Snow storm arriving from the US

Wed, 12-26-2012 - 3:46pm

It just started snowing now and it is quite heavy.  I would like to think that this is a squall off the lake in regular times but since we are to get a storm I would say it has arrived.

Dh left around noon for the new house.  He would have left earlier but he had to time it so he wouldn't hit rush hour in Toronto.   He should arrive there just when their storm is starting.  We are supposed to get 6-8 inches and high winds here and the same for eastern Ontario.   I just hope we don't get any power outages.

I talked to all my family today at their Christmas dinner at my nieces.  It was so nice to chat with them all.  Next Christmas I will be there or I might even host it.

Can't wait until Spring.......

I'm praying for your dh's safe journey and that you do not get any power outage.  Has Misha sat on your lap again? 

That must have been nice chatting to your family.  Next year you'll all be together!

I hope that your dh is at your new house safe and sound by now.  You are going to get a lot of snow with this storm.  Yes I hope that your power won't go out especially with your dh gone tonight.

How nice to talk to your family.  That would be nice if you could host Christmas next year at your new house.

That's good that you will have Friday off.  You don't want to be having to go to work in freezing rain.  That's the worst.

Thanks for your prayers Suzy.  He arrived there safe and sound into a winter wonderland.  He said it looked really pretty in our back yard with all the snow and trees.

No Misha hasn't sat on my lap tonight but he sat at my feet on his blanket and got his lovin'.

Yes Sindee I have lots of Christmas leftovers to eat so no problem there.  I just needed to go out and get some bread.  I had to go to the corner store as the grocery stores are closed today for Boxing Day holiday.

I just looked out and it looks like 6 inches now and the snow is falling very lightly and the winds have died down.

That's good you took Friday off as freezing rain is very dangerous to be out in.

Mary:  He arrived there safe and sound but there was a lot of snow in the driveway from the storm last week.  There was ice mixed with snow and even the Jeep 4x4 got stuck.  He did some shovelling and managed to get through where the snowplough had piled up a ledge at the end of the driveway.  By this time he was pooped so he only unloaded 1/2 of the boxes tonight and will finish the rest tomorrow.  Tomorrow they are to get 10-15 cms more.  He doesn't know if he will be able to go to the store to shop if it is storming.

Here we have about 5 inches now and it is still coming down.  I'm going to have to go out and clean off the satelite dish on the back deck.

Misha sat at my feet tonight on his blanket as I was eating my sandwich.

Yes I can't wait until next year to be with my family instead of talking on the phone.

Dh arrived at the new house safe and sound but had to do a lot of shoveling to get in the driveway.  The snowplough put huge boulders there and it was mixed with ice and snow.  The 4x4 got stuck as the ice boulders got stuck under the back wheel differential.  He managed to shovel his way out and drove half way up the driveway.  He unloaded half the stuff and will do the rest in the morning.

The shopping trip may be off tomorrow since the storm is just arriving tonight sometime.  He wishes he had taken the snowblower with him now.

The wind has died down here so it looks like we won't have trees down.

I'm really looking forward to hosting Christmas next year.
