Scenes like this are no longer slightly amusing, they are simply disheartening. I feel like we're been on a winter roller coaster for months now with no end in sight. Temperatures drop to bone chilling minus double digits for a week, then rise and a snow storm blows in, then drop again and repeat. Fires must be stocked, paths must be shoveled, even the garbage cans must be routinely dug out of the snow. This is officially the worst winter we have had since moving to PEI.
Today is a good day though. The temperature has risen from -12 degree celsius overnight to a balmy +4 degrees.

I will concede that the island has never looked prettier when it lit up like a jewel in the morning sun after an ice storm.

|Ice covered cars are NOT beautiful.|
In the meantime Rick Mercer helps bring a little levity to the situation and helps keep me sane. Enjoy.
