Ice, ice, baby

Child three is a star, an all star! He was selected to be a goalie for the Hockey Montreal Novice B all-star game to take place December 20. If the selection criteria are the same as last year, the team's being in second place last week has a lot to do with it, but I think he's deserving regardless.

After a day of snow yesterday, traffic was ludicrous. It's like this city's drivers - and municipal workers - don't know how to deal with snow. Because the going was slow, drivers would grab every idiotic advantage they could and create gridlock as they invaded intersections. It took me an hour to drive home from Child Three's hockey practice last night, normally a ten-minute drive that time of day.

We had freezing rain overnight. Our front walk and driveway are still under snow and ice because the guy we pay in advance to shovel probably shouldn't be paid in advance.

Elvi has some photos she took this morning. We kept Children Two and Three home from school because we didn't want to drive in the mess for a scheduled half day of school. We have to get Child Two out to a theatre near Papineau by 5:00 p.m. for a play rehearsal. I'm not looking forward to that, and I'm not even going to be making the trip. Elvi should leave within the hour in order to get there on time.
