Who was buried in snow to his neck
When they said, "Are you friz?"
He replied, "Yes I is -
But we don't call this cold in Quebec."
It is freakin' frackin' cold out! It's been a mean winter this year, it truly has. Again
the temp has dropped to a brutal -30. The sky is clear, blue, and the sun shines
brightly. There is no warmth though. The streets are empty and quiet. The wind
cuts like a knife and leaves you praying for those hot, sweaty summer days.
I miss those days of laying down in the cool grass while feeling the heat of the
sun on my skin. I miss those days that I turn to the wind and allow it to wash
over me, much unlike now where I shield myself from it for it is my enemy.
At first I thought taking photos on a day like this was just ludicrous, but then I
realized that it's days like this that our fashion style is stumped the most. You have
no idea how many layers I am wearing! Under all this wool (a must) I am bundled
under fleece leggings, a skirt slip, leg warmers, a t-shirt, and a long sleeve shirt.
I have to admit, I have been watching the Discovery Channel's new mini show
Klondike and it got me thinking about winter fashion. I was rather excited when
this show was aired for I had read a book about the Yukon gold rush and was
very intrigued by this fascinating world of extreme weather, breathtakingly
beautiful scenery, big dreamers, and unlawful men. When people traveled to the
Yukon, gold pushing them forward, one of the biggest killers was the weather.
Victorian women soon realized that the fashion in style at the time would not
suffice in a land governed by Mother Nature. Now, I'm not about to compare
myself to the pioneer woman of the north, but I did have them in mind. So
when I got dressed I looked into my closet and picked the warmest pieces.
Add a belt to keep some what of a lady-like shape and we're good to go!
