Well, we got our biggest snow storm of the year (ok, make that the biggest snow storm ever recorded in Ottawa!) yesterday with a record-setting 37 cm of snow in one single day. The most snow that has fallen in a single December snowfall came in 1977, when we received 30.4 cm (taken from the Ottawa Sun). So, I guess we blew that one out of the water!

So here’s the scene (as Sam witnessed and was a part of yesterday): Six guys hovering around a gleaming red, 2-stage, 8 hp Toro snowblower after conguering the snow off one another’s driveways. Each with a beer in their hands, as if they were mighty warriors celebrating their victories, admiring this machine like it was a pimped out 1969 Camaro Z28. Ok, so we live in the burbs and that is pretty exciting!

more snow, anyone?
