Warning: Cold Weather Alert In Effect In Montreal

And it's only getting worse.
Warning: Cold Weather Alert In Effect In Montreal

It just never ends. I keep getting fooled.

Every morning I wake up and my brain tells me: "It's the end of April, you don't need a winter jacket." And like an idiot, I walk out of my apartment without checking the weather and I get hit in the face with -4°C temperatures.

I was willing to put up with it so far. But this morning I had enough, something has to be wrong. And would't you know it, I walked into the office this morning and was greeted with a nice weather alert.

It turns out there is cold air mass over Quebec and it's going to be sticking around for the next week. Temperatures are going to be well below the average and will even be below freezing at night ... F#@%!

To give you an idea of how bad things are, we should be enjoying a 15°C day at this time of the year. But instead we're sitting here hoping it doesn't snow in the next few days. Fingers crossed.
