February 6 - Antigonish, Nova Scotia

A lot of snow fell during the night and the pavements are completely covered by well over a metre of snow. Drifts are up above people’s doors and some places I saw snow up to the first floor windows! Ploughing the streets was pointless so diggers were used to pile snow into car parks around the town. Walking into town was like going through a tunnel with snow on either side of the pavement at shoulder level.

The whole town was closed yesterday because of the amount of snow but things are picking back up again today.

Later on I am going out to dinner then to watch a hockey game. It is the local team’s last home game I heard so it should be a good one. The first time I saw a hockey game was when I was in Ontario in 1999. It is a great sport to watch so I will take plenty of pictures.
