It's a white world out there

Usually I struggle to get up in the morning - it's the winter weather. When Mitch is heading out to the gym in the morning, I'm still tucked under the doona, mostly because it's the warmest place in the house until the heaters in the living room kick in for the day. This morning though, I was SO excited when I woke up and had no trouble getting out of bed - I opened the curtains and was greeted by a white, wintry world!!! It snowed until about 8pm last night and started up again (lightly) this morning. I rugged up in my ski jacket and headed out to explore our little town in the snow (I must say, riding my bike in it isn't so fun. It's slippery and icy and I can't go really fast like usual :-( ), trying not to fall over on the icy paths. It's amusing seeing people out raking the snow off their steps and clearing the footpath... We even had a snowplow go down our street last night - these are such foreign things to me, winter usually means balmy 20deg days, not snow!!!

Our balcony is full of snow, a few cms deep now. Yesterday I was bouncing off the walls and couldn't sit still - I kept running outside to play in it... I did mention that I love snow, right???

I even built a teeny little snowman yesterday... With his marzipan carrot nose, he ended up looking more like a scary duck... He's still standing out there today although he's slightly buried and has lost his yummy nose :-(

All this snow already and it's still only November.... I'm loving it now but I wonder what the next few months of wintry weather will bring??? Here's hoping the canals freeze over so I can make use of my figure skates!!!!
