Day 110 - Nice day if you're a polar bear.

Well today definitely was a first; we had to close the school at 2:00 because of a snow storm AND it's April 20th. We've had to do this process before but never this late in the year. We've had about 15 cm of snow so far and it's not over yet. It was a slow drive home as most people no longer have their winter tires on and were slipping and sliding all over the place. Being a procrastinator actually paid off today as I haven't had the tires changed on the car.
Of course when we got home we had to shovel. I shoveled the deck and then Peg took over for the stairs. I managed to capture the polar bear 'enjoying' the snow. Now I do love polar bears but enough is enough. I want flowers!

Nice of the polar bear to do some shovelling. Wishing you warmer weather.

WOW! 15 cm. of snow???? Yikes! So glad we headed further south for our second night in Quebec. We were musing (while driving up and down some of the steeper streets in Quebec) about how much "fun" driving must be in the winter! Was sad to leave... but glad we didn't have to contend with that snow! Wishing you flowers and warmer breezes SOON!

We had a similar situation last week too and I HAD already removed the winter tires from the car. Our storm ended up being more icy than snowy.
