It seems that while I was it the kitchen having some lunch it started to snow.
Amazingly, almost as soon as I returned to work/my desk things calmed down. Of course, given the size of the storm system and the whiteness of the skies I don't expect that Halifax has seen the last of this snowfall. Actually, the satellite imagery seems to suggest that we have only seen the beginning of what this thing likely has to offer.
It should be a nice winter's evening.
