Considering it's not officially winter, I'm really not thrilled with what the weatherman threw our way today.
Oh sure we heard the winter storm warning last night and yes, we knew there would be more than a dusting but really was THIS necessary.
I had been expecting my sister and two of my nieces for a nice pre-Christmas tea this afternoon. I was going to hand over the presents for under their tree. The presents I rushed and wrapped yesterday. I was even going to serve my homemade shortbread. I will be giving you the recipe eventually.
Oh well we have a few more days to get together before the 25th and with any luck the second wave of snow won't happen. HA I laugh
The first photo is of Paul. He waited til the worse was over than headed out. Some of the drifts where past his knees. I stayed inside because my boots are short and someone had to take pictures.
It's amazing how well my camera works through the front window.
The second photo is our neighbour Don . He had gone out before the major portion of the storm hit and found he couldn't get his van all the back into his driveway and that was after a long slow drive home. Thankfully he has a blower too.
That just leaves photo #3. This is our neighbour Dave. He doesn't have a snow blower. Not to worry, Paul went over and cleared his front sidewalk and helped clear his driveway.
Now I will make at nice warm dinner and serve it with a hearty helping of Irish to warm Paul up.
