We're still stuck in the house (going on three days).....housebound!!!!
It's a skating rink outside EVERYWHERE! and no relief in sight.....too cold to melt, and cloudy to boot!!!
So, thanks to my good friend out in British Columbia who always sends me funny pics, here are the latest:

H will try to head here.....

We got the ice here in Toronto but luckily I never lost power (yet).
My sister, her husband and my nephew had to stay over and they may not get power back until Christmas Eve. Maybe.
Unexpected houseguests 2 days before Christmas, Yay!

I've had unexpected house guests for two nights.Two different sets of friends were without power. I don't mind. We may need it ourselves one day.

I love the pics, especially the map. From the "boring" province "might as well be in Ontario" where right now it is bitterly, utterly cold with a -39 C wind chill right now.

Feeling for those of you that are enduring the aftermath of the ice storm.

I am from the "too hot is summer, too cold in winter" area. We have a slight temperature reprieve right now and it will be near the freezing mark tomorrow however back to the "too cold" part in the next few days.

Looking forward to the extended daylight soon. The cold AND the dark make me want to hibernate.

...Oh, and we're still iced in here at home! The temperature is supposed to get above freezing by Saturday, so, hopefully, we'll have a thaw...

Yay for Tim's! Thanks for sharing it with us south of the "Centre of the Whole Freaking Universe."

And I miss Swiss Chalet. Call it whatever you want; many think it's gross, but I loved their chicken sandwiches and fries.

Hmm... might need to do another summer road trip up North!

That first picture is fairly poignant for me. My dh is interviewing for a job in BC very soon. So I've been looking at real estate non-stop. That "All the people that could afford to move from Ontario" part. Yeah.. apparently I am not one of those people

H and I go at least twice a month -- nearest restaurant is 40 minutes east/west of us. We usually go on a Tuesday; take advantage of Seniors' Day shopping at our favourite store, Value Village!

...anyway, back to the pics: Only in Canada...

Thanks, lookingforward! The last night our local Swiss Chalet was open, the place was absolutely mobbed, and my sibs and I didn't bother because the wait was probably for hours. I don't know why they closed up shop in my neck of the US; they had plenty of fans!

Mmm... dipping sauce...

Yeah, especially today!
Yesterday we had a high 5C (that's 40F).
Today, the temp has plummeted to -16C and feelinglike -22C. At least I got to bring in the outdoor Christmas decorations before they entered the permafrost of winter.

We haven't been too happy with Harvey's lately.....thin meat and buns taste like cardboard. I've never had poutine....the idea of cheese and gravy on fries ???

Its a bit cool today (-22C) so that makes it a perfect day to go ice fishing and no, for you southern people, that does not mean getting some ice cubes from the fridge!

Funny.. my dad and brothers are ice fishing up at the family cottage today .
This is the first winter we've had the place, hence the first ice fishing trip. Personally I can't imagine anything more unpleasant or scary (really, we are putting huts on the ice, cutting holes in and sitting there? Really? We're DRIVING across it?!) but I wasn't invited so my opinion doesn't really matter . My mom and sisters and I are firmly in the "We'll be back when we can boat over to the island" camp. No need to get all silly and cold.

Meta, I absolutely agree!
Our cottage is on an island and it's a three-season cottage. Omitting season 4 (winter) for that very reason! Driving across ice? Walking on ice? No way in hell!!!!
