First thing in the morning we were off to do my first lectures in the garden series I'm doing this winter. I think I'll create some very short summaries as blog posts for the weekends, so if you're interested in gardens.... Came home to blow more snow off the drive and the deck, then I had such a long nap I didn't get for a walk at all! Very sad! Tonight we're under both a Snow Squall Watch and a Snow Squall Warning, with "guaranteed dangerous driving" conditions for tomorrow. So we've cancelled our visiting plans and will wait out the storm to see what happens in the morning. Just something you have to live with in the snowbelt.
Actually I'm looking forward to the snow. We have snow flurries forecast for each of the next 6 days, with a total accumulation of at least 8", so I think we're definitely into skiable weather. And if we we get much of that snowsquall activity, it could be a good bit more. Hope they get those trail groomers out soon. Even if driving is dangerous, I can head out on snowshoes right here at home. I read in a British paper (in glaring bold headlines), that it may be the coldest day of the year there, at -15°C! It's colder than that here right now, and this is just normal winter weather. Winter, bring it on!
