We woke up to the snowstorm this Sunday morning.
We decided to stay home from church, which is in the city, as the roads are bad and will only be getting worse by 10:00. Thankfully it is Murray's Sunday off to be playing keyboard or we might just have tried the trip. We have done it before.
This photo, below, was taken Dec. 30, 2012 on our way to church. We met the plough/grader on the way but the roads were really snow packed and not ploughed most of the way. Once we got there it was decided to cancel the service!!

The view out our kitchen window this morning.
The wind is blowing from the northeast so it will drift the snow to the back of the house. The snow on the table is already twice that deep.
The snow is a blur in the wind.
The view out our dining room window.
See the blowing snow?
So, although church wasn't cancelled this morning (for those brave souls who live nearby), we decided it wasn't worth the risk to drive country roads in a blizzard. However, our Christmas music night has been postponed until next Sunday, December 22. We usually get a few hundred people out for it plus there are about 75 people involved including little children. Safety comes first.
This is where we'll spend the day ~ in our cozy, warm home.
I think we'll watch a Christmas movie or two and probably have a nice nap. I hope the power stays on! The winds have really picked up here in the last few minutes.
I'll have some post storm pictures to share tomorrow.
Enjoy your Sunday.
Be safe on the roads.
