It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... - <I don't have nerves of steel, I have a heart that feels>

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
Guys, I think it's officially winter. I live in a climate that gets MAYBE a few centimetres of snow, for about 2 days every winter. Well, in the past 24 hours, it's snowed 3 FEET. And there's no end in sight! The roads that are still open are almost too dangerous to drive on...the freeway? Empty. I was only out there because I had to work and was driving home afterwards. They even sent most of the staff home early so they could drive during daylight, but they had the essential staff stay, of which I am one, so I wasn't so lucky. Matt picked me up and while he was waiting for me he shoveled out all my co-workers cars who had been parked there all day. What a sweetie, eh? It's a complete blizzard out there. The wind is blowing like crazy, and because we live out in farm country, on the prairie, the wind is worse. Matt's car is actually stuck in the driveway (He's out there right now putting chains on it) and when I opened the door to get out, the snow was so deep that it came inside the car when I opened it! Matt was in boots, so he tried to give me a piggy-back ride to the door, but I just made a run for it. Seriously, I feel like I'm at the North Pole!

I don't think Matt's going to be able to go in to work tomorrow...Most of the roads are closed, pretty much all the schools are closed, buses aren't running, etc. I have the day off, so I don't need to go anywhere, thank God. We're supposed to get another foot of snow overnight. This is NOT normal. At least we still have electricity (knock wood). There are about 10-20,000 people in the area without it...

Poor Matt's probably freezing! I'm gonna put the tea kettle on so he can have some hot cocoa when he comes in.







Oh yeah, and did I mention I LOVE IT?


I am : cold cold

Aw, yay! Love snow. I'm going to Illinois this weekend and it's supposed to have snow showers there... I hope it isn't too much, since I have to drive home Sunday. But maybe I'll get some little flakes.

We had a 30% chance of snow Thanksgiving weekend. It rained instead. I'm still hoping for snow before Christmas, but, not holding out much hope.
