Today was a good day to be living in this little prairie town. We awoke to a grey sort of day, lots of snowfall.....apparently we are going to get our entire winter compacted into 2 weeks this year. We are paying a bit for the warm fairly dry winter, and today neither my husband nor myself were feeling impressed by that.
However we were reminded of the centrality of our town for people from out of province heading to visit our nearest "sort of" city. Early in the afternoon we had visitors from Alberta on their way to see their son who lives in that "sort of" city. How wonderful to see good friends and have a surprise visit with them.
An hour after they left us we received a second set of visitors, this time from British Columbia. How exciting! They too were on their way to see relatives in the same "sort of" city!
Apparently we are still just far enough away from our friends' destination that they require a last pitstop along the way. We'll take that........when it comes to visiting friends we'll take whatever and whoever we can get!! We will ply them with our best teas and hot chocolate....lure them into staying long enough for a good visit!
What a great day it turned out to be.
