That was in my birthday

yesterday night we had a bad blizzard i even felt that the roof of my house will fly , the wind was so strong about 160km/h , and the snow falling was unbelievable .so i work up in my birthday morning and we supposed to go to work and when i saw our car how it was covered by snow i knew that we wont go to work , and yes we wont go to our work , actually nobody went to work or school every thing was closed on Tuesday it was like weekend but not weekend .
well here in that place where i must have my garbage box but where it is ????
well i think it is deep deep down .

this is the first step of the work bring the shovels and ahh start work and make muscles , it was not easy at all , but we have to let our car free unless we will be stuck at home , so here we are started our work .
this is the son of our neighbour , he was playing and making an ice cave , well they did not have problem like us , because they have houses cover their cars besides them while us our house is in an open space so welcome to snow .
well can you believe this , i could not , i was working and taking pics at the same time , and as i told u it was just like a weekend every body went out to take pics that in case they did not have problem with the snow and their houses , and many of people like us they are stuck with the snow either they are trying to save their houses or their cars , so i chatted with few people were walking and i asked them ( this is the first winter to me in Canada , so is this a usual amount of snow or no? ) and many of them told me that they did not saw this much of snow or a blizzard like this for about 30 years ago , can u believe it ?
thanks God that our house did not have problem with the snow it was only our car .
here is my husband working , i was doing the shoveling and he removed the snow away .

This is our poor car ..... but do not worry our car we will help you .......

well after an hour and only this we could do it , i told you it is not easy thing !!

then here is our hero came to help the poor hands , this man came just to visit our neighbour and it seems he was looking on us from their window , and he felt we are really need a civilizing help ..lol , so he came out side and he took this snow machine out of his van and he came to help us , for that he was our HERO .
And here he is , we were like cutting the snow in the ground by our shoveling and he do the rest , so we made a good team .
And here is our car it started to be clear but this is not every thing there is still too much work .

Did u see , this supposed to be a small store but now it is just snow .
mountains and mountains of snow
Do u know how took from us just to do this , 3 HOURS , ohhh yes boy!
Then we went to the hospital where we work and that was the back door of the hospital they told us that it was completely covered by snow , the good thing that day , NO WORK ;)
This is the road lead to the hospital after clean it from the snow .

Well seems there is another people like us :P

This is my story ;)

I really love to share you with this story , it is our story ( me & my husband ) and out trip from Toronto to Newfoundland .
Well after staying in Toronto for 20 days , it is the time to go back to our home .
Our trip was on Thursday at 12:10 pm , we arrived to the airport at about 10:30 am , and we found that our trip delayed 30 min which is nothing with us , so we get in the airplane at about 12:35 pm , and here we are in the air , normally the duration of the trip takes about 3 hours and a half from Toronto to Newfoundland (St’Johns) .
So when we felt that we arrived St’Johns , we felt like the plane took a u-turn , we did not understand what was going on???? And here we are the pilot spoke to the passengers ( attention dears passengers please , we arrive to St’Johns but we could not land in the airport due to weather problems so we will go back to Halifax and we will know the situation from there , but hopefully we will flight today to St’Johns ) and you hear ahhhhh NOOOO from the passengers , so another hour to go to Halifax (Nova Scotia) , and at about 5pm we landed in Halifax airport , and normally we thought that we will get out from the air plane and get in the airport but no this is the surprise !!!!
The pilot took his way to the gates place and when he arrived one he took time to let us know what is happening!! Then another announcement from the pilot ( attention pleas , well due to the freezing weather there is a problem in this gate but we will go to another gate to let you get out to the airport so please stay in your seat ) .
Well until now it is normal , then the plane took its way to go to another gate , and then it stopped for about 45 min and we did not know what is happing??
And here we are another announcement from the pilot ( attention passengers pleas , well it seems that the airport does not have staff to take care of you so we will stay in the air plane until we have an okay from St’Johns and we will flight to St'Johns ) and here we hear the passengers said ahhhhhhhhhhh come on !!!
Any way , the bad other thing it was that our seat me and my husband was in the last seat of the plane and I was sitting in the middle between my husband and another nervous man .
By that time which was about 5:30pm , the passengers start to use the washroom and they did a long line to get into the washrooms , which were in the last of the plane that means behind us ,and another thing the airplane service only drinks for free , but if you wanna eat you have to pay five dollars , and we have only 5 dollars cash that time so I told my husband to save them for the emergency .
So one hour went then 30 min then we hear the pilot again ( well ….eehhh … passengers .. I am going to tell you about the situations in St’Johns it seems the drive way for the plane is freezing and they are trying to clear it so we will wait in the air plane until we know when we will can flight )
Oh my God , okay but waiting until when ???? a question with out an answer ???
So we waited for another 2 hours and then me and my husband got hungry so we bought a sandwich and we share it together , thanks God for serving the drinks for free .
Well now I will tell you for how long we stayed stuck in the air plane for 5 and a half hours ohhh yes .
Then thanks to them they allowed us to get into the airport after waiting for 5 hours and a half , can you believe it !!!
So we get in the airport , and we could buy food by credit card , so we stayed in the airport for tow hours which mean until 10:30pm .
So we stayed stuck in the airport for 5 hours and a half and then in the airport for 2 hours , then they made an announcement asking us to go back to the air plane .
We were all happy , so we get back in the airplane and after all the passengers took their place and every body is ready to go home and happy, we waited for 30 min and we felt there is another bad thing is coming , and here what the pilot said (attention passengers please , I am afraid to tell u that we have to wait in the air plane for a whole until we know when we will can flight to St’Johns ) and here all the passengers screamed ( cancel the flight cancel the flight ) and again the pilot ( well I can not cancel the flight so thank you for your patient )
Ahh my God , and they put a movie for us to pass the time , but nothing will pass the time and we stayed in the airplane for another 2 hours from 10:30 pm to 12:30 am .
Then the pilot made a last announcement ( attention please , we cancelled the flight , so every body will get out of the plane and call the air Canada to make a re-reservation for tomorrow and have a nice night )
Nice night they took our night , so we are in a strange city , we do not what to do ?
But we found 4 people we met them in the plane they came to us and asked us if we want to share a van with them and go to the down town and stay in a hotel so we agreed because we are so so tired .
And we went to a hotel and it took about 30 min to reach the hotel , so we entered our room at 3:00 am and we slept .
And the next day we took another flight at 4pm and we made it , we are finally home .
Finally we are in our sweet home.
Well this is my story hope u enjoy it !!
And if you are going to travel ……. DO NOT TRAVEL IN THE WINTER TIME ;)

History of Valentine's Day

Saint Valentine's Day or Valentine's Day is on February 14. It is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other; sending Valentine's cards or candy. It is very common to present flowers on Valentine's Day. The holiday is named after two men, both Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
The day is most closely associated with the mutual exchange of love notes in the form of "valentines." Modern Valentine symbols include the heart-shaped outline and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten notes have largely given way to mass-produced greeting cards. The U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide, making the day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year behind Christmas. The association estimates that women purchase approximately 85 percent of all valentines
Valentine's Day was probably imported into North America in the 19th century by British settlers. In the United States, the first mass-produced valentines of embossed paper lace were produced and sold shortly after 1847 by Esther Howland (1828-1904) of Worcester, Massachusetts. Her father operated a large book and stationery store, and she took her inspiration from an English valentine she had received. Since 2001, the Greeting Card Association has been giving an annual "Esther Howland Award for a Greeting Card Visionary."
In the second half of the 20th century, the practice of exchanging cards was extended to all manners of gifts in the United States, usually from a man to a woman. Such gifts typically include roses and chocolates. In the 1980s, the diamond industry began to promote Valentine's Day as an occasion for giving jewelry.
The day has come to be associated with a generic platonic greeting of "Happy Valentine's Day."
In some North American elementary schools, students are asked to give a Valentine card or small gift to everyone in the class. The greeting cards of these students often mention what they appreciate about each other
