Dear person in charge of weather. I urge you to provide Montreal with some sunshine and warmer temperatures soon. I simply can't take more snow. There's an unwelcome and powerful force within me that bubbles up in volcano-esque rage when I see snowflakes in the air. I want to be able to leave my gloves at home, I want to not have tears running down my face from the cold, I want to have to wear sunglasses everyday. Please let it be spring soon! In the meantime, I dream of the pink blossoms at Kottbusser Tor and spring in Berlin - I'll be there to catch it in two months.
