Tuesday 16 February 2016 – Blizzard


Yesterday’s green wax for the skis was replaced today (after judicial removal of many leaves stuck to the skis) by some blue wax, but to no avail. Sue and I ventured out only briefly into the all day blizzard that has deposited around 35 cm – well over a foot – of white powder over Ottawa. Not a day to go for a drive, even to Mooney’s Bay just a couple of miles away.

The 4 km walking circuit from Quinterra Court took well over an hour. It was hard going. Sue posed for a few snaps, but she could be anyone on this monochromatic day.


Nevertheless, Michael and Sayuri did manage to get across Ottawa for their dinner (just one lamb was sacrificed), and a lovely evening was enjoyed by all of us.

Final tally – 51.2cm of snow fell here yesterday. Quite a lot by any standards!
