This week's mischief award goes to Mother Nature. Last Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, we had a big snowstorm. Overnight we got about 15 inches of snow, during the day we got about another 5 or 6, and then overnight Wednesday we got 1-2. It was a lot! It makes us especially envious of all our friends who are starting to see signs of spring in their yards. We are still fully in winter!
We knew this big storm was coming so basically the city pre-emptively shut down. All the schools were closed, including the universities. Ottawa (as the capital of Canada), is a big government town and all non-essential employees were asked to stay home (working from home if possible). Garbage collection was delayed. Even Canada Post would not deliver mail that day.
Lady and Man both worked from home. While they were both working (and didn't just take a snow day), we all did take some time to play in the snow (and they spent a lot of time shovelling!)
