Get ready for some snow. Today we are expecting up to 10 cm of the white fluffy stuff. It is also staying bitterly cold so shoveling will be an extra fun treat. The wind chill will make it feel closer to minus 34.

I really can’t wait until the forecast starts to turn around and I feel more inclined to get out of the house and enjoy some fun winter activities without the fear of losing a finger or toe from frostbite.

To the folks who have embraced it, you are awesome. I wish I was more like you but I’m not, so for the next week, I will continue to hide indoors, watch Netflix and wait for warmer temperatures. Sunday’s forecast looks more like the weather I will consider leaving the warmth of my home for.
