Winter Storm

We had a snow storm today, with thunder and lightening and winds blowing huge flakes around. I spent the morning lying in bed watching it all fall outside our window, lunch time building a snow cave and pouring boiling maple syrup onto the snow to eat, and the afternoon flying down the big basin in the park using a plastic bag, and sometimes Mark’s back. I have some big snow boots now so my feet were toasty warm. I got icicle dreads in my hair, and a face full of snow, but tobogganing is so fun! The photos are a bit fuzzy but you can see how much snow there was outside our bedroom door.

We have our tree up now too. It is a little bit of a Charlie Brown one, but smells lovely and Christmasy.

I think (touch wood) we might have a white Christmas!

Greetings from Canada

It snows (or flurries really) almost everyday.  On Sunday tiny round balls were mixed with rods of snow – I haven’t worked out where they fit on this snow guide:

Some make better snowballs than others.
