Snowy Day

I took these on a particularly wintery day in February, while Winterlude was going on, in streets around Old Ottawa South, the Glebe, and Centretown, including views of the Canal from the Bronson Bridge. The snow pack has gone down since then, as you've seen in shots from my St. Patrick's series, but it's been consistently cold in March thus far. And we got a bunch of it back thanks to that storm earlier this week.

  7. @Tom: spring still seems elusive! It's below freezing today, but sunny.

    @Marleen: our city's annual snow removal budget went over its line some time ago, so we've had quite a snowy winter.

    @Marianne: this year it seems to be that way.

    @Klara: we can count on snowfalls into April here. In recorded weather history here, we have had trace amounts of snow in every month but July, I believe.

    @Cloudia: thanks!

    @Grace: I love it.

    @Red: we get a good amount.

  11. I absolutely love this series of photos, William, and I love winter and snow, as you know! I keep staring at the snow and scenes in these photos! And I love the lights in them, too! Brilliant series, dear friend.

  14. Those snow scenes bring back memories of my childhood in North Dakota. I am now very content to put up with the summer heat just to live in Arizona.

  15. @Jennifer: it can make for challenging walking!

    @Lowell: it is still below freezing here, but it's been sunny and clear all day.

    @Beth: I love the snow. It does tend to stick around here.

    @Linda: thanks!

    @Sharon: it can be trouble for some cars- and buses. Articulated buses here can have problems in heavy snow.

    @RedPat: I am!

    @Catalyst: it's heat that gets to me. Give me the cold anytime.

  17. That really looks like a heap of snow. You are cold and we are weathering a late burst of summer when it should be autumn.

  19. That's a lot of snow. I enjoy looking at it and even walking in it but I always hated to drive in it. I like your winter photos and glad you like the cold season and share your findings with everyone.

  24. This puts our little bits of snow to shame. It certainly is a good thing you like winter because you've gotten a very good dose of it.

  25. You really had a lots of snow there. But fortunately, the snow has melted, or is it.
