Grelotter (greh-lot-ay) means “to shiver.” Now that it is December, colder temperatures are the norm. So is shivering, unfortunately. As a Canadian, I’ve had my share of cold winters. One of the times that I was coldest was during a class trip to Quebec City. Although it was early spring, a storm roared in. Snow and ice pellets pounded against us stinging our faces. It was like being sandblasted. Look at the crazy angle of the icicles! The students who wore ballet flats shivered most of all. Brrr.
