Speaking of Canada...


That's just outside the Library where I work. You could take a crazy carpet down that set of steps back there (yes, they're covered in snow but there are steps there!)

Looking towards the stairs that go down to where the buses pick up the students (and myself when it's time to go home)

Well you can almost see one of the other buildings there. And yes... it does look like swiss cheese or something...

The bridge going to the other side of the campus. Can't see anything on the other side. And that ice is green... gross!

So classes were cancelled at 2pm and the library was closing at 4pm. All the IT staff (except me) got to go home. I had to stay until 4pm but when the transit company contacted the university's security and campus security called us to inform us that the buses that were coming out would be the last buses. So it was about 3:30pm and I ran out the door to catch a bus so I could meet my dad at the terminal so he could get me, then drive up to get my mom. Good thing my dad was working today because he's not phased by this kind of weather so I knew I'd make it home in once piece.

After all that snow (which is still falling) we had to go to my grandma's to shovel her front steps and walkway as well as the walkway and ramp heading around back AND the desk... my dad had the easy job, he got to use the snow blower to clear the driveway. I think I send my back into spasms using the shovel. Ugh!

Interesting weather! Great photos. Which part of Canada is it, the prairies or in the East?

Hope your back's OK, guess you'll need it for your up and coming move? Exciting times ahead.

South/Central Ontario. All the snow fell in just the one day; those pictures were taken just before 2pm. It was basically snowing heavily all day. If that was rain then we'd be looking at flooding, I think.

It's currently hitting here. Good times in ol' Canadia.

Great photos, L! All that snow missed me by around 70 miles. I got a dusting. Can't remember the last time I had to really shovel snow. I hope your back is OK.

It's nothing I can't handle. I'm past the whining phase now Razz I'm already feeling a lot better. Clearly need to work on those back muscles!

That's lots and lots of snow. This is not something unusual in Canada for this time of year ?

We haven't gotten that much snow this winter. This is probably one of the first real snows. So happy!!!
