“There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.” William Sharp ((pseud. Fiona MacLeod), 1855-1905)
I woke up this morning to a winter wonderland…much to my dismay.. the wet/soft packy snow had froze with a lot of powder on top of it.. so no snowmen for me! After shovelling a bit, and clearing off the cars…I took a walk and got some photos!
I’m having a fabulous time with my mum here in Haliburton…filled with PJ days, movies and good food (although I think I have reached my turkey quota for 2011–good thing New Years is around the corner!)
I have plans to do a bit more travelling before my vacation is over… going to a wedding, meeting some friend’s new babies, catching up with friends in the Toronto area…this involves a bit more travelling, let’s hope the roads stay in good condition…but we all know how I like to stay on-the-road!
…snow, snow and more snow! A few photos because my friend Sarah H. commented on Facebook that she wouldn’t believe it was snowing until I posted the proof. Because I still wasn’t feeling well I stuck close to my house, and snapped these photos… Normally you see the Pang Pass in this direction, today it was a wall of white–snow! You can barely make out Mt. Duval in this photo… I know the morning flights were cancelled…but think I heard a plane tonight (dont’ know if it landed though!) I’m not sure if this snow will be here to stay… or if it will be gone… a quick look at the weather forecast says it looks like it will be 5C tomorrow, so probably will be gone! Morena and her boys went out to build some snowmen earlier today before it got REALLY wet out… looks like they had a lot of fun…you can see her photos HERE!
They are pretty weird photos… just snow piles around the parking lot at work.But they have a bit more meaning to me than that! But early last week every morning and night as I walked past these snow piles… my mind slipped back into the past…and memories of recess at my public school…
