Well, we made it to church today, barely.  Along with about 25 or 30 other people, plus whoever was at the early service.  Some pictures for your viewing enjoyment:

Here’s the snowbank son #2 could have almost climbed up onto the roof of our house from:

Here’s son #2 after having fallen down said snowbank:

And here is the view that greeted us as we came home from church.  A city bus, stuck in the snow, completely blocking our street:

This was at one o’clock in the afternoon.  Despite the fact that we live on a bus route, the City of Ottawa still hadn’t plowed our street.  At the time of posting, the plow still hasn’t been by.  I heard that a lady in Montreal actually bought a snowplow for her street and sent the bill to the city.  I begin to understand her frustration.  We don’t live on a cul-de-sac, we live on a major street with a bus route.

  1. Amazing! No fun for those who have to travel in it, but if you get to stay home and have fun, it looks great! :o)

  2. Kate, that is incredible. And I thought our friends from East Lake, OH got a lot!

  3. WOW! That’s a lot of snow. I love snow, maybe because it rarely snows in Memphis. We had some snow here, but nothing like yours. Wish I could come and play.

  4. Want some? 🙂 The novelty wears off pretty quickly when you have to shovel it…..

    Our parish cancelled services – first time since the Ice Storm. I could not have got out of my street until it was plowed.

  6. We didn’t cancel, but only a hardy few made it. We had morning prayer, as our priest couldn’t get out of his driveway either, and his bus, when it finally arrived, was so packed he couldn’t get on it. You’d think OC Transpo would run extra busses under the circumstances, wouldn’t you?
