It has been in the forecast for days. But I didn’t believe it….
Until I left my house yesterday afternoon and sniffed the air. That unmistakable smell of snow. I could feel it in my bones. It would snow.
As I came home from work the first drops of ice rain began to fall, all we needed was a slight change in temperature.
At 3 am I got up to go to the bathroom and heard…silence. That muffled silence that any Canadian would recognize. I opened the window and there it was – a soft blanket of snow. Not much mind you, but enough for me to emit a squeal of joy and scare my hubby.
This morning I eagerly got up. Not enough really that would lead to the school closing for the day but enough for a thin layer of white to cover the landscape.
An hour or so later a nasty wind started and tossed the snow to and fro followed by rain which turned most of what was on the roads to slush, but the temperature is falling again… Who knows for the first time in years I might get a white Christmas!
