    We had snow in Toronto this morning as well. Time to get used to brushing off my car. For the last 4 years I have lived in a condo with underground parking. This is going to be a rude awakening

    I am WFH today, our snow is already gone.

    M loved it this morning though! First time he was really with it enough to understand.

    Our snow turned to freezing rain overnight and both kids have far away hockey tournaments this weekend

    I went to the daycare with S because we had to haul in all their winter crap, so going in the opposite direction didn't help me.

    Also, I need new snow boots. Why are boots so hard, I hate them all.

    Ugh I need boots too. No daycare though, closed today for teacher inservice.
    So I guess I get to haul all that stuff tomorrow. Yay.

    They're pricey, but I have these Manitobah Mukluks and so far love them.

    I know someone who has those in the light brown colour and they are gorgeous!! I have a pair of the tall suede snowy owl mukluks and they are the warmest boots I’ve ever owned. Plus they are waterproof, so melted snow doesn’t leave any marks.

    Oh and if you're wanting a pair I believe code CP25 will get you 25% off.

    It's worse today! All of the snow (we ended up with like 7") is still on the road but now it's suuuuuper cold. My wipers are still frozen and I had my car running with defrost full blast for over 30min.

    We got a light dusting and S was very disappointed that he had to go to school. "But snow days means stay home days?"

    I’ve been wanting some new winter boots, my Sorels are just so clunky. Do you find they fit true to size, @Zoomzoom?

    Ok I just went and checked NWS, we got 9.3".

    I've been eyeing those Mukluks, but I could never decide what size to order so I'm curious too.
