You Can Never Fool Mother Nature!
All week long the weather guys in this province have been telling us that we are to get snow this weekend starting about noon on Saturday. Noon came and went and yes there were a few flakes, but nothing like the 5 - 10 centimeters they had promised us. In fact by 6 in the evening it was raining here and barely a flake to be seen. We all got a good chuckle, and thought we had really fooled mother nature. We went to our beds pretty smug that we had won! Till this morning when we awoke to white out conditions in many areas and the bridge that we have to cross for work for most of us was all but closed because of the wind and ice. At first I thought it was going to only last a little while and then hopefully rain - like yesterday! Nope - not a chance. About two o'clock the snow just stopped and the sun came out to display a winter wonderland. I took Lucy and headed to the bog late this afternoon for a solitary wander. It was quiet and lovely down there. Tomorrow however may be a horse of a different color (you remember gt281 I told you we had many here ). The temperatures are supposed to dip to -5 C making my trek to work a little tricky.
