I am Marie Ashley and I live in Alberta, Canada. We had a huge snow storm about a week ago and we still have a foot of snow on the ground. I do believe that we have winter to stay as when I got up this morning, again, big fluffy snowflakes were falling and we had another inch or so covering the stuff that had already fallen. Hubby was swearing when he got up because he was going to have to shovel... again.
It’s not that cold out though. It was about 34 degrees F and/or +4 C today... nice and crisp and after the snow stopped falling it was bright and clear... a nice winter day.
This won’t disappear now until March so we are in for a long winter. I hope the temp stays around the 0 Celsius mark or 32 degrees F. That will make for a bearable winter. Winter with all its snow is usually here for almost 5 months of the year. I envy those of you who live in the warmer climates at this time of the year but I don’t in the summer as we have beautiful, warm weather then.
Our neighbour’s girls were having a snowball fight this morning and I was expecting them to build a snowman but it never did get done. The neighbour across the road had his snow blower out and cleared the street in front of his house and several others but he never came across the road *sigh* to clear ours. It would have been nice.
We should begin to see the Christmas lights going up on the different houses soon. It is so pretty *grin* with all the coloured lights on the houses and the outdoor trees and the white snow sparkling along the way.
We moved in July, from Southern Alberta to a more Northern location in Alberta so I sold my Christmas tree and a lot of my outdoor lights before we moved... will have to go shopping soon to replace those items as I cannot be without my Christmas tree.
Hopefully we won’t get too many storms that clog up the streets this winter. I have my winter tires on my vehicle so I am ready for the cold and in a way... I am looking forward to the winter season.
Happy Holidays to all and to all...
