Why you don't want to live in Canada

I woke up this morning, and this is what I saw outside my house:

Oh good. It's well into March and I get to do MORE SHOVELING. Ever the optimist, my dog rushes outside and buries her head in the snow, probably trying to dig out the half eaten lunch some little turd chucked onto my lawn on the way to school.
But even she got sick of the snow, mustering a classic "WTF is this shit still DOING here still?!?!" look:
In classic dog fashion, she figured that if she tried to kill the shovel, the snow wouldn't come any more. After all, when the snow comes, the shovel is out; if the shovel is dead, maybe the snow won't come?
You'll also notice the accumulation after I was done shoveling. This is 6 minutes worth of pile up. I can't wait to shovel again today! And the five times after it!

You'll notice that the snow is piled about 1/4 of the way up the side of my neighbors house. My plan, if this continues, is to burrow into that pile and stay there until it melts. It'll save heat and hydro (which I'm going through like fucking water).

In November, when this shit first started, I was meticulous. The sidewalks were completely clear, and so was my driveway.

Now, whoever wants to walk past my house gets a path cleared the WIDTH OF MY SHOVEL. And I clear the driveway so that it will be relatively snow less a foot on either side of my truck, so I can gain momentum down the driveway to clear the giant snow hump that is my street.

We're hoping that this will ease up sometime by April.

So, who wants to move to Canada?

Spazoid apologizes for the above life type blog. He knows that nobody wants to hear about that shit, and they would rather hear humorous probably not true stories of comedic observation he usually writes about. He also apologizes for the horrible stupid gross out post that preceded this one. Spazoid is in a bit of a mood. Stay tuned for regularly scheduled programming.

Wow! I want to live in a place that gets lots of snow. So pretty :)

Yes, yes I know I'll probably start hating it but at the moment I'm jealous! You can ski too :(

Wow! Canada is worse than Sweden!

We haven't had a lot of snow in about a month... Thursday it was coming down a little, but it went away during the first few hours come Friday.

I only needed to shovel once this year!

But, it's still freezing cold! Bring on the summer!

LOL... this wasn't the only reason I didn't want to live in Canada! :-P

But really... THAT sucks. One more reason why I'm loathe to leave Los Angeles. The traffic sucks, but no freakin blizzards!

Being born and raised in a tropical country, I've learned to appreciate the cold.

But working out in the Gym would be a bitch.
