Easy Decisions Are Hard to Make

We were supposed to be heading home to Powell River today, but a little bit of weather got in the way. It's late, but this is the first snow of the season for the Sunshine Coast.

Things seem to easing from the south, but the morning forecast is calling for freezing rain in Vancouver, never an easy drive anyway, and snow along Highway 101 on the Lower Sunshine Coast. If it was just Wayne and me, we'd probably go, but this trip Mom and Stick Tail are riding along with us. Feeling more protective of my 93-year young mom, we are opting to wait another day for warmer weather and light rain.

Wayne and I can't wait to get back home to our cabin up the lake. Here's a picture from last year after the first snow. I think you can see why we want to get there. We'll start a fire in the wood stove, snuggle up on the sofa, drink hot chocolate and munch on popcorn.

It just doesn't get any better than that! - Margy


  1. You are right, it doesn't get much better. Thanks for visiting my blog Squirrel's View. I live about 4 hours from Morgantown in the tip of the Eastern Panhandle at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah River.

    Enjoyed your blog.

  2. Wow what a great spot.When will the lake freeze and how long does it take for freeze-up? How do you travel in mid-winter Does your cabin have electricity or do you use propane/fuel oil. I would not have thought to make a short video of a burning fire as you did. What a great idea. Thanks so much for the post

  3. We Canadians do love our hot chocolate and fire side popcorn! Hope you get there soon!

  4. Love the fire,I have a disc I can put on the tV that looks likt that only real is better.You be carful going home. Tell your Mom and Wayne hi for me.

  5. Looks and sounds like a great escape! Safe Trip.

  6. Whoa, Margy, your little cabin in the woods is a paradise, it seems! Thanks for sharing the crackling fire! :)

  7. Glad to hear you guys are getting some snow, we've already had more than our share. And great pics as always.

    All the best
