Our First Major Snow

…..in week three of January

I thought we were never going to need the snow shovel this year but a big storm has moved into the northeast of the U.S. and southern Ontario. Here in Toronto it’s been snowing all day but very lightly. I did sweep the snow off the porch and did one pass with the snow shovel over the sidewalk this afternoon.

Forty kilometres west of here in Hamilton it’s been quite a different story. Lucy, our daughter’s dog, had to make a path through about 10 to 20 cm of snow to find a place to pee. This photo was taken about six hours ago. I’m sure the amount of snow has doubled since then.

Hopefully I can get out tomorrow and get some of my own ‘snow’ photos. They’ll be the first this season but Toronto often gets bypassed by the bigger storms.

A Square Evening in December – Our First Snow

December 11, 2017

Walking tonight to get in my remaining steps I stepped into a winter wonderland.  That may be a bit of an exaggeration seeing that it was really just a dusting of snow that was clinging to the ground but the evening was so serene that I didn’t want to stop walking. I took my camera with me and managed to capture some of the falling snow.
