Mother Nature has spoken…

And she has decreed that despite my best efforts shovelling snow yesterday, that it WILL be a white Christmas.

Three hours I spent yesterday, unearthing the patio, and all the paths and driveway around the house.  I was so proud of myself.  Slept like a baby because I was so tired, then woke up this morning.

OMG!  Nearly 10cm of snow has fallen, my hard efforts erased, and it’s still falling now.

It is pretty beautiful though, and while I’ve dug myself out twice now, the novelty hasn’t quite worn off.  Yet anyway.
