Another Easter Card

It was -20°F when I got up this morning, and it's still there at 6:00p.m. EST. What must it be like to be homeless in such weather? I've read articles in years past about homeless people freezing to death as they tried to sleep. The good samaritans can't find them all, and amazingly, some refuse to come in out of the cold.

Only a couple of years ago, here in my suburb of Ste-Foy, a man was found living in a wooded area under a makeshift plastic tent, with a fire made of branches found on the ground. It was a freezing day such as today when police forcibly removed him to a hospital. He protested, saying he was okay. He was apparently schizophrenic, and had gone off his meds.

On a lighter note, here's another Easter card. Keep warm, and give thanks for your warm clothes and home.
