We got the 'big' snowstorm here, though it certainly wasn't as big as many we've had. Further south in Ontario there was a lot of slush, mush, freezing rain and rain, but here it was just snow. So we're back in winter, though not back in severely cold temperatures, and it's supposed to rise well above freezing again by Tuesday/Wednesday. This is not the kind of winter I like, because the above freezing temperatures simply destroy the cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. But I did get out to ride the snowblower for a couple of hours clearing the driveway. It was an unusual snow accumulation, because it came with an east wind which made drift patterns different. My fibre artist wife is back from two quilting retreats in two weeks; she's been home less than she's been away at these sewing parties. It's nice to be back together.
