I remember it only too well in Quebec – early risings on freezing mornings to clear the driveway snow to get to work. It’s winter here in New Zealand now, but no snow like this. And of course, it’s not Christmas as in the picture – some place on Earth it’s the 4th of July!
Nora: My word, it’s getting cold these day. Winter has certainly arrived.
Mavis: The first snow always starts about now. What a downfall last night!
Nora: We’ve had the fire going for over a month now.
Mavis: My husband keeps looking through the window. I tell you, if the weather keeps up like this I’ll have to let him in.

I bet you never knew I had a swimming pool when I lived in Quebec. Here you can see the steps leading up to it. You’re welcome to use it during the off-season.
What more need be said? Christmas lights on a snow covered tree as it goes through its twinkling combination cycle!
