New Year's Day Shania ran the last leg of the Olympic Torch Run in her

Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!! I've been in the North Country of
Ontario, Canada and, after a crazy drive through a snowstorm to get here,
I finally made it North for the holidays to take in the spirit of a great,
white Christmas. What would normally be a two-and-a-half hour drive took
over seven hours with several accidents along the way. We experienced dead
stops of long waits during whiteouts. Miles of vehicles were lined up
bumper to bumper, blanketed in snow from hours of sitting and waiting for
news of what was happening up ahead. Very scary driving conditions, and I
really felt lucky to have made it safely in the end. It was centimeter
after centimeter of snow falling for hours on end. Even we Northerners can
only cope with so much snow all at once. I have personally never seen such
a crisis just over falling snow, but this snowfall was an exception. We
normally cope pretty well, and falling snow is just a part of another
winter day, but this storm was a doozy! To read more check out the
