What’s the best way to end your Christmas holidays? Add one more day!! We were under a snowfall warning all day yesterday and last night, and I was a nervous wreck yesterday because my son and his girlfriend had to drive back to school and the roads were terrible. Once I knew they had made it safely I crossed my fingers and toes and did the snow dance. For once it worked because we woke up to a fresh, white winter wonderland this morning. My younger son, Daniel, came out of his bedroom at 6:30 am with an ear to ear grin that let me know the buses were cancelled, and when I looked outside to see our street was not plowed yet and heard on the radio that we were under a blizzard warning for later in the day, I decided to add an extra day to my holidays.
Mikey headed out first thing this morning to blow the driveway, so I grabbed my camera and joined him. Now, when the plows have not come by yet, you can’t exactly go out for a drive to snap pictures of the countryside, but if you use your imagination there are always snowy shots to capture right close to your house. I spent an hour snapping shot after shot throughout my neighbourhood, while trying not to fall over in the deep snow with my camera in my hand :). Here are a selection of my photos to give you an idea of what we woke up to. For all my blogging friends in warm climates, get your spare bedrooms ready because I might just be visiting you if this keeps up :).
