Winter has returned

After a full month of beautiful weather and no snow, winter has returned. Saturday we had a big snow storm and we got more snow on Monday and more today. We were supposed to leave on our trip to Hawaii today but we had to cancel as Mom ended up having to work and couldn't get time off. We are hoping to book another trip sometime in May or June but Hawaii would be pretty nice right now!

All of my running group are heading out of town for the weekend in 10 days. I am really looking forward to the break and to the great company. We just eat, talk and laugh. You can't beat that!

My cousins funeral was cancelled on Saturday as the weather was so bad and they ended up having it on Sunday. It was very sad and the church was full both upstairs and down. It ended with someone playing Amazing Grace on bagpipes. It was beautiful. Now all of the 17 funerals are completed and they feel they have found the cause of the crash. I hope that all of the families can now begin to heal although I can't imagine how hard it must be.

I'm sorry to hear about your snow storm and how you are stuck there instead of Hawaii. We are so close to So. Dakota where they got slammed that we saw a lot of pictures. We have sunny skies here! Spring is just around the corner and you do so well with winter, I wish I had your attitude.

I hope you guys are all okay...I am not sure of your exact location. Are you near any of the rivers that are cresting over houses? I am sure it is terrifying for so many of those who are having to evacuate.

Thank goodness we are not near any of the flooding. Newfoundland is an island just off the most easterly part of Canada.

Let's hope spring comes our way soon! Then we can go for rides on our ATV again.
Do you guys take out your ATV in the winter too? We haven't taken ours out since early November. I think with the right tires, you can go out in the snow...

I'm sure your cousin's funeral was beautiful! I just love the song Amazing Grace. It's very sad, but I'm glad that everybody can get some closure now.
