Regarding yesterday's post, the church can be glimpsed in the first shot at this post. Click on the image, look at where the river disappears around the bend at the left, and directly above it you should see the golden dome of the shrine. It also gives you a sense of the parallel paths between the river and the canal.
This cold and snow covered marsh in the above photograph is in Guelph in southern Ontario, taken last December. I post this because on Friday we had snow falling for the first time in the day; we might have had some snow in the night here a few days before that. Anyway, I'm always happy to see the first flakes on my coat at this time of year, and I anticipate a long, cold winter with lots of the white stuff.
If I happen to meet a bad end.... well, let's just say at this point the suspect list will be getting pretty long, but it'll include a few people who for some strange reason don't like winter.
Snow, snow, snow, snow!!!!
