St. John’s, Newfoundland and the Avalon Peninsula were hit by a major winter storm that brought 52 centimetres of snow and winds up to 121 kilometres per hour (that is hurricane force for the interested reader!).  These pics show what greeted me, my husband and two kids when we opened the front door at about 8 am January 11.   It actually was another foot higher by noon when we ventured outside to start shovelling and snow blowing the snow from our driveway.  After three and a half hours of grueling work ( and play for the kids), we came in looking forward to a hot meal and were faced with a power outage.  We were equipped with a good emergency kit though and were still able to make a great meal and had hot chocolate and tea to finish it off.  As we have electric heat, our house started to get pretty cold by about 830pm and we were all in bed by 930pm to stay warm.  We slept like logs!  Hope you enjoy the pictures and keep warm out there!

    • Wow!! It is all in what you get used to really! My kids love the snow so I had not choice but to love it too! We have lots of snuggly blankets and a house with power again!!! Although, my son’s school is still without power today but he was thrillled to have yet another day off school:)

    • Yes, that’s what we thought when we opened the door! We did very much enjoy our time together, it’s a rare chance we get to talk and play games that are often forgotten on the shelf! It inspired the kids to re-instate family game night and we love it! Thanks Margie, Lorelei
