With 345cm of snow so far this winter Ottawa is approaching its record of 440cm back in the winter of 1971-72. I know many people I talk to are thoroughly sick of it, but as a relative newcomer I still find it quite exciting to see so much snow. We had yet another snow storm today and our children valiantly shoveled on and off all day to keep the driveway under control. Even so, when we left to head out to worship team practice tonight we cleared our driveway only to get stuck in our unploughed street!
Andrew and I were unwell today, the last to get the stomach bug which hit A11 early on my birthday morning and has hit another family member every three or four days since. Without me cracking the whip over the school books this left the children free to pursue the snow removal with all their energy.
