It’s time to escape when…
…squirrels are hanging upside down to get the last of the maple keys…
…the snow blows across the highway and the temperatures drop to a bone chilling -40 C with the windchill…
… and ice builds up around the fire box of the fire place!
I am ready for my jaunt to Virginia and New Jersey where I can expect snow and temperatures easterners are not used to! I am ready with my down jacket I bought for Whitehorse last fall. It was a bit overkill for Whitehorse in November but I anticipate that it will be the perfect attire for cold breezes off the Atlantic Coast!
I am at the airport early… (always something to look forward to when you live on the prairies). Looking at the departure boards around me I realize it could all be worse, I could be flying to Toronto where it is -21 C this morning. It has warmed up considerably here: It was only -9 C when we left the hotel. All is well… oh yes, and before I forget: The squirrel was right side up by the time we left home yesterday.
Enjoy your day! Mine will be long, arriving in Virginia around 11:15 pm tonight.
