White Out

A cold and nasty winter storm hit our city last Friday (the worst in ten years!) and since then more than 1.5 feet of snow has fallen, making it very difficult to drive on the icy, slippery and unplowed side roads. Trying to drive on roads like these is kind of like trying to stick a bean all the way up your nose and swallow it - it's possible but it might get stuck. So I decided not to drive anywhere this weekend to be safe. Instead I took a walk around my neighborhood wearing my practical - yet fashionable- hat to take a few pictures of the craziness to show you what a Canadian winter can be like:

Look closely. Yes, there's a CAR under that blanket of snow! Not mine, thank goodness.

More snow is yet to come. This is just the beginning. I'm off to sip some hot chocolate and warm up my toes!

That hat looks awesome on you! I can't believe the snow you guys have! One of our friends got stuck in Medicine Hat. He was supposed to come back home last Friday but couldn't get to Calgary but i think he's coming back today. That's crazy! Looks nice though with all the snow. :)

Hey Marie! Just saw your comment somewhere else about NYX cosmetics not being in Canada. I dont' know which part of Canada you're @, but I know in Toronto at least, the Rexall in College Park (downtown) sells NYX. Hope this is helpful! Lovely hat btw! :D Have a great one! x http://xNTA.blogspot.com/

Hahaha, I totally did not see the car at first! That's amazing! Canadian bloggers have it so rough during winter! I am so amused by bloggers wearing a light jacket and being like "It's FREEZING today!" - you have noooo idea! You look adorable in your furry little hat!

SiSi Sparkles said...

That's an adorable hat:] wow you guys sure have alot of snow there! We just got a "winter storm" down here, and it was only about 5-6 inches and they had declared a state of emergency!!

Marie a la Mode said...

Kate: HA I totally agree! THEY HAVE NO IDEA!

Oh, damnnnnn. There's a car under there? Whoa. I know we've had bad blizzards like that here before, but I don't remember them. On the plus side, you look amazing. I totally am digging your hat!
