Winter Wonderland

It appears as if winter has arrived. What happened to Fall?

Keeefer I am sure these pictures will help you with your winter withdrawal issues, you may want to put on your parka and get a hot toddy.

Marrianna (Mary) has already seen snow twice since living in Kamloops, but both times it had snowed at night, she had yet to see it falling out of the sky. Well, we ordered up some snow for her. Here she is playing in it while it comes down for her on Sunday evening. She had great time playing it while I BBQ'd steaks for dinner.

You can't get the Brazilian foot wear off of the girl, even in the snow. She did slip my boots once her feet got cold enough. Of course I wear a size 10 and she is a size 7 1/2. I will ask Debbles when she gets home (She is in Mexico for our first snowfall, just to smart that one!) if she has an extra pair she is a 7 1/2 too!

Trampoline: not just for summer fun.

I took this picture today on my way home from the grocery store. It started snowing early this morning and it has not stopped since. This the intersection of Pacific Way and Hugh Allen Drive, right at the bottom of the hill, we live at the top just 5 minutes up the road.

Today was my first time driving the van in the snow. Paul had snow tires put on it, but I was worried about how it would handle in the snow. It was just fine, I took my time and went at my own pace. Everyone was driving with caution the roads were not salted and graveled yet and in spots there is ice under the snow, I thought about staying home, but our cupboards were pretty bare. I am very pleased with the van at this point, it fits our needs well and is nice to drive. (I never in a million years thought I would be saying that!)

Sebastian helped me shovel the driveway. He sure knows how to make it fun!

Looks like everyone is having a good time. The snow would make me want to stay inside and knit.

We are having a heat wave. No snow in the mountains, 75 deg F today, and fire warnings because of dry grass and high winds. I love it!

P.S. Perhaps Mary would enjoy a trip to California, if she's still here when you come.
