New Picture

I thought after all the snow we had yesterday I should change the picture in my header. This is a picture of one of the displays at the retirement centre where my parents live.
We ended up with 22cm/9" of snow yesterday. Made for a fun drive to work this morning!!!

First Big Snowfall

We woke up to lots of snow falling this morning and it's still at it. The prediction is for 30cm/12" today. We went out to shovel around noon. It's the wet and heavy kind. Great for snowballs but terrible to shovel. It weighs a ton. There was easily 10cm/4" when we were shovelling. By the time we finished, where we started looked like it hadn't been shovelled. Sam was sure happy to go for his walk though.

We were going to get all the Christmas stuff down from the garage rafters today but I think it will have to wait until there is a little less snow.
