Respect

I write a lot about my students because they give me a lot of material to work with. As we finally embrace winter, the questions begin.

Is February warmer than now?

                                                 How long does winter last?

Is Montreal warmer than Toronto?

                                               I heard it only rains in Vancouver.

What is wind chill

                                            Do you just stay inside in winter?

I suppose I shouldn’t mock the students too hard. My biggest wonder is why didn’t they Google these things before they got here?  I am pretty sure the information is available.

Yesterday, the weather was a warm 6 degrees and sunny. The snow from the previous day had already melted and the wet reflections on the street were beautiful.  Unfortunately, I had to work and even my break was full of other duties.  I had no time to go outside and enjoy it.  I did note, however, that some of my students were wearing boots more suited to snow-maggedon than yesterday’s balmy temperatures.

So what was Friday’s Perfect Moment?  Quite simply, my appreciation of their respect for winter.
