Winter Has Arrived in Nova Scotia, Sort Of.
Tuesday January 16th 2007, 9:59 am

After listening to the Environment Canada’s weather forecast in Ontario and the United States, which was supposed to move here yesterday to start our winter in Nova Scotia, I was expecting frigid temperatures and lots of snow. Fortunately for us, it was a non-event. We did get some snow but due to mild temperatures, fog and drizzle this morning, much of it has melted. The temperature is still 2C, but it is expected to get colder later today and much colder tomorrow, so it will be a good day to stay home and hibernate until the next mild day.

Even though tomorrow is our 37th wedding anniversary, we will be postponing our plans of a restaurant and a movie until Thursday, which will be much milder. I am a wimp when it comes to cold weather, so if I don’t have to go out in it, I won’t. Hopefully, the frigid temperatures will last only one day. With so much melting going on now, it will be very slippery when it gets colder.

I watched some of the Golden Globe awards last night, in between watching 24 on another channel. I enjoy this particular awards show more than the others, so I didn’t want to miss it. I thought that Sacha Baron Cohen was hilarious, and am waiting for his movie, Borat, to go to DVD to rent it. I saw only a few of the movies which won awards, so I hope to see Dreamgirls this week, and the others when they come out on DVD. I already saw and enjoyed Thankyou for Smoking and The Devil Wears Prada.

American Idol, Season 6 starts on CTV and ABC tonight but I can’t stand the audition parts of this show, as I find them ridiculous. I start watching and enjoying this show as soon as they get to the final 12 contestants. I hardly miss an episode until they get to the winner. I prefer Canadian Idol better than the American version, mostly because I prefer our judges, which are more professional and interesting. Our show usually starts sometime in the spring. I never get tired of these types of shows and based on the number of people watching them, neither do most people.

Have a good day,
