It's official, a snow day! All the schools are closed! The rain is just turning to a rain-snow mix, and the wind is howling. 31 F.

I'm glad it got there for you. I gave it a good shove. Since yesterday was the last scheduled day for me before the break I can go out in the sunshine and get things done today. It sure was a quick storm. :)

Holy blizzard. We had 11 inches of snow overnight with very high winds and it is still snowing and blowing. I made out some bills this morning and went out to put them in the mail box. I took the snow brush ( the kind to clear off the car windows) with me to clean off the mail box. I just heard on the radio that there is a semi truck that is jacked knifed on one of our major highways and the road will be closed for a long time (hope no one got hurt). DH just went out to start clearing off the driveway and sidewalks ( he also helps some of the neighbors too).

What? You are not camped at the airport by now to make sure you get there in time for your flight?

Would love to, but due to the blizzard, we wouldn't be able to find the airport! And all flights were cancelled. Hopefully, they'll be back on track when it's time to leave!

Thanks, PF! At least the blizzard had the decency to do its thing before we were to leave. I feel really bad for all the folks who had their flights cancelled today. It's still really nasty out, with a 2 hour school delay already announced for tomorrow.

We had a good snowfall and then it rained. It stayed around freezing, so lots of slush. They are predicting 20 cm (8 inches) of snow starting sometime tomorrow. I'm glad I have almost all my shopping done. Just need to get in some soft drinks and Stirling has promised to walk to the depanneur (convenience store) and get them. It's a block away.
