SNOW FOR RENT


Enough snow for you? It's enough for us I tell ya! Winter wonderland my %$@@$%%! LOL.


It is impressive though. As canadians we are used to harsh winters but some are more spectacular then others. This year is one of those with the amount of snowfall. It counts among the top snow fall yrs for sure.


Hard to believe that it will be gone in a few months, and the flowers will be blooming yet again lol. I think that is the only thing that keeps us all sane to be honest lol. Chris , LOVES all the snow and the cold winters. Odd really coming from a country that has much milder seasons.


So here are a few pics taken this weekend. You can also double click on any of them to see more in the flickr page. Below, I am infront of the house directly across the street from us. You can hardly see the house itself lol.

WE HAVE THIS MANY SNOWFLAKES!

We have THIS MANY snowflakes!


This was taken last Sat. 16th/ feb...the first day Chris had been out all week...Thankfully recovering nicely from pnuemonia...we went out for our Valentines supper. A favorite fondue resturant. It was perfect.


The snowbank is higher then Chris but u can't really tell by this pic angle. He is 6' tall, but the tips of the branches touching the snowbank, are about 9-10 feet from the ground.


Chris is 6 feet tall..the bank is higher.


Catching snowflakes on her nose.


I luv to catch snowflakes on my nose.


This is taken from the front landing of my house, looking out.


Taken from my doorway.


Looking down my street...most of the houses are hidden lol!


Looking down my street.

These pictures are amazing! You weren't kidding about the amount of snow this year....It is almost unbelievable! Thanks for shoeing us this Winter Wonderland....!

I love the things you shared with me that you made as favors for your Wedding Guests....I am going to go to your Flicker and check them out!
I have had those stones for probably 12 years or more....! I have some bigger ones, too...They are outside in my garden, sort of....! Such a wonderful idea...!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Oh my goodness that now is simply AMAZING!!! Glad your Chris is up and about. (How's the holiday planning going? Ours is going along lovely)

loves angels, but im going to pass on the snow. We have the problem, OF just having one of our wettest summers, in a long time. Put it this way one of ours was down to about 28% in the last 2 weeks alone, its up to 35%. Thats alot of water, even though its not raining much through the day in the city i live in. At night it pelts down, my yard asnt tries out in over 3 weeks, and i live on the side of a hill.

That snow looks gorgeous! Of course, I'm not the one having to put up with it but we don't really get snow where I live so I can afford to love it. Your pics are great and that is one helluva lot of snow!

Glad your Chris is feeling better and you were able to get out for fondue. Sounds lovley :)

That's a real winter wonderland but I imagine it outstays its welcome after a while. I am so weary of the miserable cold weather we are having this year. The only time I am really warm is in a hot bath. I'm beginning to look like a prune!

Anna said...

I was gonna complain about all the snow we've gotten this winter but after those pics I think I'll be thankful that my house isn't almost completely covered by it.

I'm glad Chris was well enough to go to the Fondu place.

Keep warm.

*hugs*

Moon,
We have had some terrible cold snaps but have been spared the amounts of snow you have. Reminds me of the blizzard in the late 70's...LOL showing my age.
Miss you.
Thanks for the pics.
