Hello there!

My computer is back from the shop, good as new,

and

I wanted to take a minute to send you a cheery hello on this sunny, snowy day on Prince Edward Island

The GuardianThese photos were taken in the western end of the Island, about a two-three hour drive from my home.

cbc Some of the country roads in that area are down to one lane. The banks are so high the plows can’t push it back. They have to use snow-blowers. The children in that school district are on their 4th day in a row without school.

My end of the Island doesn’t have quite so much snow. We had a little rain in the last storm which helped to melt some. But we still have a lot!

It’s the most snow on the Island since 1982 when helicopters dropped supplies to stranded homeowners in the snow-bound western end.  Roger and I missed that winter –  we were going to school at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary.

With all this white stuff, most Islanders are getting a little winter-weary. But Mila doesn’t seem to mind the snow.

She says it helps her feel closer to her little friends!

🙂

I’m heading into the library and guess what book is waiting for me there?

I’m in total agreement with Miss Goudge’s title from Dec-Feb

but

in March I need a little convincing!

She’s an exquisite writer, one of my favourites, but I’m still not fully persuaded that she’ll sway me.

I may have to browse through some travel dvds too ~ preferably ones with Southern destinations!

*grin*

It’s good to be back!

Happy day!

with love,

Standard

  3. I thought we had tons of snow but you win. I think our chinooks help because it melts it down before the next blast of the white stuff. This winter though there's been so much snow that the chinooks never did get rid of it all. Funny how that book came just at this time.

  5. Kathie, I can't believe that wall of snow with the car beside it! I have a friend on the west end and she posted pics on fb of all the snow around her home. Unbelievable! I guess I shouldn't complain about the amount we have 😉 Well, there is rain on the way for the weekend and that should bring the snow down some. I hope! Have a great weekend! Blessings, Pamela

  9. Wow! That is a LOT of snow. If i could attach it to the comment, I'd send you a daffodil, fresh picked from the garden, to remind you that spring WILL come : ) Many of my friends love Elizabeth Goudge and I've only dipped into one of her books. Perhaps when I finish with the other Elizabeth I'm reading (Gaskell), I move on down the shelf in the stacks to Goudge!Lots of love,Beth

  10. Now that my friend is a lot of snow for sure! That one lane road is very impressive. I don't know if I'd like to drive down it…Is that Goudge book her autobiography? Enjoy…

  11. You win the most snow contest. That is amazing, and who knows, you could still get some more this winter. (Eyes crossing at the thought!) Hope little Mila didn't get frost on her tail and whiskers!
