Snowfall!

Snow! This is the view onto my deck this morning. If you realize that the space between the seat of the chair and the arm is about 6 inches, you'll have an idea of how much snow there is. It was up to Robinson's tummy when he went out for a pee.

I love the silence. I also love the enforced relaxation (except for the shovelling). I shall hole up in my cosy little house, toes to the fireplace, and take photographs of my Christmas tree for Photo Face Off's scavenger hunt today. Last night, I started a jigsaw puzzle. I haven't done a jigsaw since before my Mum died. I went grocery shopping yesterday to be sure that I had milk and bananas and things. I have a ton of snacky food and curry left over from movie night.

ETA: oh, and I shall light Solstice candles tonight.

There's more snow expected today - the warnings are still up. I don't know if this is going to be like the blizzard of 96, but it's certainly getting there. The weather conditions are in fact almost identical... The winter of 96, we had an influx of California sea-lions. Something to do with el nino or el nina, I forget which. It was so quiet then that I could hear the sea-lions barking from Dallas Rd waterfront, several miles to the south of me.

I'm quite jealous of all that snow. Everywhere else in the northeast is covered except my area of New Jersey. We get ice and rain. So it's too dangerous to leave the house, but there's nothing pretty to look at. Oh and the dog refuses to go out.

We hardly ever get any - especially before Christmas. Our most memorable snowfalls have all begun on Boxing Day. It's pretty, I must say! Robinson loves it until it balls on his feet.

I am enjoying it, and so are the city's kids. After shopping downtown a little today, I took the bus to the college to get a present I'd left there, and I was amused on the way to see snowman after snowman on front lawns, all facing the road and waving their stick arms, like representations of the citizens' inner children.

Just hoping nothing comes down on a power line.
