I think the reasons are self-explanatory (photos – the first one may look like lumps of snow – these are a car and truck).
We have both been valiantly fighting back. Simon spent the entire morning shovelling and blowing snow. Then, when he dug out the truck and headed into town for groceries, I took it upon myself to shovel out the back-four trail because the puppies tried to walk on it. Ha! I think only the top of one of Shanara’s ears poked through. At one point I was in it far past my waist shovelling down several layers.
But we did it! We have a driveway (of sorts) and a trail (again – of sorts) and we have food in the house. All, in other words, is not lost.
We’ve both been busy today – getting stuff done. But now we are looking at playtime. And, given the amount of fresh powder, it would be a shame not to take advantage of it. Simon wants to head out to Strawberry Pass tomorrow. I wonder if we may not be better off giving it another day – you know, for plows to do a really good job on the roads.
We are going to wake up tomorrow and make a decision.
According to the weather network, this has broken all records for snowfall in the East Kootenays. It figures, we move here – we have record snowfall. Or, as Simon said, we’ve done awfully well all things considered.
Personally, I think it’s due to the fact that we are both extremely awesome.
Speaking of awesome, Alisa called this morning with the very exciting news that she has been accepted into UBC – brilliant! A future world-famous physicist in the making!
In a world of Trump and Bannon, brilliant scientists are exactly what we need.
In other news, there really is no news.
Life goes on – profoundly on some days, with great depth on other days, with complete banality on occasion and, on a day like today, in a sort of holding pattern because the wheels are in motion and haven’t quite finished turning yet.
