it's a white out!
We are in the middle of a blizzard. The whole province is shut down. For the first time in history, school was cancelled due to the weather. Loopy was thrilled, she's never had a "snow day" before. You may find it shocking that in the middle of the Canadian prairie we've never cancelled school, but it's completely true. You see, we Canadians pride ourselves in soldiering on in spite of bad weather. We're like a nation of postal workers (neither rain nor snow nor sleet or night, isn't that how it goes?) and cancelling school seems like giving in.
So Loopy is in the city for the night with Grandma, who was giving her a ride to school and they didn't even get past the driveway after their sleepover. Ben will take a hotel downtown where he spent the afternoon in meetings. Buddy and I are tucked into the house and as you can see, we have zero visibility, we can't see the other side of the street. The golf course at the back of the house is completely white - there was no point in even taking a picture of white. Time to make some tea and put in a movie. I like the new idea of a snow day.
