More snow

Its been a slow day here but I've been busy reading emails, then trying to get this place organized by taking out the garbage and recycle material. The recycle bins are getting full after the holidays and the weather (lots of snow), getting more recycle material out may be an issue. I wanted to get some laundry done but the machines are in use (I need two) and there are 4 washers and 4 dryers for a six floor building, not enough for such a building, but I'll manage!

We're expecting 5 to 10 cm of snow and some areas may see as much as 25 cm of the white stuff, especially the higher elevations. This is on top of what has already fallen, some of which has melted because of rain and warmer temperatures we received during the week. People here are not at all used to the snow, not in the valley (i.e. lower mainland) anyway. Places that have the snow during the winter also have the equipment to move it to clear the main roads first and then the side streets and lanes plus sidewalks etc. That's what I'm used to coming from the east (southwestern Ontario). Here they're lucky to get the main roads ploughed and perhaps some hills. The side streets are left and people there are left to their own devices. That snow is left for nature to melt, whenever that is! So, here's to more snow!!!

You might want to know I was chatting with Brad again this afternoon. We've been chatting on the phone this week as well. He's got a hot, sexy voice, very soothing to listen to. Good to hear he is alive and well. Getting him here is a high priority for me. By air will be the only way at this point but with him, everything for both of us will click together just right. Brad just has to be here to see it all, to experience life fully and to appreciate the benefits of what a true friendship can offer.

Meantime, I'm back to sorting and such with breaks to do other necessary errands. I hope you've all been having a great weekend so far. More later.
