It has started to snow - -

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

One never stops being a mom. I worry just as much about my kids now as when they were young and living at home.Then the situation runs 2-fold because they add grandchildren to the equation.My youngest is driving up from Toronto in a few days and I'll be sweating bullets until she's in the door. Another of my daughters left this morning for Toronto to pick up her daughter and do some Christmas shopping.Warned her that she was heading into a storm but was poo-hooed with the old "aw ma we're from the north, we can deal with a bit of snow." I'm waiting for the call that tells me they arrived safe and sound with a slow drive through the area between Parry Sound and Barrie because you're always sure to hit snow squalls through there in winter.

Here are a couple shots out the front door a few minutes ago.



The wood is clear between the knots.

Jazz, you just know she'll go into labour on Sunday! :roll: :roll:

Butterfly, I bought several pairs of cheap scissors at the $$$ store and I keep one pair in the box where I keep all the ribbons and tags. I keep 2 rolls of scotch tape and a pen in there as well.

That's Christmas Card Purty Ron!

OMG the snow is really coming down. We went to a job this morning and I was covered just unloading the car, even my jeans were wet. It's crazy.

We came home early, and I took Giz for a quick romp. He was ok at first and having fun then turned around and wanted back in, I couldn't keep up so let go of the leash and he ran down the sidwalk, up the drive, into the garage and was waiting for us by the door ehehhehe. He was really running fast hahahaha. He even had his coat on but doesn't like it falling on him. Once it's on the ground he's ok. I turned the fireplace on and he's a nicely roasted pug now, so no worries eheh.

Hey, what's this talk about Toronto and Montreal being centres of the Universe? Plotlands©bb/Community Gardens is the centre of the Universe. Situated within 10-minute drive from Buttonville Airport, report not on any maps today. hmmmpff

But I suspect it's a wee snowy over there.

Editing in that it's grand to hear of walkies with dawgs, Ven and Laura and everyone else who does this for pooches delighting in the Snow.

Drive safely if you must be driving, all of you Centre of the Universe people...I'm thinking best thoughts for y'all thru this...hope you'll return the favour this weekend if the monster on the radar hits me/us.

Niece, get out there and walk the dog, honey-chile! Remember Jack the Lad is low slung...do you walk ahead of him and flatten the snow so he doesn't freeze his willie?

Yup Lyn Im thinking same thing. They are about 15 min from hospital. Ideally if Isaac would decide to leave the warm heat of mamas belly she should go into labour during the nt of sat. so that she would be in hospital sunday morning and miss this huge storm which is supposed to hit sunday noon.

Wishful thinking I know, but i am so worried about that storm. They are so so so nervous. I can just imagine Jonathan saying s.....this call the ambulance ,the cops lol. jazz
