I live in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada and we’ve been experiencing some wild blizzard conditions for the past 5 days. When I say wild, I mean 70cm of snow fell in 24 hours. The city is paralyzed and has been in a state of emergency since Friday.
Thankfully, we had it pretty easy as we didn’t lose power or have a crisis that required emergency assistance. Ambulances couldn’t get around the city and everyone working in hospitals and care facilities literally worked for days on end as their colleagues simply couldn’t get to work to relieve them. I have so much respect and gratitude for everyone who has worked through this storm to keep us all safe. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
But in true Newfoundland style, there have been so many funny stories come out of this crisis. People are getting out of their houses and talking to their neighbours. Having fires and spontaneous parties.
I love this clip by Mark Critch. He sums it up best and is a really funny man!
Schools are closed until next Monday so we are hunkering down for a few more days. My girls are so bored they are actually playing together. Haha.
This made me laugh today! Thanks Leslie Ann 🙂 xo
Here are a few shots from the past few days. Georgia asked if she could get a couple cans of Vienna sausages, even thought they are “only cabin food”. Yep…cabin food and state of emergency food :-).
Stay warm and safe! Don’t forget to check on the people around you! Some people are out of power and running low on supplies.
Until next time!
Only joy, only love,
