A Few Snow Days
It has been a very sporadic week of work. Monday was a snow day, Tuesday I went out with kids, and Wednesday/Thursday have also been off. As I write, Thursday, it is still quite windy and roads are closed. Last year there were 4 snow days this week, and it is looking to be the same.... We'll see.
There really isn't that much snow however. Only about 20 cm maximum has fallen. I have only had the snow blower out and cranked up once. I have just been shoveling and hand bombing what snow has fallen, but most blew in the driveway for the most part. So it has been quite manageable in that sense. But boy has it been windy. Most of the highways have been closed. Or at least parts of them have been in between various committees in Huron and Perth counties - It is a dam good thing I haven't had to drive to London with Shelly. Although I really think I have completely just jinx myself.
On that topic, Shelly's due date basically is/was today according to one of the methods of calculation. The other date is the tenth of January. It doesn't make too much sense to me why or how there are two different dates, however it appears to be the case. Quantitative representation (by Shelly) has always been a skewed in my opinion over the years. Numbers, times, dates, money amounts have always been subject to a more or less interpretation. So for all I this baby may be here at Valentine's Day. Maybe the weather will be more agreeable when it does come.
We are all doing very well though. It is a big year and there is lots going on. I am most looking forward to a potential big trip in August to France, the sabbatical from work, and of course some fall travel solo and with the whole family to some exotic location...
