Hi did you know that I snuck onto this list ?  I signed up a
week ago to see what it was like and see a whole lot of familiar names :)
Now I get twice as much email!!

It snowed all day Friday, but it's sitting on the lawns and gardens and not
on the roads.  I got the garden ready this week for winter, so what fell is
just fine, except for a few shrubs that are hanging to the ground with the
weight of this stuff.  It wouldn't be so bad if the leaves were off.  We
have not had a frost here yet so things are a little weird!!

Tkae care and hope all the Canucks on this list have a wonderful
Thanksgiving...we are blessed!
