Since landing in Ottawa one week ago, the weather has gone from positively balmy to freezing. My running route which was clear is now completely snowed over. Further, what once was mild, perfect running weather is now minus 28 with windchill: gym weather. I’ve been out/about during two snowstorms. I even came to town still donning my fall trench. This week’s more appropriate ‘Wintery’ outfits have been procured from the depths of my highschool closet.
It’s like Winter finally woke up. This is the Ottawa I know. Those snow tires were waiting for this. They are excited.
