Back again

Well, long time, no blog ... Kristen was here in St. John's all last week, and ended up staying two days longer courtesy of a "record-breaking" blizzard on Saturday.

This of course is the aftermath ... I wish I'd been able to get some pictures of the actual storm itself -- not that you'd be able to see anything.

Sunday morning was the impressive part. Kristen and I ventured downtown at eleven in the morning, not entirely expecting to find anything open, and discovered a city like an anthill. Everything had been effectively dug out, from sidewalks to storefronts.

I'm becoming inured to these winter storms. This time around, it barely made an impact on me. I suppose that's a good thing.

Anyway ... reading week is over and Kristen is gone, and I'm getting back to the real world and the stack of work I spent last week assiduously avoiding. Sigh.

Dude, that is just wrong! I was watching the news and they were talking about this fire in St. John's and how they couldn't get in to fight it because of all the snow. I take back everything I said about it being cool to live in the Maritimes. Maybe that will stop all the snow!

PS to Lesley... Newfoundland is NOT in the Maritimes.
