Shortly after waking up today the snow began to fall, and then it really began to fall. Finally some legitimate winter weather!
We had planned to go and cut our own Christmas trees with Diana and Jeremy and our friend Sean and his son Solace. Unfortunately, Diana ended up having to work, and Sean was feeling less than chipper. Janet and I deliberated about postponing our plans until next weekend, but with forecasts calling for daytime highs below -20°C next weekend we decided to strike while the iron was hot, or, at least not quite as cold.
We loaded up the thermoses, and dogs and chainsaw and hit the road.
