Yesterday we had a snowstorm. We got 35cms. The snow drift by the side of our house was nearly up to my waist before my dad snowblowed that bad boy. You know it’s a good one when even school is cancelled. Us Canadians are hardcore.
One thing I love about a good snowstorm is the way people come together. Yesterday I saw a beautiful thing – we were shovelling our neighbour’s driveway with my dad when his friend pulled up in his truck, grabbed his shovel from the back and just started helping out. What a good friend. Then our neighbour and his friend, joined us to shovelled a few other driveways. These same people helped push me out of the snow when I got the van stuck on our road a little later on. Teamwork makes the dreamwork. 🙂
I don’t necessarily like the cold that comes along with it, but I do love the snow. This winter I’ve been loving the snow more than ever. I think its possibly because it’s been a few years since I’ve had a proper snowy winter, and I know it’s likely to be the last one we’re going to have for quite some time.
