January in Nova Scotia

Late morning and we’re well into another big snowstorm today – our third in four weeks. The forecast for this weekend is a foot or two of snow followed by ten hours of freezing rain, then a whole pile of rain, then a hard freeze, all accompanied by 110 km/h winds. The thought of our inevitable power outage doesn’t bother me much since all my favourite activities – reading, knitting, rug hooking, snacking, sleeping – don’t require power anyway. I’m definitely in the minority, but I’ll take this over a heat wave any day.
