Snow Day!

OK, what kind of topsy turvy world is this? We woke up to another 6 inches of snow...

... and my brother, in Ottawa, is "basking" in unseasonably warm temperatures...

UVic was the last educational institution in the region to declare it was closed today, at 7 a.m.; the public schools had already announced by the time I got up at 6. Transit tried going out but ordered all its drivers to stop around 6:40 a.m. after several busses slid into ditches. They were running again at 8:00 but on very reduced service (3 regular routes plus 4 modified routes).

Kiddo was up early and we headed down to the park, which looked beautiful... I took many many photos... and she had fun, especially after her cousins and Nana arrived. We were back inside by 9:00, enjoying some hot chocolate and soon I am going to dig out the Scrabble Junior game.

Unfortunately, Hubby does not get a day off since he works from home. However, he is taking a lunch break to walk up to A&W for some Mozza Burgers. MMMMm.

Yummy shot. Not sure whether to say, "hope it melts soon" or not . . .
