Here's the link to my Gazette story about how the snow has affected Christmas shopping here in Montreal: http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/news/business/story.html?id=bed00925-e759-417d-ba1b-4fb4661a78e5
Wish I had more time for a longer entry, but I've got three friends coming for lunch today at one. Since I'm Queen of the Multi-Task, I'm about to go for a run and pick up lettuce en route. If my guests don't have too good a time, I hope to be back at the computer for a couple of hours later this afternoon. I'm getting to the climax of my George River story. Not that I want to give away all my secrets, but there's going to be a polar bear. Did you know they are so big and fleshy that bullets rarely penetrate their skin?
I never realized that business was affected to such an extent by of the weather!! I thought more people went shopping because there was nothing else to do. Well, at least I learned two things today: what a streeter is, and that polar bears have great natural protection against bullets!! (Oh, and you're the first person I've heard who hopes their guests don't have too good a time!!)
