No, sillies! Not THAT word, but another four letter word that starts with "s"...yes, that's right -snow! We had some, a lot of some...on November 2nd! There was little snow, there was bigger snow; thankfully it didn't stick. Well, we know it will eventually, I'm contemplating buying snow shoes to hike the some 14 - 15 kms to work. Funny that just the other day we got our bicycles so we can tour around in the good weather - I'm sure the locals thought we were completely certifiable. (Hello, May - I`m quite looking forward to you!) Even though it snowed intermittently throughout the day (perhaps I should have been a weather girl?), it never built up enough to take a picture, but not to fear...I'm fairly certain I'll have plenty of pictures to get the West Coaster's laughing their you-know-what's off soon enough.
Ron is fully rigged out with puffy winter jacket, boots (good up to minus 40) and gloves fit to explore the arctic in the dead of winter. As for me, I`m counting on layering - I mean really, how cold can it get? The million dollar question is how will we get the car down that long driveway after a huge dump of snow? (Which may or may not happen - the type of winter is being hotly debated in several Summerside circles and no one can agree. I`m siding with the wasp theory...they`re building their nests close to the ground, so that apparently means that there won`t be much snow. I keep picturing little yellow and black news casters in suit and tie giving the "buzz" about the news - sorry couldn't help the terrible pun.)
We've almost completed the epic battle of the living room. We've been painting for two days now and still have the trim to go...what a waste of two relatively agile brains! That being said (as per our mantra for everything we do to the house) "It's better than what was there!". My time off is quickly coming to a close and I'm not too sure how much time I'll be able to spend adding more minutiae to these pages.
We miss you all and think about our old lives on the other side of the country., but so far, so good, as they say. We aren't ready to turn tail and run yet and I think we both feel strangely at home...I know, I know...we'll wait for the first big dump of snow. Any takers on the pool going on in town as to whether we'll make it through the first winter or not???
