In case you haven’t noticed, winter has been super weird this year.
Canada is known far and wide for its notoriously brutal cold season. Normally when you step outside this time of year, it’s so frigid that the fluids in your eyes start to freeze. But in 2016, you’re lucky if your local skating rink is still frozen. Or at least, that’s the case in some parts of the country. As a result, Canadians are finding themselves utterly confused, wandering the streets without anywhere to go. Here’s how some Canadians are coping:
First off, everyone is freaking out
