Government StupidityThe Prime Minister of Canada prorogued parliament. Basically, because he tried to bully the opposition parties, they began to fight back by trying to form a coalition. The coalition would have been able to over throw the government. So the Prime Minister suspended parliament, rather than face a non-confidence vote, only 1 week into the post election session.
RecessionWith the general economic conditions around the world, Canada's Central Bank finally said the "R" word, and dropped interest rates. I will have to wait until later to cuss on this topic.
WeatherWe went from 10°C above seasonal to 10°C below seasonal in 24 hours. I don't mind -25°C weather but only after I've had a couple days at -10°C and a couple at -15°C. Also, on the night of the moon perigee, we had overcast blowing crap as the weather fronts moved through. So I didn't get a chance to try the obligatory full moon pix and now have to wait for another ~16 years. I forgot about the perigee until I started scanning articles on New Scientist web site.
When the weather was above seasonal, it was messy and slushy outside, so I wasn't super amused. I want snow, but I want it to be -10°C with 30cm of snow, not +1°C with freezing rain, and then a melting mess. I guess I'm just never satisfied.
PS: as I'm writing this post, it is -30°C with the effective temperature hovering around -38°C (-36°F), it should be -15°C (~5°F).
