We are having quite a start to winter, and it isn't even winter yet. Well, it is, but not officially if you know what I mean.
In the past two days, we have set record low temperatures — for those days, that is. We have had four snowfalls already, this overnight one being a major one, and it's still snowing. It's major enough to cancel all of the school buses in the region. It's just mid-November, and this isn't usual, at least not in our 13 prior winters in the area.
I did snap a few pictures from my den window as I do once or twice each winter. I may trudge out through the snow later to try a few others. But I don't have my snow tires on yet, so I will stick close to home, at least for the morning.
This ↓ is our across-the-street neighbour maneuvering out of his driveway. The plows had left a pile of snow in front of his, so he smartly exited from his adjacent neighbour's cleared driveway. The thing is that he has paid for snow removal and they promised to come by 7AM. This was taken at 8AM. The other thing is that we have hired the same contractor. It could be a long winter.
Once he had one car out, he began to work on the other. He spotted me peeping, and we waved, but I have already deleted that photo and can't be bothered to retrieve it although I could.
Our adjacent neighbours also have two cars, and I was able to sneak some pictures of them too.
Meanwhile, I'll wait for our contractor: not that I'm planning on going anywhere soon, but I really just want people to do what they say they are going to do.
