Do you remember where you were living during winter in 2015? Maybe your were fortunate enough to be overseas! But what we experienced that winter was ridiculous. The city was blasted with icy winds, hail, downpours that could double as a natural disaster and frigid temperatures day and night. And to make matters worse, we didn’t even have the mild days in between the horror to buffer the blow.
The freezing conditions were bad enough, but then everyone had to talk about it. All. The. Time. It’s all this city and its fair citizens could bring to the conversation table, complaining about the weather, begging for summer to come and making tentative plans to move to Queensland. It was so bad that we broke records! By June, we recorded the coldest start to winter
in 65 years. And then in July, we did it again, with the coldest July
day in 20 years. Oh, and again, when we woke up on July 19 to the coldest morning
in 18 years. .
At this point, winter became a joke. An arctic blast
swooped into our dear city and took just about everything with it. We were hit with sub-zero temperatures, rain, hail, and blizzards, which really should belong somewhere else. Like a movie, or Sydney. People were miserable, wet and some even reconsidering their stance on whether climate change is actually bad. .
