First Snow on my last day in St. John's!

Snow on St. Joseph's Lane
Apparently, it started at 3am, but by the time I opened the front door at the Hometel (the great little condo/hotel/B&B I am staying in), there were at least 15cm of snow on the ground.  People were out with shovels and snowblowers, and a few people were pitching in to help a guy who had already got his car stuck trying to drive through a drift in the middle of the road.  It is not too cold out (just hovering around zero), but I am pretty sure that we are going to have to ditch the plan to drive out to cape spear for the day.  Slipping in the snow and sliding off the most easterly point in north america into the waves below?.... well... that would be just like me and is not really on my 'bucket list' of things to do in this life! 

So intsead, I have contented myself with 15 minutes of perusing through images of cape spear on the web, and I will just have to come back to this amazing place for another visit someday.  Today, I will hang out in coffeeshops down the street, enjoying the sights of winter outside the window!
