So some may have heard that Canada's Maritimes got some snow yesterday.

They called it a "weather bomb"; parts of Nova Scotia got 90cm of snow in 24 hours. That's 3 feet. The old record was 50.8cm. Winds were in the 60-80km range, gusting to 100km/h. The drifts in my backyard are chest-high. The basement windows are blocked entirely. The province is still under "State of Emergency."

But no storm-related fatalities. Yet, anyway.

I wish I had a digital camera and could provide some images, but I don't so I can't. More info and video clips and stuff can be found at the following places:

ctv.ca
cbc.ca
canada.com

The best part is, today is an absolutely gorgeous day. Sunny, not too cold, and, thanks to all this snow, brighter than bright.

Edit: Wa-hey! The CBC has a photo gallery right in the middle of the story I linked to above. Not the best pictures, but it looks like they're adding to it as they get more.

My parents are supposed to be flying back into Halifax later today...after 3 weeks in the Bahamas.

They'll be in for a nice little shock if they can actually land.

I usually suck it up and ask the guy at the auto parts store who "legally can't help me due to liability" (who then tells me exactly how to do it, offers me tools, and watches helpfully from the front door of the store as I make repairs in the &...
