Its Begun.....Brrrrrr

We knew it was coming but its always a bit of a shocker when the first cold days of winter hits!  Truthfully it did snow on Halloween day for a little bit but it didn't seem as cold - so I count today as the first 'cold' day!

Today started off nice enough, I took Miss S to preschool and it was brisk out but not too bad overall.  2 hours later when I went to pick her up it was quite a bit colder and then it started to snow and of course Miss S was dying to go out and play in it.  

Of course I keep forgetting to take pictures of the snow during the day, here are some lovely night shots, thank goodness for porch lights!


I guess we need to suck it up and realize that the nice weather is over and bring the patio cushions in!!


My husband put winter tires on the van last week and never having them before I had no idea what I was missing.  It wasn't bad out today but the van totally stuck to the road even when a little girl jumped out in front of me between some cars.

Miss S won't get her wish of sledding tomorrow since there isn't quite enough snow, but maybe she will in a few days if the snow comes that I heard they are calling for.  Then again it IS Calgary and the weather report I heard this morning has probably changed three times by now.

  1. I've always wanted to be where there would be a white christmas, but here in Australia it's usually very hot .... so we end up having a BBQ and salad or cold dinner and salad. Some people still do the hot christmas lunch, but only those brave enough to put up with the hot kitchen while preparing the food. One day I am going to spend Christmas in a country with snow.
