This morning, as had been predicted by the weather gurus, Ottawa got its first real dump of snow.... and it hasn't stopped yet! This was the lovely view I stepped out to on my way to work.

The snow has started up again and before it's over we're expecting anywhere from 15 to 30 centimeters depending on who you ask... I love it! In fact, the closest ski hill to the city, Camp Fortune, is open, though admittedly with just the one run going.... but still an early open. Probably won't get out to do much skiing this year, what with the baby coming, I'm sure we'll have our hands full. On that note, the countdown continues, about a month left to our due date, which when one looks at our pre-natal class partners can mean any time... 2 have gone 3 weeks early, one of which gave birth on the bathroom floor after being turned back from the hospital and calling 911 a short time later! Looking forward to meeting this little guy, whenever and however he makes it out.

Last weekend was the Help Santa Toy Parade, which Yoshiko and I attended. Here are some pics, taken with my wife's camera as I've been feeling quite lazy about taking pictures these days.... maybe saving up for the flurry of pics when my little boy is born!
