The snow levels are still comfortable, compared to last year’s. But then we got 50 centimetres (20″) in one day, and it didn’t start until late January. The risk [or chance? 🙂 ] of another record breaking winter is still there. I don’t care which, since I’m in the fortunate situation I can do or don’t do whatever I want. No shovelling, nothing pressing to get out and slide around in it.
We did go out today, ran some errands. The wind was biting, through skin and bones … ‘nippy’ would be to mild a word.
I took this, while I was waiting for my husband, who was having a haircut, to give you an idea of the snow and our surroundings. It’s Lansdowne Ave. I’m standing with the back towards our building, which is way up high. It’s nice to walk down to the grocery store — the green sign you see to the right of Subway — but to walk home from there, with grocery bags, really gives you a good workout. It’s very steep uphill.
To the left, outside the picture, is a small strip mall, with a drugstore, amongst others. So it’s a good location, where everything is handy. This is called the North End of Saint John. If I were to walk in the opposite direction, I’d be downtown in ten minutes. Couldn’t think of a better location to live in this little city.
