Today it was 16C outside, or so the weather app boasts (I think it was probably closer to 12C, but still, it’s early February and it’s not -30C like it should be).
I will miss you, Lake Ontario, for sending your warm vibes northward and heating up this city, for sending all the snow and cold to Buffalo (sorry, Buffalo). No snow is my kind of winter. I will miss you, Toronto, for your temperate Decembers, your snow that descends with purpose but dissipates quickly. I still haven’t bought new winter boots. Into February I’m still wearing shoes. And today, thanks to climate change (sorry, planet), no coat.
