Do you want to build a snow ghost?

Like clockwork, the first week of March is when the novelty of winter officially wears off. It’s no longer charming. It’s a nuisance and I want it to go away.

Listen, I’m as much of a fan of four different seasons as the next person. But seriously… I’m ready for days where I can go outside in one layer. Heck, I’ll even settle for two layers. I don’t want to wear mittens or scarves. I don’t want to avoid running errands because it’s just too cold to go outside. I don’t want to white-knuckle drive while people slip and slide all over the place. In fact, this year for the first time ever, my windshield froze over WHILE I was driving. On the highway.

I’m done.

But today, winter tried to win me over again. A friend shared a post with me on Facebook. A snowy challenge was issued in a park located right behind my condo.

I was intrigued.

I called up my neighbour Caroline, and we decided to check it out for ourselves. We bundled up and went searching for snow ghosts.

That’s right. Snow ghosts.

And we found this sign.

"Your mission if you choose to accept it: go forth and multiply"

“Your mission if you choose to accept it: go forth and multiply”

And one lonely snow ghost.

One lonely snowghost.

One lonely snowghost.

So we obeyed the sign and went forth and multiplied.

Caroline was the brains behind our snowghost.

Caroline was the brains behind our snowghost.

Snowghost selfless are hard.

Snowghost selfless are hard.

And then there were two…

Not a great photo, but trust me, there's two.

Not a great photo, but trust me, there’s two.

Okay winter. I still don’t love you, but thank you for a fun evening adventure. I’ll put up with you for a little while longer, I suppose…
