I'll start off by saying that we could have written a lot more than 11 points. Let's be real: Winter in this city is a frozen hell. A destitute wasteland of black ice and ditches of OC Transpo busses. I'd like to wish Ottawa's 2016/2017 winter season a warm, "Au revoir." Well, if it doesn't come back with a vengeance like always.

So, here's hoping for brighter springs, less foggy glasses, and accessible driveways. Here's 11 things we won't miss about winter in Ottawa:

The sunlight

Wait, what sunlight, sorry.

Sidewalk curbs

Mounds of wet snow and puddles (aka my jeans' worst nightmare).

Sidewalks, in general

Salt stains on my pants are fun.

Not having an excuse to come to work late ain't good, though.

The icicles on my hair and eyelashes

When your trip to the OC Transpo bus stop becomes a Siberian expedition.

Black ice

Always a fun time on the Queensway.

Scraping off this in the morning.

That's my arm exercise for the week.

The commute

K, we still gotta take the OC Transpo, but let's talk: How much worse does it really get when it comes to January. Thought so.

via @tonyingcky

Or when you think it's spring for two days...

via @lucypaself

But it's really just winter taking a power nap.

Here's looking at today.

Oh and this.

Thank you again for ruining my effort and hard work.
