But I have to be honest. Year after year, the snow that collects where I live tends to blow me away a little.
About a week ago, a friend of mine from England posted a picture of a snowfall they had, which made national news there. And I know that England is not used to having snow, so for them it was a big deal. But to me, it looked like someone had sifted a bit of icing sugar over their trees and cars.
This was especially the case since the picture came just after Newfoundland had a two day long snowstorm resulting in somewhere around 90 cms of snow.
To give you an idea of what we had, here are some pictures:
|The first night|
|My back porch, still the first night.|
|The same porch, before bed a couple of hours later.|
|When the storm had passed.|
And that's just the beginning of our season.
Last year, our last snowfall was the first week of June. By the time the last snowfall comes, I won't be able to see out of my living room window.
|Because the snow plow will keep building that pile.|
|We haven't had substantial snowfalls in days!|
