Been doing a lot of running around that I really can't write about because it involves Christmas shopping. Yesterday my lovely wife and I went down to the dentist (look ma no cavities) then before making a run for home we stopped off at a little German deli to pick up a few things. Of course some of those things have a lot to do with Christmas but some do not. I got to dive into some of the not for Christmas stuff last night.
One of the things that are as hard to come by as hen's teeth are paprika flavored potato chips. They had them at the deli so we picked up two bags. We are now down to one bag and after tonight that number will dwindle to zero.
|Yesterday driving towards a snow squall line.|
Over the last two days we have been playing hide and seek with snow streamers AKA squalls while driving. Coming back from the semi big city we passed through one. Seeing the snow streamer before driving into it was cool while driving into it, not so much.

Can't really see it but way off it's snowing
Today it was the same thing with the added warning that an Alberta Clipper was bearing down upon us. Unlike yesterday today I alone ventured into the crowds seeking out gifts for family and friends. Right now we are around half done and the clock is ticking. No worries, worst case people will get gifts from the drug store purchased on the twenty fourth at around ten minutes before closing.

been the way the roads are lately
