Trashy's World: About that storm…

… that we had in Ottawa yesterday. All things considered, I think the City staff and equipment handled the situation the best they could. More than fifty centimetres of snow fell in about a 14 hour span… very challenging for City crews. Hop… . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: About that storm…

Winter can be tough for some people. If you are a person who feels down and out during the colder months there is an easy thing you can do to improve the season: change your attitude. Seriously. Recent research into how Norwegians relate to winter can help you in the times of snow. Don’t deny […]

Didn’t have my camera when when we got hit with sunshine combined with blinding wet snow but got a few of the aftermath.



centre of the universe: Why we can’t be friends when you’re in Hawaii

My cousin is in Hawaii right now, and I have vowed that she and I can NOT be friends until she is home. Now. She’s a professional photographer, so all of her pictures of her little “vacation” are fucking gorgeous, and because I am not at all petty or jealous, I’ve decided that I’m going to post photographs of MY … Continue reading →

PostArctica: Ice Storm 2015

Nothing like ’98 but still there are people without power, treacherous walking and driving conditions. Nature at it’s finest, cold, brutal, beautiful.

The nets on the balconies to prevent pigeons from roosting take a beating in an ice storm

Chadwick's Blog & Commentary: It’s snowing, snowing, snowing…

I was looking outside today as the snow fell in Collingwood (-11C when we awoke, -10C when I first walked my dog…) and thinking of my brother-in-law in England, where they are getting walloped by a Canadian-style winter. He must … Continue reading →

THE FIFTH COLUMN: An Atheist Celebrates a Secular Christmas in a Multicultural Canada

So why would a non-Christian celebrate Christmas.

Well first of all from a religious point of view Jesus Christ is not just the Christian Messiah but also considered to be an important prophet amongst both Muslims and Jews so there is no reason they cannot celebrate his birth, while not recognizing him as the Messiah.

From a non-religious point of view there is a lot of controversy over

Given the arrival of Winter here in Souwesto, I thought I’d put up an excerpt from the second half of The Fridgularity (A Cold Reboot), in which the lead character goes for a little cross-country ski, and things go awry. … Continue reading … . . . → Read More: mark a rayner | scribblings, squibs & sundry monkey joys: Excerpt from The Fridgularity: a ski in the storm

350 or bust: Meatless Monday Musings

It’s Meatless Monday, and here in Northwestern Ontario we’ve just come through a January cold snap (which some people complained about, but which was reassuring for a climate activist!). It’s the time of the year that it’s great to curl up in front of our pellet stove with a good book (I’ve just started “The [...]

The Skwib: Betsy of Narnia Reveals the Ugly Truth

‘Allo, dearie, I suppose you’d like to hear all about your hero Aslan and those Pevensie folk, but you don’t want to hear it from the likes of me.

You want to talk to Edmund’s horse Phillip or p’raps those Beavers (desperate suck-ups the Beavers). They’ll tell you want you want to hear.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I was not a fan of that bitch queen at all. Not at all. Us Jersey cows are not made for the cold, and the White Witch had the thermostat turned down all the time, but at least when she was running
