The first snow storm to hit our city this winter sure packed a punch. Close to 30 cm so far has accumulated in and around our yard. Although it’s pretty to look at and photograph, it’s pretty messy driving around in it – even with snow tires on. Our lane wasn’t plowed by the time I got home so I managed to get my car stuck. A half hour or so of shoveling plus some ashes helped me get out and off to the side until our snow plow guy came by.
My favourite part of snow storms is the quiet. Everything is muffled and is so peaceful! And my second favourite thing is hearing the train whistle so loud and clear as if it was right next to me, yet in fact is many miles away and can only be heard on low ceiling days.
