First Snow

So here's me thinking that we weren't going to get any snow until December! On Tuesday night they forecast a snow storm coming in that was going to affect pretty much all of the Province except coastal areas which would receive a lot of rain instead. I was thinking, well it will be rain here then. Woke up Wednesday no sign of snow, drove to work and by 8.30am the white stuff was coming down!

They always say here, small flakes big amount of snow. These were small flakes and they kept on coming the whole day. The driving outside looked tricky to say the least. I ended up getting a lift home and leaving my car at work, just as well as the roads were chaos. I think in total there were 60 accidents on the roads. The main reason being that many people have not changed over their summer tires to winter ones (we changed ours at least 3 weeks ago). In total around 35cm of snow fell, it was pretty impressive. Yet as fast as it came it went, the temperatures are so mild again, it has been melting ever since. I think we are back up to double digits now.

Sorry I don't have any photos of the snow for you, but I haven't really had the time to take any shots until today, and now it really isn't worth the effort.

Robert had to drive home in that weather, he found it a little tense to say the least. His motto was to keep going no matter what because once you stop, you're stuck, well the ironic thing about his journey was that he very nearly did get stuck thanks to a snow plough who was wheel spinning in the middle of the road.

Nothing else to report, all very quiet here. Rob and I bought a Vacuum Cleaner this week it was on sale and a very good deal, so I have been making the most of it and cleaning the house from top to bottom. It's pretty hard to keep things clean when it gets to this time of year with all the weather and salt being tramps in through the house.
