Mika and Yu-jin are looking out of the window and talking about the weather. They are new to Manitoba and this is their first winter in Canada.
|Mika:||Snow again! I’m quite ticked off about shoveling day after day.|
|Yu-jin:||Yeah, indeed! Every time I see snow fall, my heart sinks.|
|Mika:||The weather has been nice for a few days last week, and I felt like spring was around the corner. But now, here we are freezing in -30 with windchill. Mother Nature seems to be playing tricks on us.|
|Yu-jin:||You know people say that March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb. Even in March we can’t expect a spring with flower blossoms like in our countries. That will be three more months away, they say.|
|Mika:||Oh no … Back home, spring fever runs throughout the country once we get into March. I miss that!|
