Snow, Glorious Snow

Isn’t snow great?

So it took a record storm to get me to write one last post before the end of 2012. It’ll be short and sweet because sometime between 30 Days of Photos III (yes, I’m still traumatized) and that half a turkey I think I ate on my own last week, my capacity to look at a computer screen has vanished. Said capacity is likely buried under 3 feet ofย  snow somewhere.

Anyway, here are some photos of the cold, and the wind, and the snow. If you dress for it, it’s quite amazing. The sun is even warm and takes the edge off the biting wind. I recommend wearing a scarf up to your eyeballs.

And with that, best wishes to everyone and we’ll see y’all in the new year.

  • As much as I like an occasional snow, that looks like a little more than what I would want. I am in Chicago for a couple of days and it is LIGHTLY snowing here. I am suppose to arrive back into Kansas City just in time for a major snow storm. I hope the weather guys are wrong.

  • I’ll visit you in the Summer, Mike. That snow just wouldn’t work with my shoes.

  • Damn! The snow is deep. We had snow, too, but only several inches. Your winters look too cold and your snow too deep.

  • Wow! That is a lot of snow. It would bring my town to a screeching halt for days. Great pictures…love that curved staircase from what looks to be a very cool looking home. Stay warm!

  • 35-40 cm of snow the day we left Ottawa (Aylmer) and something like 28cm on Boxing Day. I’m not looking forward to coming home from Panama next week. Sigh.

  • Hey Mike! LOVE that first photo! Indigo

  • Oh my….too cold (looking) but gorgeous. Happy New Year guys ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hey, long time no see, Roschelle. A Happy New Year to you too ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Thanks, Indigo! Have a great new year.

  • Panama? PANAMA? How much snow did they get??

  • As long as you dress you it, it’s not so bad and those curved staircases are a Montreal staple. You’ll see many many homes like that in this neighbourhood. Happy new year!

  • It’s pretty deep, even for us. No one expected that much at once! We actually got off easy that last couple of years. Happy new year.

  • Will you really? I promise there will be no snow in the summer. Happy NY!

  • They often are wrong, so there’s still a chance. Happy New Year, Cheryl.

  • Um, none, but that was the whole point of coming here. Duh.

  • I like how you captured the blowing snow in the second pic.
    Up north saw 80+ cms and none of the rain that we saw earlier in December.

  • That looks a lot like Rochester, Nicky! Happy New Year! (I’m still trying to recuperate from those 30 Days of Torture, myself.)

  • I would LOVE to have that kind of snow over here!! Happy New Year, Mike!

  • Blah! I’ve used the snowblower more times this week than I did all of last year. I agree it’s pretty and some great photo opps, but it wears thin on me eventually! I notice those sidewalks up your way, though. The one time I was in Montreal in the winter, I noticed people don’t shovel a ton! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Haha, it depends where you are. My neighborhood is pretty dense so it does sometimes get to a point where there just isn’t anywhere to put the snow until the street gets cleared.

  • Snow is great at the beginning of the season, until we get sick of it. Then it isn’t. Happy New Year to you too, Meleah!

  • Mike. It’s Mike! Happy New Year to you too!

  • Yep. everything is primed for some good skiing. Happy New Year.

  • Happy New Year, Mike and Nicky. Thanks for sharing the snow photos. I prefer mine dusting the tops of distant hills. Ours, by the way, are bright green with new grass. You’re clearly made of tougher stuff than I. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Guess I have to start reading the fine print! Happy New Year, MIKE!

  • Love the snow pics. None of that for us any time soon. We will have 60s next week! Happy New Year y’all.

  • Happy New Year to you too, Jayne. And that tough stuff you think we’re made of is not unlike the ice cubes in your freezer.

  • Thanks Linda and happy new year to you too. Those temps are a mere 3 months away for us ๐Ÿ™‚

  • That second photo is just brilliant, Mike! And I can’t get over how much Canada looks like Finland. You could be just down the street from here. Happy New Year!
