We have experienced a major storm over the past day and a half — almost a record 40+cm (getting near 1.5ft). It was still falling lightly this morning, but I decided to try for a few photos. I bundled up, and at a windchill of -15°C/5°F, I wasn't cold. However, the wind was blowing fiercely and driving the snow into my eyes, so I turned back pretty quickly.
It was still pretty dark and bleak, and that is reflected in the pictures.
|Neighbour was already out shovelling her driveway and her neighbour's (double shared drive).|
|Snow hung on the branches, but I didn't go far enough to get good pictures.|
|This is one reason why I don't want a dog — the necessity of walking the critter at all hours in all weather.|
|The road is snow-covered and quite icy also.|
The storm resulted in the third cancellation of school buses in two weeks yesterday, so we've had much time with Daniloohoo lately. The kids is a force of nature, so it may take us awhile to recover.
I wanted to take some pictures of out tv corner with Christmas books and the faux fireplace crackling, but someone soon inserted herself into the action.
|I was using a tripod and a slow shutter speed, so this became a unique photo.|
|Interesting distortion from a wide angle lens. I could correct this in post, but I like it as it is.|
I like it as it is, too.
That snowstorm kept our daughter from coming home today. She is coming tomorrow instead. We got a light dusting, like icing sugar on the top of a donut. I like the double exposure picture.
Lucky you, to get snow before Christmas. And, yes, I do like snow.
We got power back about 4:00 pm after two days in the dark. I have never appreciated light and hot water more.
We had so much wet, heavy snow that a lot of pines broke and one or more must have fallen on the lines down our road. The Hydro guys had to come in with a snow machine and buck through a lot of bent trees to find the break. They sure are wonderful people - what a job!
I love it when people post photographs of snow; I can enjoy it vicariously without the drudgery of cleaning up after it. ;)
Danica in motion; classic.
