Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

The midwestern child in me is delighted by the snow, but the adult Seattlite in me is getting tired of it.

We've been in Victoria since Sunday morning, after deciding to stay downtown Saturday night to be sure we could get to our ferry.

It's been cold and snowy up here in Victoria, too. Gorgeous, pretty, cold and snowy. I've come to the conclusion that while my boots are cute, they're not really cut out for serious snow, and definately not cut out for slush...

John's folks didn't make it up, due to the weather and due to Mickey's flights from Chicago getting cancelled, so it's been a quiet few days just spent with my favorite sweetheart. We've eaten and drank far too much, and had a great time.

I still want to come back and see this city in the summer though.

Here's what it looks like, courtesy of the Victoria local newspaper reader photos The inner harbour has a fine film of ice over it...and it looks like it's just starting to spit snow again. Whee fun...

Home again tomorrow...Hard to believe that Christmas is only 2 days away!!

All I want for Christmas is to be able to take a bus all the way home and to walk around on the hill without looking for the safest/least slick path. Those shoveled walks spoil me...

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!!
Woke up to fresh snow coming down here in the frozen tundra. Part of me still wishes I was at home, but this shall be good training for the South Dakota trip.
