Well, it is Canada, and February, but I've had enough already!

Then, while surfing YouTube I fell on this. I love the song but never knew its origins. Apparently it is from an animated British Christmas film called, "The Snowman". The animation is reminiscent of Tin-Tin. They fly over the Sussex Downs, the Royal Pavilion and the amusement park on the Brighton Pier. Now I am all cheered up, and will look out the window at the falling snow with a cheerier face. Hey! The sun has come out! BONUS!

We're walking in the air
We're floating in the moonlit sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly

I'm holding very tight
I'm riding in the midnight blue
I'm finding I can fly so high above with you

Far across the world
The villages go by like dreams
The rivers and the hills
The forests and the streams

Children gaze open mouthed
Taken by surprise
Nobody down below believes their eyes

We're surfing in the air
We're swimming in the frozen sky
We're drifting over icy
Mountain floating by

Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep
Arousing of a mighty monster from its sleep

We're walking in the air
We're dancing in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly

This has not been the winter to bring about rave reviews.

At least our weather warning is over. We had a tree come down yesterday. No damage firewood.

how sweet. sure brought a smile to my face! It was almost 80 here today, but we're back down to 50 tonight. Lots of grass fires, not much rest. I needed the smile!

Thanks for the last two posts, I always enjoy a good bit of music. Both very talented singers.
