It's only a flurry now, but it's a bit windy. Keen Duke Street residents are digging out and there's a few people walking around. The church parking lot on the corner was almost empty this morning. As you can see, the street is not good, and the CBC news reports open with RCMP and weather reports from every Maritime province. I am now familiar with each highway stretch with poor visibility. But I'm not going anywhere today. My winter hibernation pleasure has been successfully re-invigorated with macaroni and cheese, custard, snowy music and literature, and an afternoon of positioning my chair in front of the windows to watch the snow blow horizontally.
If you need some inspiration, try some of this great winter music:
Julie Doiron's Snow Fall in November
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' Fifteen Feet of Pure White Snow
Joel Plaskett and the Emergency's Snowed In
Arcade Fire's Neighbourhood #1 (Tunnels) or Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out)
Leonard Cohen's Avalanche
