I was sent this via email today. Published now with permission.
I saw something this morning that either was pure optimism or really defined and said something about Albertans. With temperatures around -27 c as I passed Starbucks this morning they were setting up their patio chairs and tables outside and I know that when I go by there tonight on my way home they will be full. It had never struck me how unique this was ( I was going to say strange ) until today when I was talking to someone in Vancouver which is around the zero mark and they said it was so cold there were no patios open!
All a matter of perception apparently! Funny!
My thoughts are with those of you in Edmonton who continue to visit here.
