It just snow and snowed all day long! Needless to say the washer and dryer never arrived.
I just had to post some pictures of my afternoon walk with Jenny.
Look at that face - within a few minutes of starting out she was covered in snow. Jenny just loves to be out in the snow. And the snow was the soft and light and fluffy kind of snow that we rarely get here. It doesn't often snow here - I don't even own a pair of boots. I was out walking in my running shoes. It was a good thing it was the fluffy - dry snow. Usually the snow we get is wet and messy.
This is a picture of my neighbourhood today! It was quite the snow day. I like this picture you can really see how heavy the snow was falling.
Jenny - looking through the bridge railings - up to her chest in snow.
We returned home to find Jim walking down the hill. The highway was closed for a good part of the day. I got a number of calls from random cell phones he borrowed to say he was still stuck and pretty unhappy. By the time the road had opened around 1 PM it was snowing so hard he decided to leave the car and take the little commuter bus back. He left at 8:30 AM for a 40 minute trip to the bank and back - which turned into a five hour marathon and a his car now sitting in the parking lot at Safeway.
He is very happy to be home! Here he is in Eric's old coat from Grade 8 -- 1994. Bought for Eric to wear in Cranbrook and kept for Jim to wear at Andrew's hockey games. We don't even own winter coats!
Jenny just loves the snow so we played outside throwing the ball for her - which was hard for her to find in the deep snow.
