            I think they are pretty used to big storms around there, I have friends in Hamilton & they are often snowed in too... :rolleyespink:

              Hi everyone,:)

              Its been a wicked couple of days here:scratch:.....we got snow, then freezing rain, then back to snow......we even had lightening too.....and the roads are a mess.....now its back to rain.:rolleyespink:

              The good thing is its not cold:cool:, its hovering around the freezing mark here, very odd weather indeed.

              Thanks everyone for thinking about me:grouphug:, and you're right Marley....being Canadian, its amazing what you get used too :heehee:....and living on the Great Lakes, we get crazy weather all the time.

              And to make the weather even more crazy....its supposed to warm up to +11 by next Wednesday :sunny:

                  :heehee: I feel that way when i drive down to Toronto, and they act like they have tons of snow:rolleyespink:, and its just a skiff, i feel like telling them to drive 2 hours north and you'll really see snow :thumbsup:

                  There are roads closed here everywhere, school buses all over Ontario are cancelled, and some schools closed...the kids willl LOVE that, two days in a row.

                  Soooooo when are you coming back over to visit Hamilton? :D

                        Glad to hear you weathered the storm, Penny:thumbsup::D While I know you're hardy and you love Canada...............I think I'll stick to good old Cheshire. How long does your Summer last up there by the Great Lakes.:scratch::D
