I am finally here! Just as I suspected, there is a SHITLOAD of snow, and the temperature is well below zero.

When I left my home yesterday, it had been close to 15 degrees above zero. (Celcius for all your Fahrenheit folks) It was glorious.

I wore flip flops all the way to the hotel in Montreal last night.

I knew, however, that my mother would murder me if I got off the airplane without wearing shoes, so I sucked it up, put on socks and shoes, and suffered through it.

Let it be known that I DO NOT wear shoes. Or socks for that matter. I loathe them.

I put on my sandals in February and wear them until approximately the middle of November, sometimes December if I am lucky. Not so much this year.

There are snow drifts.

There are skidoos out.

There are people wearing *gasp* winter coats, hats, and mittens. And don't forget the shoes. Dammit, I think I saw boots too.

I will wear socks and shoes until I leave, just so that my mother continues to feed and love me.

Once I get back to Montreal however, the shoes are off. The toes come back out.

I will supply some photographs tomorrow. Maybe I'll send some squalls and blizzards your way.

I hate shoes too whick is why I have an ugly yet comfortable pair of Crocs that I wear everywhere that I can get away with it. I also hate snow because I'm a total wimp that hates to be cold. Glad you are back safe and sound.

I'm with you on sandals. I wear them for as long as I can tolerate them. I'm also barefoot around my house most of the time.

Big Orange: I've never been to Florida, so I guess I don't know what I'm missing. :)

dirty: I can't wear Crocs, most of the people around me do, but I just can't bring myself to wear them. I am not a total wimp, and LOVE the show, and I also prefer to be cool, not necessarily cold, but I don't do well in the heat!

Chris: I HATE shoes, I've been wearing them since Friday and it's killing me. Socks, hate 'em too. I am usually barefoot, and strangely, my feet rarely get cold.
