We got another dusting of snow last night in my neck of the woods but it was nothing compared to the dumping last Friday! I mean, you think we’d be used to it up here in The Great White North, but oh no! It’s ‘snowmagedon’ and we all panic! I wasn’t really impressed when my very pregnant wife commuted over an hour through the storm to her school and I was doubly unimpressed when I realized that I had to shovel my store’s gigantic parking lot in addition to the driveway at home! The exercise probably did me good though.
I took some photos to show you, which is no big deal if you’re from the neighbourhood, but I know there are readers from all over the world and I thought you might want to see what winter has been like around here. Enjoy! Fingers crossed spring is on the way soon!
And here’s our place with one tiny little tree. It’s a flowering crabapple I planted in the fall along with a buddy across the lawn. Plus a little yew hedge that I hope isn’t killed by all of this winter! You can see how I’d finished shovelling the drive and it was already beginning to turn white again. I re-shoveled 3 or 4 times that day!
The snow was piling up in the backyard too! Isn’t it funny how the backyard becomes like a forgotten world in the winter? I love to see the bunny and bird tracks in the snow since they’re it’s primary inhabitants all winter.
More snow out front on the road – where are those ploughs? Aren’t those stately old homes gorgeous covered in snow? I have to say it’s a great view from our yard. We’re very thankful. I’m glad the snow has gone down though – for now!
