From White sink to white out!!
This is my street this morning!! Such a mess it was today.
Poor Jim, here he is trudging up the driveway to do some shoveling. It was his birthday yesterday and I worked an 8 hour shift yesterday - as he was going off in the morning to make pickled salmon. I promised that we would go out for a nice birthday dinner after we both got home. Instead it started snowing - the roads were a mess and it took me 40 minutes to drive 300 metres (and that was just a small part of the drive home) Both of us got home safely but there were many, many cars in the ditch that we passed along the way.
The snow flakes were huge!! It snowed from about 11 AM yesterday until about 8 PM today -- and now it is raining!! So the forecast is now for 100-150 mm of rain where we live. So there is now a flood warning.
So today I made a Christmas stocking. It isn't finished yet, - I just need to sew in the lining and then put the binding on.
I had my Secret Santa gift all wrapped and ready to post as I was coming home from work yesterday - I was going to stop in at the post office - just a quick in and out of the Caulfield exit - and there was an accident and the road was a disaster. So --- best laid plans..... I think we will be able to get out tomorrow once the rain washes away most of the snow. The traffic all along the highway today was at a stand still. Jim walked up to take a look and he said people were just sitting in their cars watching movies on their portable DVD players -- LOL. I guess those DVD players can be a good idea!!
Jenny is quite enjoying the snow and has had a very good day out playing in it.
I can't believe it has been a week since I posted. I worked 4 days this week - which could account for my blog absence. I have been popping in and out when I get a chance. Happy Monday!!
