Happy Monday folks!
What a crazy week we had! And by “we” I mean the collective “we” as in St. John’s residents. It started with a spec of real snow at the beginning of the week. A thin and endearing layer of flakes that remained on the ground and allowed us to make our first – even if flimsy – snowballs.
By Thursday night:
- 17 cm had fallen in the area,
- a fire in an electrical room of the water treatment plant meant that residents could only use water for emergency situations (no dishes or laundry were done that evening – YEAH!),
- around 10 000 Newfoundlanders were without power (reason why escapes me),
- it was bitterly cold, windy, and very, very slushy.
I named the last couple of days of the week “Townie Armageddon” but in the meantime the water rationing was lifted, the sun peeked out (street conditions and temperature still atrocious) and Samuel was able to wear his snow suit for the first time. December and winter are really here my friends!
Have a wonderful week! Make it count.
