Still c-c-cold!

Let me start this post with a couple of gratuitous pictures of my boys. Here is Jules rocking the mic on his toy piano...

... and Oscar showing us one of his lovely smiles.

We spent a good portion of last weekend at Alex's stepdad's chalet in the Eastern Townships (almost exclusively indoors, given the very cold weather). Since I finally had my DSLR camera back, I tried to get some decent photos of the family.

A magical discovery for Jules: raisin bread!
It's been bitterly cold for most of the last couple of weeks. I am always a bit surprised when I see the sheer number of really cool cars being winter driven these days. I have seen several Audi R8's like this one, and a couple of Ferrari FF's (as mentioned in a previous post). A minute before snapping this (poor quality) picture of the R8, I saw a Porsche 991 Turbo S. When you think about it, it's not terribly surprising to see that people are driving these all-wheel-drive cars in winter...

... However, the most surprising car I have spotted this winter has got to be this Ferrari F12. It was -20 degrees when I took these pictures the other day! Needless to say, I am very impressed with this car's owner's decision to keep driving the car, even in the middle of winter. This is surely the same car I spotted between Christmas and New Year's day. Very cool!
