I managed to get some shots of the ongoing snowfall here in Manitoba this morning. We got about 4 inches yesterday and they're saying we'll have another 4 by nightfall.

Here's what my driveway looks like. Bear in mind it was cleared by my wonderful neighbour at 3:30 yesterday afternoon, so this is just what we got overnight.

And this is what Rosemary's Baby's tutor had to drive through to get here this morning. The girl deserves a medal.

I really need to get to town for some eggs and milk, but I think I'm going to wait until tomorrow when the plows have been out. I'm told in order to get down the highway, I need 4-wheel drive and I won't get out of third gear. I have no idea what that means, but it somehow doesn't sound like a job for my Chevy Malibu.

So, today I will hijack America's beloved November holiday and be thankful that I have enough milk in the fridge to keep us going until tomorrow!

Happy Thanksgiving, my American friends!

Wow! That's tons of snow. Luckily, it has stopped snowing here for now, and has actually warmed up a bit, it's -4 degrees today!

Stay warm - we're up to a balmy 1 degree today!


Here in Tennessee, we awoke at 3:30am to rain and 50 degrees. The temps are supposed to fall with highs for the day only in the 40's. What a beautiful scene to look out upon! Keep that malibu parked for a day or so until it is safe to be driving! when they say 4 wheel drive, that is what they mean!

I saw the pictures and thought, wow, so much space! I'ts like the middle of nowhere! Then I read your profile, which states exactly that, lol. It looks gorgeous. Hopefully the kids are out in it having a blast.
