Snow Day

It's the end of November, and suddenly it's already snowing in Vancouver. The snow started late Saturday night (November 25th) and continued for the next three days. The snow was so thick that Mommy found herself stranded with the kids for a whole day. Here is Mommy, Melur and Arman's little adventure on Monday, November 27th...

Daddy went to work. He managed to get a ride from our neighbor next door. That was lucky of him since the bus wasn't working. Mommy on the other hand, had to stay at home. Heba (our Nanny) could not make it. Just as well since there was a big power outage that affected the whole university, and Acadia Park included. Everything was down - classes cancelled, offices closed... even the on-campus McDonalds. The power outage started at 2am. It got really cold early that morning since no power meant no heater! However, we all managed to sleep soundly through it.

Melur and Arman woke up around 9am. After brushing their teeths (no shower since we didn't have hot water), we all had breakfast. Nothing fancy just peanut-butter and jelly with cold milk (no cooking either since we don't have gas). Afterwards, we all went out to the back and played in the snow. Everything was totally covered with snow. Mommy couldn't even get the back gate to open since the snow was too thick. We climbed it instead. We also took some pictures, made a snowman and rolled around in the snow for a bit. We stayed out for about 45 minutes and then came in when it got too cold.

We stayed in-doors for the rest of the day. We spent time reading books and playing hide-n-seek. Lunch was biscuits and cold milk. Arman and Melur were such troopers. They didn't make a fuss at all. They did ask for warm milk though, but understood that it wasn't possible. We all snuggled and slept for 2 hours in the living room to past the afternoon away. The power returned around 5pm, and Daddy came back about an hour later.

So that's what happened on November 27th, 2006.
