respite from the onslaught.  I am not putting my coat, gloves, scarf, boots or toque away.


About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.
