|A light dusting of my backyard on Sunday|
It had been forecast for a few days already: Sunday the temperatures would drop and the snow would start to fall on Monday. And guess what: it did!
We saw some light snowfall yesterday as well, but that was hardly enough to cover a anything. Today however more than made up for it, since it started at around 10.30am and hasn't stopped yet. There is quite a bit of wind as well, which makes for some treacherous driving at times. Some parts of the road have been blown completely free of snow, while other parts have foot-high snow banks!

As I was doing my driving today, I was severely hindered. The snow itself of course, which stuck to the windscreen wipers, so I had to occasionally get out of the bus and clean them if I wanted to see anything. Then there were the roads: clear and snowbanks. And of course the other traffic, driving too fast and spinning around or too slow and annoying me.
The snow is not expected to stay for a long time. By the end of the week, the temperatures are due up again. Hold on, I just checked: due up and then down again. Heavy cloud covering as well? This might mean more snow! Which means snowman!!
But right now: the fire is roaring and I am enjoying my hot chocolate.
