Blizzard report

We survived yet another blizzard here in Eastern Canada. Over twenty-four hours of aggressive snow and howling wind. And miraculously the power stayed on! I was prepared, though, with jugs of water everywhere, a powerful rechargeable battery flashlight and a windup radio. Today all is quiet and white. The snowplow came this morning to clear my driveway and I just finished (as much as I can do right now) shoveling my walkway and car. So tomorrow I can go into town to school for an 8:30 am class. Most likely the traffic will be tight so I will allow extra time.

It�s a good thing I enjoy shoveling snow, living here. This time was especially delightful, the snow being light like confectioner�s sugar. Yum! Good for making snowmen (or is it now snowpersons?).

School was cancelled today, of course, but I didn�t have a class anyway. It�s nice to be home, to paint and fluff up my nest.

Keep warm and cozy sweet lady. We are getting lots of snow as well and the temps are very cold.
Hibernating by the fire and reading.
Love Jeanne
