I get it: it's Canada.
I get it: it's April.
In Canada, we get snow in April.
But in Ottawa, in the second half of April, after nearly a month of spring, the worst is usually over. The terms "snow storm" and "freezing rain" are almost never uttered.
By this time of the year, my summer tires are on my car, the winter tires safely stored until November. Most of the road salt has been washed off the roads and we don't fear ice.
Already, my winter coat and snow pants, and my big boots are packed in the basement. A spring jacket is all that I need.
This is bullshit.
I am NOT pulling my winter coat from storage.
