Another Blizzard Expected For Newfoundland and Labrador!

We have another storm coming! It will start this evening and last until Saturday morning. All the snow we have managed to get rid of in recent days with the rain and warmer weather we had, will be replaced with this storm. 50-80 cm of snow is just too much!! We will be digging ourselves out for days to come…

This is why I went to the grocery store yesterday on my way home, so we will have enough to last a few days and what was too heavy for me to get, hubby is picking up on his way home from work today. I expect hubby will be home from work tomorrow for another snow day!

While it is typical for NL weather to be mercurial, this accumulation of snow is unusual. Yes, we have had winter storms here into May! It will be fun anyway and before we know it, the snow will be gone and the Spring will be here!

I am looking forward to those days and in the meantime, I can handle the snow, as really, I don’t need to go out in it daily, not like my hubby and most folks who go to work… I can sit here in my cozy home and wait for it to melt!
