We have enjoyed an exceptional fall and an easy pace into winter here on Prince Edward Island. However winter arrived in force over the last week. We thought the first snow storm of the year last weekend was impressive, however this weekend another storm demonstrated that Mother Nature was just getting going.
We were warned to be ready with ‘storm chips’ and fuel for the emergency generator for last weekend’s storm. Admittedly we were a little disappointed when it wasn’t as epic as we thought it was going to be. Not to worry, we got our fix one week later.
We are very happy that house sitting’s main requirement is to look after the pets and home. In that way we are able to stay inside and deal with this type of weather on our own terms. It brought back many memories of working outside in similar conditions, and I am glad those days are past. Watching the storm through windows and sipping a warm drink is a much better way of experiencing this type of event.
