The wind is howling;
The building is shaking;
We can’t see more than 2 feet in front of us;
And people are stuck in their homes.
This is the weather we’ve had for almost a week now and we are starting to go stir crazy or is it signs of cabin fever. Rob was home from work for most of it as well as businesses, stores and schools were closed for the blizzard. We love blizzard days. Unfortunately, I work from home so I don’t benefit from blizzard days, but it was good to have Rob home after him being away for a month in Iqaluit.
The weather cleared a bit on Thursday and we were able to ‘escape‘ from the house to go to the store to get supplies and fresh groceries before the weather turned on us again. It appeared that everyone else from town had the same idea as the store was full of people and it took about 20 minutes for us to get through the till and pay for our groceries. By late Thursday we were back into a full blizzard with the wind howling up to 100 km/h.
Being home most of this week has also given us some time to start sorting through our stuff and deciding what we want to take to the boat and what should be put into storage for the year off. If you are ever get stuck in a blizzard, a good post that was written by Run Gloria Run covers what you should do to prepare, from saving water to stocking up on food.
The weather has slowly gotten better and we took the opportunity to take the dogs for a walk. I think they were happy with that decision! ~Sophia & Rob
