Snow - and more to come!

ANOTHER 20 cm of snow was dumped on us.
Now we are looking at about 38 cm (15 inch) in total and, for the coming weekend they are predicting additional 
50 cm (19 inch) on top of this!

Can you imagine how this will be, come January and February?
Do I really want to know?

In the late afternoon I took a last walk with the dog and these are the photos from our neighbourhood, just to show you...

Until now I have been enjoying a cosy warm house and watching the flakes swirling by the window, taking a walk with Molly in the snow. I really like it. As soon as the sky clears it is very pretty to look at too, all white and blue and gold. I probably would have dug out my Norwegian cross-country-ski and would have taken a tour in the park. Maybe I would have built a snowman as well.

But what shall we do when hubby finally decides that he wants to leave for sunny Florida after all?
Well: pack, Baby, pack! 
Yes, and mascot "Rosie" has to travel with us too!
I hate leaving the house in a hurry but this time it cannot be helped.
Luckily I have list, so the last two days I have been packing and we have been scuttling between the house and the camper trailer.
When we return the Christmas tree will still be sitting in our cosy living room.
 view of North Road today, and hopefully...
... the roads will be plowed by tomorrow morning 
(and look like they did last week) 
so we'll get ourselves out of here.
Dream on!

See you on the road!


  1. We'll be leaving on the 27th for Florida. The Grands want us around for Christmas Day. Maybe we'll cross paths down there this winter as next year we'll slowly be trekking westward. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Oh my gosh - you guys are all ready for Christmas, tree decorated and everything! So sad to leave it - but really, I'll bet you'll be so happy in warmer weather. A quick decision and fast packing - very exciting. I'll bet you can't wait to get on the road. Looking forward to your progress. :)

  3. Your snow photos are beautiful. That is how I like my snow photos. Don't feel bad about the tree. One year in sticks and bricks, I intentionally left our tree up until after Valentine's day...It was fun for the entire family.

  4. Your photos are gorgeous but I wouldn't want to be there in all that snow. Watch those roads. We don't want to read about you getting stuck or worse.

  5. Way to go, get warmer soon and travel safe!
