Snow, snow and more snow


It’s the first day of winter, and here in Ottawa we are in the middle of a huge snowstorm: we’re expecting a good dumping of 30 cm before it’s all over. Looks like it’s going to be a very white Christmas!

What’s it like where you are?

  1. With us it’s rain, rain, rain. Apparently if all the rain the UK has had over the past few days had been snow we would have a covering of between 12 and 20 inches. I think on balance I’d rather the rain but then I don’t get flooded. There are many people this morning paddling around their living rooms rather than preparing for Christmas. I hope you have a good one.
