Snow, Snow and More Snow

it’s been quite the year for accumulations of snow

After a couple of warmer days much of the snow has melted but there are still snow banks at the edges of peoples driveways and unmelted snow in the parks. We’ve been having this thaw, freeze, thaw cycle of weather for the last month and in between we’ve been getting more snow. For the rest of the week and into next week there are at least four days of snow forecast. Here are some of the days right after a night of gently falling snow.

Sunday Trees – April 25, 2021

….even though spring officially arrived over a month ago Mother Nature had to bless us with one more snowfall

Deep in the woods the snow hung around a little longer

Going for a Winter Evening Walk

….during a snowstorm

Well I guess I’m exaggerating a bit but it was snowing and it was cold. When my husband said he wanted to walk in the snow and take some photos of the street I quickly put on my coat so that I could join him. I needed some more steps to get to my 10 000 step goal anyway.

It’s nice seeing some of the Christmas lights still on. This year people have decided that we need more colour and light in our lives because of COVID so many homes are still brightly lit in the evenings. It’s quite pretty against the snow.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Sense of Hearing

…thanks to Cee for hosting theĀ Fun Foto Challenge

I guess photos with this theme should evoke a sound in the imagination. Here’s what I came up with.

The sound of rushing water
