Winter Has Arrived in Alberta!

Leaving the garage door open all night long with a north wind due to a blizzard is what you don't want to do!

Our good neighbor, Brent, called to see how "the Cahoon's are doin'" and with in 5 minutes he was up helping Mark shovel snow from the garage. We really do have "neighborly" neighbors!

A bad storm moved in yesterday with practically zero visibility. Neal had a basketball tournament in Lethbridge(45 minutes away) yesterday after school and was not able to get home after the games so the team spent the night with relatives of the team members. They played two games today and are on their way home......It will be nice to have him home safe and sound. Just a side note, to add to the bad weather conditions, Brad was in a fender bender(in Utah) this morning. A lady lost control and broadsided him. He is fine, but his car might be totaled.

I am betting on no church tomorrow. There are two factors to getting to church. One is that you have to be able to get out of your driveway, and two, be able to see the road you are driving on. With living in a rural area these are very important elements. I'm telling you, it's bad up here!

This picture is not indicative of todays a long shot.
Just wanted to leave you with a pretty image of winter.

Thank you for the beautiful winter wonderland scenery... beats the slushy snow storm we got here!

And I hope you enjoyed your romantic night home alone!

That's a real bummer eh?
Good thing Rusty wasn't in there!

Because of the storm you now have 2 romantical nights alone. Ooh la la baby!

Glad to see that we're not the only ones having the crazy weather. But, as others pointed out.... the romantic night is always good! Hope Brad's car gets better - yikes!

I drove from Salt Lake to Saint George over the weekend... in a storm the whole way. I don't like the snow, and I never want to live in it. I don't understand how you can do it! It's scary. But being snowed in could be a good thing.

I was just thinking about you yesterday, Marilee! Winter has arrived here, too, only not with the drama of YOUR storm. We got 3-5 inches. It was a winter wonderland sunny day Sunday. Good luck shoveling out!

You think I have energy?? Wow, if that's how I look from the outside I'm doing good... I don't feel any energy, but if other people think I have some, that's all that really matters, right?

Those are some beautiful pictures you took. Church wasn't cancelled for us yesterday, but shortened to 1 hour to ensure that people's cars would start (supposing they started in the first place to get them there.)
