A Winter's Day - February 17, 2007

The Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland and Labrador is being battered by a blizzard that started yesterday around 1:30 PM. Schools are closed all day because of the 30 cm of snow and high winds that have fallen in less than 24 hours. High winds are blowing the snow around causing white-outs and drifting.

On Saturday, I drove to the Witless Bay Line, not far from my house in Holyrood, to photograph "Winter". In some places it was clear, but the road was drifting in, especially when I came upon a heavy snow squall. The photos this morning show a few scenes I captured during the short trip.

I'll make another photo trip there as soon as possible - I am sure the drifts will be huge up there after today's storm!

Wow!!! We're melting after the snow we got here in Calgary! I have bulbs poking their heads up in my flowerbed as well as the day lilies!!
