On January 14, my son and I fly back to South Korea. In Busan today, the temperature is +6C.
Here in Penetanguishene, schools, roads, well, everything is closed because of the blizzard. The wind is howling and dumping snow and the temperature is below -15C even before wind chill is taken into account.
My son and had fun today anyway.
Winter started early with a lot of snow in early December. I seem to remember lasting snow only falling around Christmas (and falling for the next ten days straight, but not until then) This winter, it has been early and constant.
Once outside, we built a quinzee. Outside, the wind was strong and the temp around -15C. Inside the snow house, there was no wind and the temp was much closer to 0C. The main problem was having our glasses fog up in the warmth.
If we were staying in Ontario for the whole winter, we might soon get sick of the weather. A short but real winter (again, in Busan it is miserably cool but not cold enough for sledding or making snowmen) is fun and I’m glad to have had the chance to enjoy it.
I sure hope our flight isn’t delayed though.
