Well, it is almost 8 a.m. and apparently it's been snowing for most of the night (I went to a party and came home and it wasn't then). I looked out and more snow, and I can't even hear the plows. I do know it is a federal holiday. So I guess I'll stay home this morning (my only plan was to go to an exercise class), at least until the plows come through!

Overcast, but comfortable enough to have the windows open halfway. Little bits of peekaboo blue, I hope it clears up some.

-15C (5F)on my thermometer, Environment Canada says -22C (-7.6). Its STILL snowing. My neighbour is out with his snowblower right now so I'll wait til he's done to go out and check on Mom's house. The furnace part STILL isn't in. EEK. The pics are front and back yard. Front yard - snow over my knees on the way to fill the bird feeders hanging in that tree. That was last week. I suspect its nearly mid thigh now. The other is our back deck.

Lake Tahoe set a record of 59 degrees F. today. It is in the 50's at my house today. I will share and send some to anyone that wants warmer temps.

LB, where is that snow you promised!?

Kur, Rain is simply "Liquid Sunshine."

We had freezing rain overnight. It allowed me an extra day to give antibiotics to work. I've been suffering from the worst sinus infection. :(
