Yup we had a bit of snow....

Where are we today ?
      Well we had some snow and wind overnight. And temps to day to -18c with a windchill -28 c (-18f) yep kinda chilly and we had 30 cm of snow (12 inches). So yes winter is still here.
      At 7:30 am neighbor called and asked to use the snow blower, no problem, I opened the garage door and he went nuts, wants to go to work. Hmm, we not going anywhere for a while. Schools everywhere in the area are closed, Universities too, advising people to stay off the roads.
neighbor coming for the snow blower
he cleared a path back home
looking out the kitchen window
returning the snow blower
        Now at least the sun is up so I bundled up to head out and remove some snow, toasty warm.
this neighbor had to get gas for his snow blower,
 took his snow mobile to the gas station
still a bit more to do
view out the dining room window this morning
         Now most driveways are cleared, the road have been ploughed and the sun is shining, looks almost wonderful but still cold.
       Suzie helping her Dad with a few things, hours on the phone with Bell Canada, trying to resolve issues. Customer service there is not great as most people know. Then back this afternoon she tried to set up a new email address for her dad, then I took over for another 3 hours (sure hate windows !) while she took her Dad to the hospital to visit her mom, and think most of the issues are taken care of. 
       Back home by 4:30 and we whipped up supper a tasty Basa fillet and a salad. In the oven, too cold to be outside with my Weber Q.
right out of the oven
so tasty one of our favorite meals
      This day almost done just a get together with her siblings for a plan of action now.
      Then home to crash and do it all over again tomorrow.
      Thanks for stopping by and if you have pics of warm sunny places would love to see them, kinda make us feel better even if we can't be there.

Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this past Winter.

  3. If that is a "bit" of snow, I'd hate to see what you'd call a heavy snow!!! :cO

  4. Oh my! All that snow sure doesn't look like a fun place to be for any period of time. Hopefully, it'll go away soon and you'll be able to get outside and play.

    1. I was playing outside today with the snow blower and the snow shovel, but would much rather be in shorts and t- shirts.

  5. How strange to see you in "covies" (coveralls) and a hooded jacket... hey... we're used to seeing you in that beat up cowboy hat... right now you sure don't look very southwestern ;-) but, heck... I'm here in Glen Rose wearing 2 wool sweaters, wool socks, jeans and still am cold. I better just look at you up there and quit complaining!

  6. This winter reminds you of what you have not missed these past several years. Keep warm. Hate to tell you this but it was 80 here in DHS today. I do enjoy looking at winter scenes though, while sitting here in the southwest US. Keep warm.

  10. And did your neighbor get out to go to work? You're a nice guy to loan out your snow blower. Way too much snow for me. Sure hope everything works out and you can enjoy sunshine and shorts again.

  12. Your right George...that is just a bit of snow, hardly enough to get worried about. After living 10 years up in Sudbury, I only got excited after it got to about 4 feet or so... stay warm!

  14. I think you definitely have some snow - I like the shot out the window. You probably didn't need it, but nice to get a little reminder of why you drive to the southwest for winter.
