Remembrance Day Snow Warnings

We quickly got blanketed by snow this Remembrance day. It snowed from 3 am to 2 pm today. The weather forecasters (with bright red warning banners) predicted 10 to 15 cm of snow today. I haven't measured it, but it certainly is a substantial heap. The lake is still open, but temperatures have yet to drop.

I gave in and put up a few Christmas decorations today. There's no wreath on the door yet. Oh, and there are no Christmas lights in the windows either, so that the neighbours don't think we're looney. RLM is anti-Christmas decorations. No, this is not for any good reason other than he doesn't like "clutter" and cleaning stuff up after Christmas. No problems there, because I was the one who packed everything away last year!

With all that grey/white ... who can blame you for wanting a bit of Christmas colour to add a spark of cheer! We don't usually decorate until December 1st ... but we don't have snow yet either.

All that snow would put me in the mood to decorate for Christmas, too!

GIGGLING - hmmm - how to say? well, if you look at MY blog, or our company blog, you will know who's commenting... or

anyyyyywayyyyss... we were 'pointed' to your blog. Boy you have the snow there! We have a LOT of catching up to do. Your blog is LOVELY & very informative as well. You have the green thumb.

Not only this - I see Cicero is a regular visitor, and guess what, we've been blogging back and forth for quite some time and have even MET!

What a small, small world, no?

Ah, the La Ronge Winter Wonderland!! You've definitely got us beat down here - we've only recently had a skiff. I confess that though I haven't put up any Christmas decorations yet it's only because there hasn't been time - I think I'll be pulling them out this weekend too.

Did you get the 80kpm wind gales we had earlier this week??

I guess I shouldn't be complaining about the snow we had. It is nowhere near the accumulation you had, but boy, is it cold. What snow we've had is stayed...

This year, I'm feeling much like not doing the Christmas decorating that I usually do ... except that I often break down and put up lights etc. We'll see...

I hope it warms up there!
