In the six years we’ve lived in Canada we have always known that it CAN and has at some point in history snowed in every month of the year. But we had never experienced it. For us a couple of snowfalls in May and September have become the norm but the three sacred months of Summer had yet, in our time here, to be sullied with the colorless stain of snow, a blight on any Summertime forecast.
But we have been warned and have learned that in this country it is wise to never say never in regards to weather.
I’m sorry to our friends who have heard that such things were possible but were not “treated” to any of the white stuff during their visit with us last week. On all of their three visits up here it has been warm and wonderful so they believe this whole snow thing is a great Canadian hoax. We have told them to hang onto their hats (or toques as the case may be) for there will be plenty of snow all in good time.
But for now this image should suffice to remind them and myself never to say never.
There you have it, my friends. This is our life. I hope my tulips don’t curl up and die.
