Winter Wonderland

What a difference a day makes! Yesterday was clear, sunny and quite pleasant. It was hard to believe that a storm could possibly be coming! Ohhh but it did....and with vengance!

It still has not stopped snowing here....and they were quite accurate forecasting that the total snowfall would be 25 - 30 cms. I'm inclined to think (whithout measuring) that the stack of snow on our round table out back is 35 cms or more!

It was the first time in a long time that we've been hit so hard. It was a snow day for most schools in Southern Ontario....you know the kids didn't mind!

There was no chance I was getting one.....had to be up & at work for 8:30.....and even though it was slow.....we sold a lot of shovels (7 in the first hour), salt, windshield wiper blades and washer fluid. ( I'm not sure if I mentioned but I'm the Head Cashier at Canadian Tire here in Pickering. ) Automotive products are in very high demand when weather gets nasty.....not to mention that we sold out of snow blowers last night (for the second time this winter)...but we also had customers who bought things to enjoy the snow....lots of toboggans & other things that go downhill very fast! Woo hoo!

While all this snow did make for messy travel and a lot of vehicular altercations...it has also turned our world into a winter wonderland! The evergreens look spectacular! And if you do it right....snow shovelling is a good cardio workout!
