The Day After

The Day After The Storm
This past Friday we got yet another snow storm - in fact, it was a blizzard! The next day, on Saturday, it was beautiful, sunny, and a little mild. We were left with a huge snow drift from our front door to about 3/4 of the way down the front walk. It took me nearly 2 hours to shovel, it was that huge. Mind you, about 10 minutes was spent scraping the car off AND taking some photos to document how much snow we have, but rest of the time was shovelling. Today, they are calling for an additional 15-20 cm (like we need more snow!), some freezing rain, warmer temps and rain.

Snowstorm from Feb. 6/11
Here's a photo from the latest snowstorm we had this past weekend. It doesn't look all that bad in the shot, but it was (I adjusted the colour using Elements and that took some of the stormy look out of it). This part of the tree is up quite high, and the snow is right up to it. To be honest, a lot of the snow in that area has been blown over from the driveway (we get it plowed out), but there has been a ton of snow this winter. I'm hoping to get out and take a few shots of it from the driveway. This photo was taken out the front window.

Through The Branches

This is just a snapshot. A couple of weeks ago, I was up early (as I usually am during the weekday in case I get called for work) and was witness to God's beautiful handiwork. I wasn't trying to take the "perfect" photo, but I wanted to capture the colours of the sky before it changed.

Usually the saying goes, "red/pink sky in the morning, sailor take warning" to indicate that there is going to be inclimate weather that day. The morning I took this photo turned out to be nice, though I think later on in the week we had a snow storm
