Happy February

I can never resist taking winter photos.  This one I did on Saturday morning.  It was one of those glorious sunny, cold days and the snow was glistening so brightly I had to shade the camera to get the photo.
The weather reports say that another storm is hitting southern Ontario.  We seem to have escaped all the extremes.  I am surprised to find just how easy the winters are here in the backwoods.  After living in Edmonton with its minus forties and Orillia which is in the snow belt, it almost seems balmy here.  Almost but not quite.  We have had some very cold days and others when the snow just keeps falling. Those are the times when you are especially grateful to a neighbour who has snow removal equipment and is kind enough to do your road.

This photo shows our next door neighbour working on our driveway.  You can see about three quarters of the road length which gives you an idea why we are so grateful.
If you are in the area that will be affected by the storm, please stay safe.  It is a good opportunity to stay inside and quilt.  If the hydro goes out, take it as a sign that it is time to organizes your scraps or maybe do some hand quilting.
By the way, if anyone is in need of some business cards, I have found a great source for some free ones.  They are good quality and you get a little case for them-also free.  The site is http://www.vistaprint.com/
