Snow Glorious Snow


Island roadsLabchuk roadisland roads plowedI can’t explain it but songs of winter weather keep popping into my head, The rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain, to, its a Winter wonderland, or The weather outside is frightful and even Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer . Can it have something to do with all the snow on the island, or possibly I’m becoming cabin crazy from being shut in for such long periods. I could just be dreaming and will soon wake up, Oh no!!! Sorry Bing, I refuse to dream of a white Christmas. But I’m not dreaming,  I’m wide awake and yes there is snow everywhere. This is life in the Great White Canadian Winters. I still sometimes ask myself why I didn’t immigrate to New Zealand way back in 1963. .Really I have no regrets and although I no longer enjoy winter as I did when I was younger, I still like to look out at the oceans of snow knowing as an old submariner I can just open main vents and dive below to the calm green and beautiful silent world below.For you landlubbers that means pulling the blanket over my head and going back to sleep

So if you have read the above you can now perhaps give  an opinion as to the state of my mental health??? I don’t think I’m losing it, just bored and with very little news to write about other than snow!!!! Island schools are closed again today, making it a full week of no school. Its understandable considering the conditions of the roads. How many schools buses could actually cover their routes on such dreadful and treacherous roads? More importantly how safe is it for young children to wait at their driveways for the bus. Kids like to play, climb snow banks, jump and slide off drifts, throw snow balls and generally run around without due care and attention. A certain recipe for disaster in blowing snow, icy roads and poor visibility. Stay home kids, be safe and sound, summer is coming!!!

God Bless and keep reading
