You'd Never Survive the Winter (or SPRING!) in this Province

So, when I got ready to make my morning commute, I noticed a shocking discovery on my windshield. No, not a crack or anything... but a LAYER OF FROST!

ON APRIL 22.

Saskatchewanians are sick and tired of talking about the weather, and I am definitely one of them.

Bring on summer!!

Oh I love that Amy Millan song.

April coldness brings... well it better bring something good!


Brrr.. Is it Spring yet? Technically, yes. Externally? NO. I just want sun and warmth. Is that too much to ask for?

Anyway, grumble. :)

If you're a local Saskatonian, and are a listener or supporter of the station and community radio, you should think about becoming a member!
