Good Old Fashioned


                        Canadian winter days .

    That’s what it was yesterday with high winds snow blowing around drifts every where and everyone

     being snow bound and snowed in .

                        To keep up with the snow and drifts Papa went out every now and then and cleared the snow .

          Now before this picture below Papa was laying down against the drift which that part I didn’t see as I was            adjusting my camera settings I looked up and there was his hand just above the snow bank waving at me  taking a wee break  all though at first that’s not what crossed my mind as I didn’t realize he was playing around silly old fart  !

     There was a lot of snow and by the time Papa was done , each side of the driveway had about  3 1/2 feet of  snow !     

  After most of the day of  winds , blowing snow and drifting at about 4 pm it all settled down cleared out and the sun popped out just in time to end the day with it’s beauty as it set !

                                                 It was a good old fashioned Canadian Winter Day !

                          Today the snow is  falling again  for now winds are calm it is cold    -18°C feels like –24  °C

                                                                      Until next time friends

That looks like dangerous weather take care and stay inside. But I do love to see your photo's of the storm you are having.

Wow, that really is a crazy amount of snow!! Miggs is a daft doggy being out in that weather isn't she, any other dog would be in sitting by the fire looking longingly at it's master hoping for some fuss and love or having a nice long nap. Not your Miggs though, out on snow patrol as usual!! Checking up on Papa no doubt making sure that he was shovelling in an approved manner!! Hope as always that you are warm and safe. xx

It has been a few years since we have seen drifts this high. We had some sun this morning,when we cleared the driveway and paths and now it is snowing again and filling in quickly. Yep, a good old fashioned winter ... that I wish would end!

I would love to have at least one inch of that snow. (I've never even seen an entire inch before). I wouldn't want snow all the time, but a couple times a year would be nice.

I love how Miggs has so much fun playing in the white stuff. I think that's so cute.
