This is what it looks like in my little corner of the world this morning.

But my sister got here on the train before it hit (although the train passed through some of the early storm about half-way here), and Hailey arrived from Whistler before it hit, AND -- the part I couldn't say on my blog earlier because Julie reads it -- her daughter, my niece Doneen, also flew in from Calgary on Friday night, so we had a great surprise birthday celebration for my sister yesterday! We treated her to a day at the spaaaaaaahhhhh to celebrate her 60 years -- a back massage and facial in the morning, lunch, then a manicure and pedicure in the afternoon, then a hairstyle with my daughter Mischa, and then we had a 'girl's night out' dinner -- me and my daughters and Julie and her daughter. It was a great day ... and the snow started to fly as we got safely home from it all!

Hailey would like to get back to Vancouver this morning, but we'll have to see if the buses are even running.

Meanwhile, during a break in the festivities yesterday, I took myself down to Clover Point for some knitting, and watched this...

There were about 40 small boats out FISHING, and this sailboat trying to get in to the harbour.

Paton's Kroy purple variegated socks ready to start the heel flap...

Doneen and Julie will go Christmas shopping downtown today, and I'll be working at the store this afternoon!

Sounds like a wonderful celebration. Just to let you know I'm working on my 10th children's hat. Slowly but surely.
