Snow Day

Today was to be a Red Hat outing to Kitchener-Waterloo for the ChristKindl Market. Now in its 10th year I have gone a number of times and enjoyed it every time. Think it is an excellent use of the City Hall and suitable for the city that also has a huge Octoberfest event.

Nature had it's own plans however.
This was taken out my front window. No buses running today but managed to get a car going by to show the size of the drift behind it.





This is my back yard. Anyone for a swing? This is my Son's favorite spot in the summer.














For the first time ever this season, our temperature is colder than Edmonton - just by 1 degree at this time of day. Track that weather as my Sister's family are there. She ususally spends half the year there but this year she is in Florida. Gloating. Enjoying her Christmas decorations while wearing shorts and shirt sleeve tops. Swimming. Outside. And calling people up North to let them know.

I have a nice warm house, work to do, lots of knitting, lots of food - including "good" food, so other than being disappointed I'm not getting to K-W, today will be very good. Do hope the roads are clear by late this afternoon as Son is suppose to be heading back.

Did get a project done for the Red Hats but since they were for girfts, pictures will have to wait.

You have way more than we do .... can keep it too! Not much snow on the ground, but it has made my drive sucky a couple of days this week.... taking well over an hour to get to Barrie these days.
