Apparently it snowed all night and now the lake effect engine is wide open. We have at least and probably more than 12 inches on the back deck. Boy is it snowing and they say it may snow all day. I woke Bonnie at 10:30 and told her I was going out to work on the driveway.
|Headed for the garage|
|Constantly plugging up|
|Early this morning|
|It snowed 6 inches while I was out working|
Bonnie had made apple sauce and we got ready and canned it this afternoon.
|Six more quarts for this winter's enjoyment|
|Our next project will be to clear this.|
Elizabeth sent over a picture of Alexus clearing out the snow from in front of the windows, they also get some wind in where they are.

So a quick measurement showed that there was 33 inches of snow on the deck this morning. After breakfast I got ready and went out to clear snow. Bonnie got dressed and went out to shovel the deck. She did the hard part and got the deck opened up so that we could work on it later.

|Our mailbox is almost buried|
|This pile is about 7 feet tall|
|Tried to clean out the mailbox|
|Finally finished the driveway|
|Actually kind of Pretty|
The girls came and went right to work. I showed them where to start and got dressed to go out and help with the snow blowing.

I need a nap.
So we only got 2 more inches of snow last night. I plan to let mother nature take care of it. With the threat of Lake Effect snow over we packed up and headed for Collingwood, Canada. Yep not enough snow and cold here so we are headed further North.
The highways were open and after a quick stop to pick up a Rx we headed for the Peace Bridge. No backups today in fact we were the only ones at customs when we pulled up. A few quick questions and we were on our way. No lake effect here in fact very little snow at all. We had an uneventful drive just lots of traffic. Once we got North of Toronto we stopped for lunch.
Bonnie had fish and chips and I had the roast beef sandwich.
The sandwich was good but for some reason one of my crowns fell off. I thought it was a bone at first but did not swallow it. So a trip to the dentist is planned when we get home.
This is ski county in Ontario but Blue Mountain is not open yet. There is some snow here but just not enough. Shopping is interesting here since all the measurements are metric and milk comes in plastic bags. I had to google it to see how to use it.
The condo is almost new and is very nice. Elizabeth and Alexus are coming up to join us for Thanksgiving. So we should have a great time.
|Nice big TV|
We slept like rocks and did not get up very early. So far we have not left the Condo today. Neither of us is feeling all that great. We tried to keep up with what is going on at home. The Buffalo TV stations are on the cable here so we can watch whats going on.
I did get a picture of the ski slopes in the distance, they do not have enough snow to open yet.
Meanwhile back home.

Keep the Buffalo area in your Prayers.
