Day 16


You guessed it. Yep. We got a little more snow yesterday. Gabriola has now been white for 16 days straight. For most of Canada, that's the December norm but from what I understand, it's unprecedented for Gabe. We hiked to the village for groceries and then caught a ride home with an intrepid friend. Actually, the streets weren't bad at all but our truck is still at the end of the driveway, it's path to the pavement blocked by the snowbank the plows left behind. I guess I'll get out there with the shovel and liberate us this afternoon.

Nice graphic image of the trek. Shoveling snow ain't no job for a Tennessee boy!

Well we got snow like you too. 16 days and almost every morning I would wake up to it snowing AGAIN. But not today--it is raining--not hard but it isn't snow and now that it is warmer mayb just maybe the white stuff will melt and I can see green again. Whew!! MB

I am a complete stranger to snow, Snapper. What am I looking at here? Could it be the tread of the snow plough? What are the tiny black blobs?

Artful monochrome. Great job. I've had my fair share of snow over the past week.

What a good image. I immediately thought of the rings of Saturn.

Snapper, I am so in love with this image! I have been staring at it for the last 5 minutes... I just love it!
