It took me two hours to get home on friday night. but i'm not retroactively complaining, i say, if you made it home safely in the snow storm, thank a snow plough driver.
I guess we didn't get near as much snow as the rest of the Eastern Seaboard, but we still got a pretty hefty dumping. Everything is all shiny and white and new again. I love how snow can do that.
I had to laugh though because in the news Boston's Mayor said that "we're easterners and were really prepared for this" - two years ago I was in Boston when they got probably 5 centimetres and it seemed like the city didn't know what to do with it... I mean it was a lot of snow that they got down that way this past weekend, and it's been a long time since we've had that big of a dump here in Ottawa (all at once), but you haven't seen "prepared" until you've seen snow storms covered in this city.
Hometown pride: snow removal. We do it best.
despite the snow storm, there's just this feeling in the air that the winter days are fading. slowly the afternoons are getting brighter. the other day i went out for a run at 5:00 pm and it felt like it was mid-afternoon because of the sunlight.
