The wind is howling, slamming the tree branches against the windows, unceremoniously announcing the arrival of yet another winter storm. The weather channel is splashed in red weather warnings adorned in many adjectives, not of which inspire me for my morning commute. Such is life in Canada. I will leave a little earlier and pay homage to my four wheel drive as I maneuver my way to work. I have safe transportation, and for that, I am truly grateful.
