‘Twas 17 nights before Christmas… and all through downtown St. Catharines…

Are we going to get a White Christmas in St. Catharines?

Tough to say what the next 17 days will bring weather-wise but if this morning (December 8) at about 4 am is any indication, things are looking pretty picturesque, peaceful and powdery for the holiday season.

This is St. Paul St (or Highway 8, if you prefer) looking east… before the cars… before the people… before the shop-owners. Just a downtown with freshly-covered snow.

Silent Night, indeed.
