Crazy weather hereabouts lately. We went from extremely high winds pre-Christmas winds and Christmas Eve temperatures reaching into the high teens °C. Christmas Day was cloudy but still mild enough to be comfortable outside as you will see in the photos and video below. That weather was followed by freezing rain on the weekend. Now we are having our first major snowfall of the season. Heck it is our first real snowfall period.
I have just been out testing the roads because we had tickets to see Star Wars in the city, but the roads were pretty horrendous. The access ramp to the highway was closed. So, there is nothing to do but cancel our plans, forfeit the $ already spent, and be disappointed. Yes, the kids are quite disappointed. So am I.
They have been catching up on the original Star Wars series lately to ready themselves for the new adventure. They were quite excited, and now this. We even joined them for the Jedi movie last evening. Ah well.
One gift for Christmas was new scooters for the kids. In most winters, they wouldn't be able to try them out until MArch or April, but they had them out on Christmas Day (photos and video). We even stopped by the park for awhile. I sat on the slide, and they enjoyed plowing into me.
Groan. There's that word. Plow. Ugh.
