Move North, they said. It’ll be an adventure, they said.

Today, this is happening . . .

I took that picture around 10 o’clock this morning and as I’m writing this it’s 5pm . . . we’ve just finished shoveling/blowing that same amount of snow yet again. Weather Network is predicting 25cm before the day is out (that’s close to a foot, for my American friends.) Now it is turning to rain. ish. Not quite sure what that is falling from the sky now or what it will be.

It was a fun Christmas, and I’m glad all of this waited until all of that was over with. But still, the coldest, snowiest months of the year up here are still ahead of us!

I will not panic. I have chocolate. And soup. And puzzles. I have a cozy ‘fire’ and Netflix and a guy who loves snow days (not the shoveling part so much. But at least he now has a new toy – his second-hand snowblower that I have christened ‘the little beast’, his truck being ‘The Beast’.)

With all this snow and cold weather, who knows. I may skate on a pond like I did in my childhood, I may try skiing, or snowshoeing, or take a ride on a snowmobile. Or I may just go into hibernation, anything is possible.

If you don’t hear from me for a long time, don’t worry … just send someone to dig me out in March. Thanks!
