Snow, snow, and more snow…

We just got through the second snow storm in Ottawa this autumn (we still have a few days before winter officially starts…). The first one dumped about 20cm and we got 37cm yesterday. We may actually have a white Christmas this year!

What that means, is a lot of shoveling. It took me 1 1/2 hours to clear out the snow so I could take the minivan out this morning. And I had to do that because the school buses were canceled, which meant I had to drive my daughter, and her friends, to school. Fortunately, the neighbour brings them back in the afternoon.

And this time, I did take pictures that I posted on Flickr. You should also see a sample on the right, in “My Flickr Photos”.

Now, I have to figure out if I dig the car out of the snow or if I just wait for March to come around…

Dry toast and snow…

I have been accused today that my latest postings have been very dry. My accuser (Jason) also said that he much preferred non-work related posts. Well…I guess I just had to do something about that!

I just wish these things came a lot easier. But today, there is not much I can do. The weather outside is dreadful – but don’t worry, I will not torture you with my singing voice – so I’m staying inside and letting it snow for a little while more! Environment Canada (or whatever the department is named now) is predicting 30-55cm of snow today and overnight. That’s a lot of snow coming and quite a lot is already on the ground. I should probably go outside and move a bit of that snow around, but it’ll probably all fill again soon. I’ll probably just go take pictures.

In the mean time, it’s hot cocoa and movies with the family!
