Wintery Woes


We had, and are still in the midst of, the very worst snowstorm of the entire winter. Everything on the Island is at a standstill. All the special Easter church services were cancelled as well as most of the family and friend get-togethers. I was invited to two dinners but I, like many people, are not leaving their homes in this.

We got about 38 cm. of snow when 15 to 20 had been forecast. We will get another 15 cm. (or so they estimate) today. The wind is really strong and has thrown a huge drift across my back door. It will be hard to push my way out to shovel when it's all over.

The picture above is of my downstairs bathroom window. Even the upstairs windows are covered in snow. Really amazing!

Music today is a fact, then a wish. Stormy Weather is the fact and this version is from the great Dinah Washington. Sasha Dobson does a fine job with Spring Is Just Around The Corner. That's the wish. Not long ago I was giving spring music and we were having spring weather. Now it's winter again.

Stormed here, too, although most of the snow fell overnight. Yesterday was mostly drifting and the odd little squall. I even managed to get out and take a few pictures.

Still, what a pisser...

I try to look on the bright side. We've had the least snow ever experienced in a winter here so I know we need the moisture. Still, what a pisser....
