Thought for the day……

Today is Friday, March 23rd, 2012 and I have one word that most describes today

” S N O W”  ……

Yesterday morning when I left for work the ground was pretty much bare ….

They were forecasting a bit of snow but by the time I left work the ground was covered by a thick, thick blanket …… a very fluffy (wet) duvet, if you will.

Perhaps even two or three of them or five …..

There was a bit of a wind which made being outside for any extended period of time ….. not the most pleasant of experiences.

One good thing was that it was quite mild.

The snow was heavy and wet.

It took us two hours to get home.

The traffic slowed right down and there were several major accidents one involving fifteen vehicles.

We passed by one three car accident.

Poor Alvin, Elton and Penny and all of the other puppies that were patiently waiting for their “Moms” and “Dads” to get home to them.

When I opened the door for Alvin to go outside …. he hesitated for a moment as he look at the snow on the deck and the snow coming down and then ran for it.

By the time he figured out where he could go …. he was covered by a white blanket of snow.

When he came into the house ….. I wiped off his paws and body …. the snow just packed onto his feet and belly.

Such an experience.  I shovelled a bit of the deck and thanks to my amazing neighbours the snow out front was shovelled and blown away.

So that was so nice and I am eternally grateful.

Well here it is Friday morning and now back outside ….. into it.

Thank goodness that the roads were bare before the snowfall so our street isn’t full of ruts.

I hope that wherever you are ….. you are enjoying whatever weather Mother Nature has decided to send your way.

Have a great Friday and weekend.

I am looking forward to my day off (tomorrow) but have lots to do.

Soon will be starting to do the Census taking for our city.

I wonder how much our population has grown as of late.

There sure seem to be a bunch of babies born or being born …. hope they are born by April 1st so they can be counted.

Otherwise I guess it will be next time.

Special Hello: to my sister and her boyfriend who are travelling in the U.S. …… they will be in San Francisco right now.  Have a blast and safe travels.

Always, Carol and Alvin
