Snow






As the sun started to set on January 20, the shadows in my front yard grew longer and made interesting designs on the snow. The first photo shows snow that I had piled up while shovelling the driveway. The shadows in the second image are curved because of the shape of the small drift, and a bird made the designs in the snow in the third as it hopped a few times looking for food.

On Friday and Saturday, we had the biggest storm of the year that brought 40 cm (nearly a foot and a half) of powdery snow to the Avalon Peninsula. I went for a short snowshoe hike yesterday and am hoping to go a further today!
