Oh Internetz, up here in the Great White North we are getting one heck of a wintry blast today!
It's currently -15 or -28 with the windchill, which, as my father would say, "would freeze the balls off a brass monkey!" Tis true.
The roads are a mess with snow squalls and blowing snow and I am grateful that both Irish Boy and I made it home from our respective places o' biz safely.
Two of our three dogs are currently giving us the evil eye for making them go out there amid the snow drifts. The third is wagging his tail after a romp in the white stuff that he loves. I can sense that my two 'divas' are going to be a right pain in the ass for the next couple of days when I attempt to get them outside to pee.
But it's nice to be home with the gas fireplace roaring and enjoying the view of winter's splendour from our windows.
Which leads me to a question for you. With this crazy cold weather my hands are so dry and chapped, I'm dying here! So I need your help Internetz. Do you have a particular hand cream that you swear by in the winter months? Or for my friends in warmer climates (henceforth known as "You lucky buggers!"), do you have a brand that works well? I've tried a few different brands from the drugstore but nothing is really providing any satisfactory relief.
So help a freezing Canuck out! Post your favourite hand lotions below.
Thanks - and stay warm!
