These may or may not shock you

After barely surviving that horrifying week-long snowfall, we now enter into the era of what scientists call “The Great Hangover.” But never fear, the grumpy snow always disappears! And as the snow evaporates, it slowly reveals some amazing hidden treasures forgotten by time! Here are some items people can expect to find under the melted snow:
The “I’ve had enough” toques
There are three relatable situations when these sad toques are left behind and dumped in the cold winter. Firstly, it could be that you are waiting for the bus and the bus never shows up… twice! Secondly, it can be when you are in the middle of a shovelling-crisis, clearing the nasty snow and suddenly, snow falls again… but this time it’s bringing some of its thick and slushy friends! You just can’t beat them, so you slam your fleece helmet as a sign of surrender. And finally, thirdly, it could be the situation where you just can’t drive your car and go into the road because the struggle is real in climbing up from your steep and icy neighbourhood street. Revving your engine is just useless, so you open your window and throw your toque.
The forgotten meat or veggies
One of the thriftiest ways to save some electricity is to use winter’s freezing temperatures as a natural and organic fridge. However, as snowfall gets worse and worse, you tend to forget your red meats and green stuffs. Eventually, they will get eaten by your pet or an early rising bear, and worst of all, you are not going to remember forgetting them.
That Starbucks drinks
Without a doubt, you can find a lot of these items when the snow melts, especially that one drink that has a lot of extras in it. Like the venti iced caramel macchiato with ten pumps of vanilla, extra whole milk, extra caramel drizzle, extra mocha drizzle, and extra whip, well done. I just made my article 23 words longer.
The usual: dog poops
Shout out to those irresponsibly entitled dog owners who rejoice when winter arrives, as they see it as a freedom from the very vital responsibility of picking up their dog’s shit. Just a little foot sweep and, poof, their job is done. That may be okay for them… but it’s not okay for the people in their neighbourhood. As a matter of fact, it’s illegal. Dog pee-flavoured shaved ice is acceptable, though.
