Well, some years I have headed back to work on the 27th but this year it’s nothing until the 2nd January … which is good as today is a snow day, a big time snow day.  The pictures below were taken around noon and there is at least another six hours of this forecast before it starts to taper off.

Snow in Quebec (at christmas) is just wonderful and tomorrow the snowshoe trail in the arboretum will be waiting for us.  This is dry, powdery snow – none of your wet and heavy mess.
