And so it begins!

My view this morning
Was I right or was I right? Today, the sky opened up and dumped an unexpected amount of powder on us. And as much as it’s a real chore to trudge through, boy, does it ever look pretty! Tucked away in my cozy office I can’t help but admire the early morning crew kicking tufts of dust from their path and the gridlocked cars moving at a snail’s pace. Not that I’m reveling in their frustration – but it is winter after all! This is what it’s supposed to look like. If it’s going to be this bloody freezing, there might as well be some snow spit out into the mix.

Some great temperature appropriate songs for your winter wandering today are:

  1. Winter Wonderland – Phantom Planet: This amusing hipster spin on a traditional holiday carol will keep your spirits up and touque bobbing.
  2. It’s Christmas All Over Again – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Tom! Sing it to me while sprint to catch the bus, tripping over my mitten strings and inappropriately-sized snow boots.
  3. It’s Christmas Time – Diana Krall: Krall’s jazzy purr will lull you into a yuletide trance on your commute home tonight, making the whole experience semi-worthwhile.
Good luck!
