After The Snow

Well, we didn't beat the storm on Wednesday afternoon and had a wild and woolly ride into Halifax. But we arrived safe and sound, and thankfully didn't pass any accidents along the way. I think that drive goes into my top 3 worst drives of all time. Thursday morning we were up early, and headed downtown for my appointment with the medical oncologist. A few hours later was my first radiation treatment. We arrived back home yesterday afternoon, to find 1 1/2 feet of new snow, a freshly plowed driveway (prearranged before we left), and 2 foot drifts on the pathway to the door. A short while later, John had the walkway shovelled enough to get in the door and we were snug at home with a fire blazing in the wood stove. It's good to be home.

Today's appointment is not until 5:15 pm, which gives us most of the day at home but cuts into the wild Friday nights we usually have (ha!)

So glad you made it there and back safely - that was some storm on Wednesday.

Must have been a pristine winter wonderland at your place when you got home - no tracks, just snow, snow, snow. Beautiful :)

I've been thinking about you this week and your treatments. Praying that all will go well and you won't have a hitch!

Must have been a rough drive on Wednesday - glad you made it safely and that you had arranged to have the driveway cleared too - good planning! I hope you have a restful weekend.
