Happy 2022! Home Again, Now With Winter Storms

Made it to Toronto after a late start waiting for the delayed Covid PCR test results (all negative as expected).  Spent New Year's with Tash's family there.  The kids got to see their grandmother after being unable to see her in person fore the last two years due to the stupid border closing.

This was good and Tash was able to do a lot of shopping for her mom and help with New Year's preparations.

The preparations meant we had the traditional New Year's feast:

 That's just the appetizers.

Also, after the stroke of midnight, I got a nice New Year's present:


 A nice 12 year old single malt by Cardhu.  Since most of Cardhu's production gets blended to make Johnnie Walker, I'm interested to see how it tastes.

Not a bad way to ring in the New Year. 

Then weather reports of a major winter storm started rolling in, so we helped clean up this morning and with other things that needed doing and hot the road this afternoon.

Hit some rain on the way but only got caught in the snowfall in the last 45 minutes of the way home.  Even made it up the Driveway of Doom™ -  Barely.  Tash's car started to hesitate and lose traction when we were almost up, but we managed to get it into the garage with a little fishtailing.

Then I shoveled the driveway and we got our pups back and they were happy to see us.

Everyone is tired so it's going to be an early night.  Good to be home.
