Freaking Freezing Friday


As much as I really like winter and all that it offers,
I have to admit that some days are WAY too cold
to leave the warm confines of home or car.


Yesterday afternoon was one of those days......I remained in the car as Ron and Sophie
ventured out into the howling wind at MacDonald Hill.


From inside the cozy car I could still take advantage of the views in front of me
as the clouds separated for a moment or two.


If you squint you may see the distant container ship (just left of centre)
approaching Halifax Harbour
and also a helicopter's blades being reflected by the sun as it heads back home
to Shearwater Forces Base in Dartmouth.

  1. This is like when the property valuers come to your house and do a " Driveway valuation", not getting out of their car. Wise man, let Ron and Sophie sample the air and sea breeze, super photos, love those grey shades. Here on TVNZ, we have heard of the next really cold snap coming your way. Greetings to all, Jean.

  12. Do you remember those teasingly warm days you had? Payback time! (How'd the pulse monitoring go?)

    1. Oh yes I do Barb! lol
      My results from the heart monitoring will take a while as they have to be read in Halifax first by specialists then returned to Dartmouth where my cardiologist is centered. She said probably 6 to 8 weeks....so not a rush obviously!!
