I don’t want to speak too soon, but after all, this is what West Coasters do best… gloat about our mild spring like temperatures in early February. This weekend was one of those weekends. Nice sunshine… warmth of the sun… now lets just keep it that way..!!
For the fourth time this winter season, we had a dump of snow. It is the time of year that we in the Fraser Valley are supposed to gloat about as the rest of the country is in a deep freeze. But seems, perhaps tis not to be this season.
Monday Feb 6th, we woke to our biggest dump yet. Our previous dump had just melted away less than a week ago… not another one..!!
But hey, not so bad… Wednesday evening brought more snow… which turned to rain by Thursday morning… what a mess..!!
After two days of rain and above zero temps, the snow has once again all but disappeared.
A handful of us that had former lives working on the Nortel – 360networks account team, got together for dinner and a chance to catch up. Dave MacKinnon was ‘in town’ on the job (now working for IMP Aerospace).
Last week’s snow was short lived; it melted on Saturday. But that was just a tease..!! Sunday night brought with it, fluffy white stuff that was destined to stay a while. A foot of it..!!
My 1/2 shoveled driveway on Monday morning.
This time, a looming cold front gave the snow a reason to stay. Not my favorite thing, but to every snow fall there is a silver lining. In this case, it just happens that Basty loves a fresh snow fall. After washing his face in it, he bounces playfully like a rabbit.
Life trudges on. I’ve had the house back for about a month now. Working (slowly) on painting a few rooms (master bath done, master bdrm today, plans for main bath… , 3rd bdrm…, front entrance/family room…).
A few interesting photos..
It has been a while since I last posted…
Since then, I have moved this blog from my self-hosted Synology DS, to wordpress.com. Self hosting the blog was interesting, but high maintenance. It also presents some security risks to my DS. There is nothing in this blog that I would worry about vis-à-vis content or security… so, why not host it on wordpress.com..!?!
August is long gone, September isn’t too far behind. Kevin/Amanda/Gracie are still with me as they wait for their townhome construction to complete. The target is end October, but possible they could get in earlier. Crossing my fingers on that one..!! I think we are starting to get on each others nerves!!
Here are a couple of obligatory recent shots of Basty…
