My family is lucky enough to be warm and cozy at our farm while much of Toronto is suffering from the effects of a weekend ice storm. We woke up Sunday morning to a thick layer of ice covering everything. Power stayed on at our house, but as close as a block away, all was dark.
D had left early that morning for work and by the time Littleman and I woke up, our entire block was closed in – a downed power line on one end of the street and a huge fallen tree across the other end. Luckily the tree got moved and we were able to escape to the farm Sunday night. Now, I’m sitting by the fire and looking out at the snow-covered fields.
Despite the storm, my sister and her husband managed to make it into town for the weekend to have our “Christmas” celebration. They will spent the actual holiday with her husband’s family. Littleman’s gift from my sister – a doctor costume – was a huge hit. He LOVES playing doctor and hasn’t taken the coat off since he got it.
My sister and I also got a chance to compare our 30 week baby bumps! It’s still so strange seeing my little sister pregnant, but I’m glad that we’ve had a chance to see each other a couple of times throughout our pregnancies. Hard to believe the babies will be here in a couple of months!
Hope everyone who was hit by the storm is safe and warm!
