No Pictures today, but we had some snow here, actually so much so they stopped all buses in Oslo city for hours. Slightly tendencies to chaos, and good for the news :-)

We had some snow here today too, but it pretty much melted long before it would have been a nuisance... ???

The trees and flowers are creating their yellow snow (clouds of pollen) now.  Now to finish that bottle of loratadine I started last summer.

For the first time since March 18th, we are back up to a two lane road! A plow and Snow blower spent all day in the Cove widening out our cow path to return it to a normal width road! We still can't see over the banks, but at least now, we have two lanes to drive on! It took them all day to do from the highway past here, and they have headed back up the road now to widen the upper road. The driving experience has been pretty claustrophobic for a while now!

At least you only have snow issues, according to the PC game "Unturned", PEI is full of zombies, but that said the game makes PEI really tiny, and a rather odd shape... ;D

Note the real PEI is all white  ;D The other one looks more like Prince Edward and Marion Islands (Volcanic Islands) in the South African Antarctic, or perhaps a blend of the two  :) So let the "REAL" PEI stand up!

Nope, cos that's the "Arena" map, not the PEI map...  ;D

Been playing the game myself and I've still yet to find the telephone museum... ???

Besides, it Waaaay too green. Guess what? It is snowing again! We have gotten a few cm. this morning - they only forecast 2 cm., but it is way over that now.. By noon, 10-12 cm. Sigh.... Will this winter ever end?

Museum is buried under the snow!

Woke up to 9" inches of fresh heavy wet snow this morning.  Weather forecast predicted morning snow shower. Yikes!!!!
