Here is Quinn in her FIRST ever snow!!! Even when we went to Quesnel for Christmas last year, it was GREEN!!! She is all bundled up in Hayley's old snowsuit.
Just one part of the driveway, it is up to her knees. She got worn out real fast and from here on in, I had to pick her up.
Not exactly sure what to think of this. That is ok Quinners, I think that speaks for all of Victoria.
How is that for a face?
Catching the snowflakes right out of the sky!
Well, it came. We shut down. We are officially on an island now. We have no passable highway, we have no buses running, no flights out, no ferries running - and for 50,000 homes - no power.
We are the lucky ones here in View Royal (our suburb), as we have not lost our power, and really, we have no need to go anywhere. We are finally eating the fruit from the summer that I froze - yummy smoothies - and our freezer has lots of meat and veggies as well. We have loads of milk, movies, diapers, and hot water - so today is no different than any other day, other than the winter wonderland that is outside the window. Now, I grew up in Quesnel, where we had plunging temperatures all winter, and I find it cold here. We are sitting at -10, but for us in the garden city, it is chilly. I am actually wearing socks and long pants today!!!!!
Hayley, on the other hand, is not so lucky, or maybe she is the luckiest one of all!! She is at Carole and Eric's (her grandparents) who live in Prospect Lake. The have fallen trees, power has been out since 4pm last night, and over 3 feet of snow. Her boots are here!!!!! From what I hear, she is doing more than fine, with bbq steaks, baked potatoes and beans cooked over the wood stove, lots of candlelight and board games. Not to mention snow forts, snow princesses and time spent with those that love her. In my selfishness I hope that she will be able to make it out tomorrow.
