It’s important that during the holiday season, you take a moment to be grateful. This Christmas I am grateful for the internet. Without the internet, I would have to get my weather updates from a real, live meteorologist. And, if that were the case, I would be in jail right now for assault. I am grateful that the internet maintains a healthy distance between me and whoever is predicting Whitehorse’s temperature trends. I am also grateful that my computer screen is already broken, so punching it makes little difference to the computer – but gives me great amounts of satisfaction.
After an oh so little winter break, cold weather is once again on the horizon. I am fairly certain this weather is 100% my fault. For starters, my first ever printed article appeared in Up Here magazine – the story is, of course, about riding at -40.
Secondly, my husband’s photo made it to the top 5 of the Skookum Brand photo competition. It is a picture of me riding in -40.
You can vote for his picture (#5 titled: Riding at 40 Below) here: https://www.facebook.com/questions/400877199992741/ and save me from having to buy a last minute Christmas gift.
It appears as though my worldwide popularity has an inversely proportional relationship to the temperature. Which, obviously, makes me secretly crave insanely cold weather. I’m not saying that I have the ability to control the temperature, but basically I think I have the ability to control the temperature. I didn’t have the same advantages as Storm, as my parents weren’t able to send me to Professor X’s secret mutant academy, so I think my powers just aren’t as obvious or easily controlled. This is a good thing, because there’s a 100% chance that I would have joined Magneto and his team of villains.
In any case, I apologize for the cold, and if we can get to around -80 C, I bet I’ll be as famous as Lindsey Lohan.
