‘I’m dreaming of a white Christmas’…
We got absolutely walloped with snow yesterday.
Normally this much snow isn’t such a huge issue. I think, though, the fact that it all fell at once, during a 12 hour period, was a little odd and really had people ‘up in arms’ so to speak. You could see grass prior to this storm, that’s how little snow there was on the ground. Now there’s so much snow in my driveway I couldn’t even make it through shoveling half of my driveway before I just gave up last night. I’m just hoping, dreaming, wishing and praying that someone comes with a snowblower today to help me out, otherwise it’ll be a few days before my driveway gets fully shoveled.
On the plus side, thanks to this winter blast it really is feeling a lot like Christmas in this neck of the woods, which I am not mad at. People are cross country skiing down the roadways, there’s a snowman on every block and the neighbours are all putting on their masks and going out to help other neighbours stuck in the roadway as they try to get out to get to work. (It took one individual over an hour and eight neighbours helping to shovel a path for their tires for him to get off our street yesterday)
Winter solstice has come and gone and now the days will consistently get longer though to June. I cannot begin to explain to you how excited that makes me. Extra daylight is always welcome in my books.
Well, it’s time to stop putting off my work and get back to it.
