It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We had planned on driving to Gord's sister, Judy's today to spend the weekend to celebrate an early Christmas with her family and Gord's mom and stepdad.  They all live 2.5 hours away.

We had heard there was a storm coming but had hope it would pass.

Alas, it didn't.

It snowed all day (they were saying we could get up to 20cm/8 inches of snow), it was cold (-12C/10.4F and -23C/-9.4F with the windchill) and the highways were slow and slippery so we decided to stay home.

This was about noon ...

It finally stopped snowing!  We got quite a bit of snow!  Hopefully that's it!

The storm hasn't hit here yet, it is coming. We are only expect 10-15 cm. However, it has been very cold. Between -20 and -26 without windchill ! I hate winter!
