It’s like this before a MAJOR storm

It’s March! And this winter has been fantastic. I can’t believe the difference from last year. Many days the sun has been shinning and warm through my windows…actually making me feel like I should be Spring cleaning. Oh the dust bunnies on those kind of days haha. But I will wait a just bit.

Last year EVERYONE was tired of snow and snowstorms, begging for a reprieve from snowstorm after snowstorm. It’s one week til March Break, one of the busiest weeks for travellers heading south to escape the cold and snow.

This year is not so bad…many will still go…We usually enjoy a Winter escape in February, but this year is a little different. It’s Cuba in April for our son’s wedding, (later than usual) and I’m just thankful the weather has been so great, otherwise I would have wanted two vacations.

People in Nova Scotia who love to get out and about and photograph our beautiful province have been sharing some gorgeous photos …sunrises, sunsets, beach and wave photos, and signs of an early spring… and because we are a coastal province, many learn to watch the water to see the signs in the winds and the waves. I guess the last couple days the water along the coast has been acting the way it does before a MAJOR storm comes.

“The Bay of Fundy had plenty of power tonight. It’s not that the waves were overly large, it was the wind speed and energy coming from the ocean. It’s like this just before most major storms – I hope I am wrong.”~ Phil Vogler

Weather predictions are that we are in for a snowstorm this weekend. It’s hard to believe looking outside…other than the temperature is now -10 rather than the +15 it was earlier in the week.

What will the weekend hold? For the last couple storms we have been on the right side of the currents only getting rain. I don’t mind rain, it doesn’t need to be shovelled.  Either way, even if we do get a major storm and (cover your ears) snow…it won’t last!

Have a GREAT weekend! We are in to March now and just a few weeks until it’s “officially” Spring! SPRING is my favourite season of all!!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
