Walking in a winter wonderland!

Well, we woke up this morning to snow! The promised front came through last night, and it was actively snowing, with quite a bit of the white stuff on the ground.

We elected to venture out to do some shopping, and to brave the public transport. And I wanted a chance to wear my wonderful new blue boots!

But first, a picture to prove that I actually experienced the snow in person . . .

Photobucket

Got to love winter coats, which make everyone look fat!

By the time were were going to head home, the snow had been falling steadily for hours, and even my FIL conceded this was actually a snow storm.  I was in seventh heaven!

Actually, I was less cold in the snow storm than I had been when the pic above was taken in early afternoon, and snow is fun to walk in - it's light and fluffy and it looks so cool!

I was even inspired to try my hand at a little video when we got back to the house . . .



And now, the fire is going, the boys are watching a hockey game and telling the players what to do (in French!) and I'm about to settle in for a few hours of writing!

Life is good!

Isn't snow awesome?! We were lucky enough to have a little bit of snow on my daughter's birthday this year, and she and my little cousins were outside during her birthday party, running up and down the street in it. Considering how bastard cold we are, we'd damn well better get snow sooner this winter!

...I have 'Let It Snow' stuck in my head now.

Snow is freakin' amazing!!

Of course, I say this now, deep in the first blush of new love and being, up til I arrived in Montreal 6 days ago, a snow virgin.

By the end of the month, I'm likely to be saying something more along of the lines of "Get me the fuck out of here, I am sick to death of this white fuckin' shit!"

It's been very exciting tonight - I've dashed over to the kitchen window to see the guy who plows the driveways, and to see the city snow plow pass as well.

But it's started to rain, so by tomorrow, our lovely 15 - 20cm of snow will mostly be all gone . . . until the next snow storm!

The only problem with snow is when it all turns to ice and it's fucking lethal. I always try to avoid going outdoors when the snow's in that stage!

Oh it's been funny watching people dig their cars out of the driveway this morning, or chip the ice off the windows. And the TV is showing the traffic at a standstill as everyone remembers how to drive in the snow again.

Thank heavens I don't work here! Just stay inside where it's warm and amuse myself with writing!

Shall keep an eye on the post - can't wait to show off my new pretties! ;-)

In Canada, those puffy winter coats are considered lingerie.

I'm just sayin'....

Heh! Glad you're having fun! :-D
