another blast of winter

They were calling for 4-10 cm (or 1-4 inches for you non-metric types) of snow starting Saturday afternoon. The snow started late Saturday, but stopped after a light dusting. We woke up this morning and the snow had started up again. The the big flakes came...and they kept coming for the next three or four hours. By the time the clouds started to clear and the sun came out this afternoon, this is what we actually ended up with. More in the neighbourhood of 20 cm.

Doesn't really matter that we shoveled our portion of the driveway when we have to drive through the rest of this. Looks like public transit will be the mode of transport for the three of us tomorrow morning. (I know those of you who actually experience the true force of winter, for longer than a couple of days two or three times over the season, probably think we are wimps and this is nothing more than a drop in the bucket, and you would be correct...we are, I'm not ashamed to admit it.)

I have to admit, it sure is pretty. :u)
