A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood
Today it is - after we received 50 - yes 50cm - of snow in the 24 hours from Friday afternoon to Saturday afternoon! Biggest snow storm of the winter so far. Needless to say we did not do much - apart from peer out the windows saying "OMG look at that bloody snow - its going sideways!" and similar constructive comments. Our neighbour has a snowblower and loves to use it - just rubbing our noses in it we reckon!! - but he was out there twice yesterday - can you tell! As I was taking the photo he was getting ready to fire it up again and so I suppose I should show willing and get out there with my shovel. I do have an open house this afternoon so will have to venture out eventually. At least the sun is shining today. What is strange to me is that places like Calgary at the foot of the Rockies in Alberta where I would expect there to be snow, don't have a snowflake. I just saw a report on the news this morning and I thought it was old report from the summer, but no they don't have an iota of the white stuff. Apparently, they are running out of gas too - what is the world coming to?
