Living in Canada, you tend to expect a certain amount of bad weather through the winter. If there wasn’t, it wouldn’t be Canada, it would be the Caribbean. Today we were hit with a particularly bad nor’easter. Being Canada, we continue with business open as usual through most conditions. But with the forecasts yesterday, most places went home from work anticipating it would be Wednesday before they were back. Our local ferry service even took an unheard of precaution of moving the ferry to the mainland to ride out the storm in a more sheltered cove. The weather lived up to its billing. I’m not sure about the snowfall; there’s bare ground and massive drifts. The wind has consistently been over 100 km/hour all day with a gust this morning of 153. The result:
I’m knitting by candlelight wrapped in a blanket. I’m thankful I’m in a warm (but getting slightly cool) house and I’m grateful to the power workers, snow plow drivers and emergency services workers who couldn’t take a snow day today. I’m wondering what your weather is like today?
