The weather just hasn't been giving us a break this year.
We have been spoiled the past 2 winters, with scant snowfall and milder temperatures.
This winter, we have had snow on the ground since mid November.
A very cold December, a white Christmas, and COLD air.
2 days ago, a surprise snowfall left us with 15cm of fresh snow.
And then another 20 cm of snow.
Then, the temperature plunged and winds blew.
Environment Canada issued a wind chill warning and a severe cold alert. followed by a blizzard warning. The -19°c felt more like -40°C.
For 2 days the wind blew, and the snow flew.
School buses were cancelled, highways shut down.
When it was all over, the driveway looked like this:
It took 2 people, a snowblower, a snow plow and a shovel 2 hours to dig the driveway out!
Oh the joys of country living!
I think I am ready for spring now
