For those of you who have wondered just how much snow we have up here in the great white north, here are a few photos. There was so much snow that, even though the snow started on Tuesday evening, the little sidewalk clearing snow blower didn't get to our sidewalk until this morning at about 11:30. I live about 8 blocks from the downtown core. Those poor fellows must have been working a lot of overtime.
Here is our freshly cleared sidewalk.
The snow bank on the little strip of grass between the road and the side walk. In the summer, I can just touch the lowest branch of that tree with my fingertips. Our street is now about 8 feet narrower than it is in the summer.
The driveway with Matt and Kora's van parked at the end along with the path that the kids have plowed so that they can play in the back yard.
Icicles on the house across the street.
And what does one wear in all this ice and snow.
Her newly shrunk socks and a bathing suit of course! She loves the socks because they make her "skate like Ice Princess". Which, of course meant that she had to watch the movie. Oh well. There are worse ways to spend an afternoon.
