a picture is worth a thousand words

Winter Wonderland

Some of you have had enough of the snow and cold this year. Perhaps like me you are wondering whatever happened to all that global warming we were promised…

The red barn near Sudbury

One of the earliest storms to hit the area was well before winter arrived. And I was in Sudbury driving to Northbay when overnight we had freezing rain. Come morning and the car was encased in a shell of ice. The hotel provided us knives and screw drives to chisel through the ice and get the doors open. The car was idling for over an hour before it was in any condition to be driven. Got some lovely winter pictures during that drive though.

Abandoned!

 

Sticking out

The last time we had a snow storm, (thats pretty often this year), I rushed out pretty early with my camera, driving and clicking around my neighbourhood. Its a pretty picture of winter wonderland with the fresh snow and snow topped trees.

The other day I walked the dog around the lake and ponds behind our home, all bundled up as it was well below the freezing mark. The ponds were frozen and there were so many people – families, kids and youngsters playing hockey or enjoying skating around on a bright crisp day. I did feel totally overdressed watching some younsters on the frozen pond playing with nothing more than a Tee shirt. Oh to be young!

My dog loves the snow - our deck after the storm

Cocoa in the snow

The church on 10th line

First steps on ice

The house around the corner

Clearing after the storm

Shoveling time

Braving the storm

Our street - Snowflake Lane

Our home

The frozen bush

In the bleak midwinter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen,
snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter,
Long ago.
