Well, it definitely is a winter wonderland here in Saskatoon. We got around 15 cm of snow overnight, with a warning for 15-25 more this afternoon and evening. Here’s a picture of my back yard.
And here are a couple of my front yard. That sexy, red car is mine. I’m sure if you can see it though, but the snow on the street is pretty much up to the bottom of my car. Not sure how I’ll manage driving.
Which is okay, because today seems like a wonderful day for just staying at home, making some hot coco and writing for NaNoWriMo, doesn’t it?
Too bad I work for ten hours today, then! Commuting might suck, but I’ll try to make my car manage. I hope I can get some words in tonight, and get back ahead on my word count. That would be nice.
Snow can be fun though. Building snowmen, sledding, making snow forts and having snow ball fights. Those were some of the best times of my childhood. I still act like a child most days, but I’m too lazy lately to actually get out of the house and do anything. Oh well. I’m not to lay to make hot coco – the good, homemade way with warm milk, real cocoa powder and sugar! Yum. It’s much better than the packaged stuff you can buy in the store.
On a final note, for those that don’t know Saskatchewan, we’ve had snow since before Halloween and it’s going to stick around till March, maybe even April. So, if you don’t like winter, don’t ever move here because it’s winter here for six months of the year!
So just thought I’d share those couple pictures with you before I go to work. Does anyone live anywhere where you get lots of snow? Do you love it or hate it? And, what’s your favourite winter activity? FYI, drinking hot coco does not constitute as a real winter activity.
