Morning After......


Heard the snow plows all night long clearing the roads. Even heard my brother Laurie with his plow 'doing' our driveway at about midnight (he had said that he would be by).




Looked out the window this morning and everything was white and puffy....no, not my face!!!




Schools have been cancelled again in the province.....two days in a row. Oh, that little 'rush' of excitement for the kids and teachers.




This is a very typical February for us here in Nova Scotia. We will probably have snow around till late March. Makes for some great light and shadows.

  1. Beautiful pictures!
    My kids finally went back to school today. Fred and I have never been so happy.

  2. It does look beautiful! Too bad it's so cold! We won't get above freezing until Saturday, so no melting for us for a while. Our winters are typically dry, very little moisture that comes in the form of ice or an inch or two of snow. (No snow plows here!) By March, the days are blustery and wetter, but no snow, unless Mother Nature throws us a freak snow over Spring break. I'm not sure how well I could adjust to a clime where snow stays on the ground for very long. Stay warm, Jim, Ron and Sophie!

  3. Liz, I love the cold....so fresh and invigorating. Give me cold any day over humidity....guess it's in my Nova Scotian genes!

    Mark, oh! That was your 'sigh of relief' we heard early this morning!!! lol

  5. Great pictures... I'm glad you all are enjoying your winter. I'll admit, winter is not one of my favorite times of year (it's my least favorite) but I do like one big-gigantic-beautiful snow before seasons end. So far, nothing much. Okay, now get Sophie outside so she can run her nose through the white stuff!! If you're still here... then you are probably a rotten egg.

  6. I just kinda' cringe when friends or fellow bloggers from the east coast of the U.S. or the west coast or the south say they are looking forward to spring in about a month. Here in Colorado, March is our snowiest month by far. So I am looking forward to spring in about three months.

    Wonderful pictures. Thanks for posting them.

  7. Blessed are those who share their snowplows.

    I happen to love winter, but I don't say that too loudly or I fear I will be pig-piled by all the winter-haters around here. I love the long evenings and the time spent in closer proximity to each other -- it seems, in summer, everyone scatters again after supper, not in winter. I love the enhanced appreciation for the warm shelter that is our house, piles of blankets on the bed, etc.

    Your pictures are beautiful, as usual.

  9. I will say one thing - it's pretty to look at (in the pictures) but I wouldn't want to go there! Snow is not my thing, I do know a lot of people love it! Have fun playing in the snow with Sophie!

  10. Just beautiful, Jim. I am "white" with envy over all the lovely snow that you got from the storm. But, winter isn't over yet, so who knows what fun lies ahead?

  11. Good gracious! I love the pictures, but I can't imagine what it's like to live in that!

    Stay warm and safe!

  12. I would love to wake up to this beautiful view! Our snow looks like yucky brown mush by now, nothing like the serene pictures you took!

  13. I have to admit that I really do love the snow--While this last storm missed us, with the amounts that fell, I don't know whether to be relieved or jealous...Actually I think I'm a little of both! Enjoy your day Jim!!

  14. Like you say teachers love a 'snow day' just as much as the children!
    Lovely photos in this post.
    love

  15. Don't you just love snow?! (superb pics by the way). But I thought you Canadians were pretty good at dealing with it and didn't need to shut schools etc? When it snows in the UK, everyone turns into a big girls blouse and panics, so the whole country grinds to a halt!

  16. I'm going to stop reading your blog! Your superb photography makes me feel so inadequate! Lovely images, well done - I like the 'little tree' and 'Sophie'.

  18. Sophie's facial expression just cracked me up! That snow looks so peaceful and beautiful. Looks like you guys like ploughing around in the snow! To be doing that around midnight! My word.Just to say that I did see your previous post about the young man,his funeral and his horse,it had me in tears,and the fact that his dog just keeled over and died too!Very sad.....

  21. It's about this time every year I get irritated that Canada never colonized a tropical island nation. I thought Nova Scotia got rain more than snow. Obviously not.

  22. She is so pretty! Is that a dusting of snow on her nose, "powdering her nose," as they used to say? The photos are refreshing, clear and invigorating to look at...perhaps it's because we don't have snow here. Thank you for transporting me to Nova Scotia.
