I've forgotten what COLD was like

We've been so spoiled since 2006 with mild winters. Then again, I had a car up until December of 2011, so maybe all this bus waiting is what makes me feel the cold more than years past.
I love snow, hate the cold. I like 1C weather and soft falling snow.
I do not like wind-so-cold-my-ass-goes-numb kind of cold.
I do not like hold-up-the-entire-line-to-get-on-the-bus-to-chat-about-Presto cold.
I do not like bus-is-not-on-time-because-the-driver-is-a-personal-GPS-for-you-as-you-try-to-figure-out-how-to-get-to-the-airport cold.
I do not like train-is-late-all-platform-shelters-are-full cold.
I do not like idle-the-train-with-the-doors-open-for-10-minutes-at-Pickering cold.
This week is gonna suck.

Feel free to share with me my 40-minute-walk-to-work-into-the-face-numbing-wind cold.

P.S. Except for the Grimsby P&R, GO Transit provides no shelters of any kind for Route 12 passengers.

I suggest a long coat, mittens and long johns (though I will be bringing out the snow pants soon).

But then again, I spent 9 years in Calgary and 4 years of going back at Christmas.

This ain't nothing compared to that.
