The Chicago Files



[I wrote this post a few years ago and thought I would retrieve it from the vault!  It is getting mighty chilly in many parts of the world, so perhaps this little laugh at my home and native land’s ‘lovely’ Canadian weather will warm us up a bit]!

– all pictures courtesy of Mo from the  Mo’s sense of humor is very similar to mine, and she shared these pictures with me knowing my Canuck sense of ‘ha ha’.  If there is one thing I know about Canadians, it is that we can collectively have a laugh at our own expense, all in the name of, “The Great White North”!

Please join me (and Mo, who lives in North Cyprus) with a little, “Canadian Content” to provide a little laugh to your day!


I am quite certain there are many Canadians (especially those who live in the Provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta) who are grinning from ear to frozen ear with this little montage.  I must confess that during many exasperatingly frigid Prairie winters I felt relieved at the ‘warmer’ temperatures when the -40C had left the region.  Interestingly enough, I found myself switching to a much lighter jacket at -10C, and left my woolly hat at home (I think these gentleman might be exaggerating just a tad, but not by much)!


If there will ever be an, “app” for this ghastly task, it will be invented by a Canuck; I have no doubt about this whatsoever!


I have witnessed this scenario many times! Heaven knows what other, ‘treasures’ Canadians find after the snow has subsided! You mean I actually OWN a car? I don’t remember that; perhaps it has something to do with the 6 months of winter in the Prairies!


Ah, the polite Canadians; requesting snow stoppage with not so much as a hint of irreverence! *grin*

Lest you think it is only our people who are polite, “PLEASE” take a gander at this:


Here’s one for those Canucks who have relatives who had the sheer and utter audacity to move to snow-less locales:


“Please” stay warm, my Canucks!
