Well....

I asked for snow and BOY did I get snow! Who even knows the accumulation at this point, and we are supposed to get another 15-20cms by the end of it today. Everything is shut down in Halifax as the wind is sooo strong we are under a blizzard warning, and the RCMP are asking people to stay off the roads. Of course having a husband who is incapacitated is just perfect on a day like today with huge amounts of shovelling to do. I have made it from the front door to the driveway so far and am now in enjoying a cup of tea. The driveway will get done a bit at a time, and that's that. The kids are soo excited although with the wind it's not quite as enjoyable. A perfect day for fort making, movie watching and popcorn eating.

I'd post some pics, but the memory stick is missing from the camera.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Colin and Tracey from next door who helped me dig out. Amazing how fast a snowblower and an extra set of hands makes a big job go.
