Man, did we get walloped by Winter this week. Tuesday, Halloween, was cloudy and cool; a bit rainy, but the drizzle stopped by dinner and the kids had a beautiful, not too cool night for trick or treating. (One of the houses across the street had special effects lights and sounds and it scared The Girl; now every time she sees the house, she says "Fooky house! OOOOOO!" and holds her hands up Frankenstein monster style.)
Wednesday was a beautiful sunny day, but before I turned off the computer for the night I saw there was a weather advisory. Really? I thought, and toddled off to
Thursday morning I woke up to a howling blizzard and a shit load of snow. WTF. The wind screamed and it snowed all day and into the night and Friday morning I was out first thing trying to get rid of the snow drifts that were waist deep behind the car.
We are seriously considering buying a snow blower.
I am not a winter person at the best of times. We don't ski or skate, although I am hoping to try snow shoeing this year or next, depending on many circumstances. I would much rather have the sun and heat than snow and cold and ice. But what can you do, this is where we live.
