I hibernated.

It's my pup's first winter. I took her out earlier when it was still coming down and blowing like crazy. She kept barking at the snow coming down and she could hardly move in the snow. I guess I am digging out part of the yard so she can move around a bit.

You're making me sad with the puppy talk. We were supposed to get a puppy in February, but now it will be at least July.

As for the weather, this evening's festivities have been thankfully cancelled, so we're cocooning. Kids are outside shovelling and all is right with the world. Got tons of work to do though.

That's so cute.

I had to put my husky and cocker spaniel down late last winter. So it's been a rough year for me too.

Then when I was buying the schnauzer I took a flying leap down their cement stairs and was laid up for several months and spent many days in ER on IV anti biotics.

And my pc and car died, had to replace both. Plus 3 friends and my uncle died. It's been a year I would like to forget that's for sure.

I woke up this morning hoping to see snow and nada nothing no snow. I was hoping for a snow day. Than around 7:30am the snow started to blow. After that CHML cancellation list started to grow, I was hoping to see McMaster cancelled, nope! I arrive to work at 8:30, the drive wasn't bad.

Than at 9:45ish McMaster post a notice that it's closed, GRRRRRR! Driving home was absolutely nuts, I'm just so friggin glad I made it. The Linc wasn't plowed at all. I was behind 6 snow plowers and one salt truck on the 403, thank god. Than I had to hit it once on the Linc ramp since it was piling up with snow.

Ouch. An annus horribilus indeed. We had to put our 13 yr old standard down in Feb. Very sad as you know, but nothing else too catastrophic.

It was unreal. They even lifted the snow mobile law that winter and asked people who had them to go out and try and rescue the stranded. Some areas had 25 foot drifts. I sure won't forget that winter. Normally Buffalo is the snow capitol but was all about the same that winter in the whole areas.

At least my neighbour was nice enough to take his snow blower on my front walk. So not as much snow to shovel thank goodness.

Fortunately, my wife and I booked Wednesday, Thursday and today as vacation days and spent today painting.

This afternoon I heard CBC Radio reporting all the GO delays and cancellations and was glad to be cocooning.

Tomorrow we venture out to the market

I spent the past few days stocking up, not just for the weather. Also due to all the holidays coming up with so many things closed. So I can stay put for a few more days yet.
