Silk purses

The weather yesterday was absolutely the pits.  It was raining and blowing a freaking gale, at least 35 knots, gusting to ???? which I guess is about 65 km/h (wild guessing here) the wind chill was around 1, which in Canada is lovely, but in Canada we have things like, oh, insulation in the houses and less than 4 meters of single pane glass.  It was freaking COLD in here.

Worse still, my folks, who were supposed to come Wednesday evening, are stuck in the UK and can't come and visit.  We want to see some of this snow, and play in some of the fluffy stuff if it is going to deprive us of our family.  So, despite that yesterday was bloody cold and dreary and we were back to work and school today I am feeling cheerier as we have just booked a hotel in a snowy spot for the weekend.

We're bringing the dog, and we're going to go and do some cold, snowy walking.

Should be very good!

Me too! Only difference is I'm not looking forward to my snowy weekend! Have fun, it's nice to be able to get some snow time and then leave it behind.

Have some of our blooming snow - totally over it. I was talking to an Indian girl at work whose parents are over. It was the first time they had ever seen snow and for the first day they loved it's prettiness but the novelty soon wore off.
Hoping Erin gets off on her travels next weekend if my brother is having such difficulties
Have a good break

Hope Chuck enjoys the snow. Saffy loves it, and dashes round it like a young thing not the 11 year old lady that she actually is.

Why don't their paws freeze?
