A happy winter solstice to all out there. We officially crossed into Winter at around 9AM this morning. That means today is the shortest day of the year and it’s all brighter from now on! 🙂

There will be some rain this afternoon, possibly mixed with snow or sleet, and then we will have a break tomorrow and some more rain on Monday. Sorry folks, it doesn’t look like any snow will fall between now and Christmas, so if you want a white Christmas, I suggest covering any snow you have left outside with a tarp and ice cubes. 😉

Our Frosty didn’t last the night but hey, snow five days before Christmas isn’t bad!

If you are driving anywhere for the holidays, please drive carefully. This was the road near Little Qualicum Falls on Friday afternoon. If you are headed to the Interior especially, the roads will be treacherous.

Merry Christmas all!
