Nobody I know was ready for this year’s first snowfall.
Yes, we are Canadians, but recent years have spoiled us: we got used to first snowfall in December — even late December.
So we were cruising along, still high on the beautiful late autumn weather when – wham! Last Monday, we got several inches of the white stuff.
Pretty, unless you have to drive in it. And therein lay the rub: most drivers I know had not replaced summer tires with winter ones. I plead guilty.
These are wintry garden scenes from much of last week.
It’s not that I hate winter. I know we need it. It’s just that I don’t like driving or walking on snow and ice.
And that sounds unCanadian, I know.
