I’ve got plans for a 3-parter, but I didn’t want to start it on a Friday. So I thought I’d put in a bit of a filler post.
Here’s a re-cap of a couple storms from one of the worst winters we’ve had in Halifax for many years. Snow storms every Wednesday, too much snow for the city to deal with, and temperatures so cold that I had to take out my Parka (which is good for -40 celcius) at least once a month, from Dec to March.
Went to work as normal. By early afternoon the weather was getting so bad that they were pulling the buses off the road, and our office closed down. Photos taken on the short walk home.
Had to work this day, too, even though reports were saying that it was going to be really bad. The walk to work was fine, but by 10am things were starting to pick up. I ended up leaving around 11:15am. The wind was particularly awful this day, as it sent snowflakes shooting around like little icy ninja stars.
But in the midst of all that snow and ice and wind, it’s nice to see the city all covered in a fresh blanket of snow.
And I actually like snow(especially when it doesn’t interfere with work). Sometimes snow can be really beautiful. Sometimes it falls in big, fat flakes and makes the world seem like a dream.
[Edit: I just realized that it’s not Friday – it’s Thursday. Oh well. I regret nothing! Have a happy Easter those of you who celebrate it!]
