A Doozy of a Day.

It has been a doozy of a weather day.  I cleaned off the bird feeders in the morning and there was another 6 inches of snow on them by early afternoon.  We were going to go into the village to do some shopping but we just hunkered down. 
I was hoping it would clear up for the weekend but, right now, it doesn't sound like it is going to get much better.  We are going to Toronto on Sat. to see the grandchildren  who are flying in from Alberta and stopping, with their parents, on their way to the Bahamas.  We have to get to the hotel and it is a 3 hour drive normally so it might be a really challenging day.  If it is really bad, we will take the go train once we get to Barrie.
Everything is arranged for our little holiday.  We have a house sitter coming in to look after Heidi and the chickens.  All I have to do is wrap a couple of gifts and pack: and then hope we can get out the driveway.
I did get quite a bit of quilting done today so there is always a good side to everything.  If you were on the road in this area (or anywhere for that matter) I hope you got home without mishap.

  1. Today has been wicked hasn't it?? We've had some awful snow squalls blow through here. I'm on the other side of the Park, which often blocks those lake effect streamers, but it's not helping today. I can feel that extreme cold starting to settle over us. Will have to throw an extra quilt on the bed tonight!
