Whew, We Are Free

We spent most of the morning, digging our way out of the driveway. Nice to know that we can get in and out for a few days. Well at least until the next predicted series of snowfalls.

We are supposed to be getting more snow starting Saturday and going into Monday, because of that I am going to take advantage of our nice weather tomorrow and get a very few groceries, Harvey's meds, some cat supplies, take a look and see if flannel sheets are on sale (plan on using them to make Harvey a couple of pj bottoms), see if there is some fabric that is suitable for cushions, and buy fuel for the car. I will also pay a couple of bills on line. Then it will be time to sit back and relax until, well, the snow hits the fan.

March is always unpredictable here on the Canadian prairies, but I am really hoping that this will be our last month of winter.

One really good thing about getting storm stayed is that I manage to get extra cleaning done as well as a few projects. I finished the roses cross stitch and have started the next kit. Did not get much done as of yet, but I am hopeful that it will be finished before the end of the month. This one is going to be a gift for a friend on their birthday.

Another really good thing about 2 or 3 day blizzards is that I do not spend any money. Love collecting all those no spend days, means I am saving money for holidays come the summer and fall. Sure makes keeping budget lines down very easy.

Just thought I would share some pictures from around the city during and after the storm.

 
 
This is the road in front of the school I used to work at. By the end of the storm the banks of snow were over 8 feet tall.
 
Cars stuck on the highway overnight about 20 miles from the city.

Truck meets snowbank. Snowbank 1----Truck 0.

Highways are opened once again, and things are opening up in the city as well. Crews will be working around the clock to get us up and moving before the next storm hits.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.
