It started with the power going off at about midnight (again!) and snow continuing to fall until we woke up to a hint of clear skies and two feet of snow on the ground. Well then!
Snowshoeing at 9? Maybe not.
While Simon got the snowblower revved up, I shovelled the back 4 for the dogs. And we had it good compared to Nicky and Brent who had their garage/storage tent collapse on all their stuff. Ugh!
It was 11.30 by the time we had things cleared enough to venture downtown (downtown! Ha! One grocery store and a coffee shop!)
I thought to deposit my cheque (for writing a story for a magazine – check out latest edition of Inspired Senior Living), take out some money, mail a letter at the post office, go to the liquor store – duhhhh. All closed of course. So we bought some groceries from New Market which runs a big generator. Yeah – they know about life in the Kootenays!
So – back home for lunch and sitting by the fire reading. And then, glory be! The power came on at about 2.30.
It is now time for a hot bubble bath.
Desperate to get out in non-shovelling mode. I want to ski!!!! Or snowshoe.
Got the presents wrapped today – tomorrow, we put up our tree!
I have been rationing Simon to one Christmas cookie per day until the 25th. Of course, the problem there is that I didn’t actually count them all. Hopefully, he doesn’t see this post. You never know what he’ll get up to after I got to bed at night. Might have to hide those cookie tins. Not from him, of course, from the Sasquatch that’s been lurking around the place (so he says).
