Although it’s normal for this subarctic area to receive large snowfalls during November, the most recent one was particularly generous! 55 cm (about 22 inches) fell during a three-day period, filling driveways and road verges and obliterating vision to create a temporarily monochromatic world. Here are some snow covered views.
The snow finally stopped this afternoon and the sun made an appearance, but I understand that we will get more on Friday.

So much snow!! Hopefully you don’t have to go outside anytime soon.
I walk to work every morning – better than trying to drive, although the main roads are all cleared now. Cheers.
Wow! That is certainly impressive, Lynette. Keep warm.
Yes, even for the subarctic this was an impressive snowfall. Thank you! Cheers.
Our snow has stopped as well, for a while and then temps tank. Stay warm Lynette. Happy Tuesday. Allan
Yes, it has dropped for us, as well. The low tonight is supposed to be -20C. It’s going to go up quite a lot later in the week but it will start snowing again, too! You stay warm also.
No lawns to mow.
Hahaha. 😁 Exactly!
Hope you have a big, sturdy shovel.
Oh yes, we have several of different types and sizes! 🙂
I kept saying woah, but it kept snowing anyway. 😉
Love the photo of the trash can, with its topper!
I love that photo, too. It’s such a great snow hat!
You will laugh when you see what Vancouver’s first snowfall amounted to! (I’m about to post…)
Hahaha. 😁 I have already commented on your post; I really would like to have your snowfall instead!
It’s baaack! Oh boy. Bundle up. ❄🎿🏂⛄
Oh yes, it arrived with a bang! Thanks, Lori. I have a fantastic parka that goes to mid-calf and keeps me totally toasty. 🙂
Oh man, I’ve been searching for a heavy coat that goes to the mid-calf and can’t find one. The best I could find was to my knees. I’m super short, so anything long I found went to my ankles, and I looked liked the Stay Puff Marshmallow baby. I’m glad that you found what you need. That is a MUST up there in the great white north.
Actually, my parka was made for me in the traditional Dene way by a local seamstress. She is amazing. She didn’t measure me at all, just looked me over for about 5 seconds and then made a parka that fits absolutely perfectly! I wanted one that would hit mid-thigh so that I don’t have to wear snow pants (I wear lined pants – comfortable and warm). Yes, a good parka is a necessity for sure. I didn’t know what the Marshmallow baby is, so I looked him up – I’m sure you don’t look like that!
That is so cool that you had a parka custom made. It was smart of you, too, considering where you work. BTW, it’s really the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man, but I rephrased it because I’m so short. LOL My husband took a picture of me when I tried on those long coats. Umm, yeah, marshmallow. 😛
Yes, it’s such a beautiful coat. Once I move home permanently, I’m not sure what I will do with it as it will be much too heavy for the weather in the Okanagan. It also has fur on the hood (very traditional and acceptable among the Dene but not further south), so perhaps I’ll give it to someone here before I leave.
It’s interesting that when I visualise you from your photo, you’re tall. So for me, you have a tall presence. 🙂
Thanks, Lynette. Tall presence like a chihuahua. Hehe. That would be nice of you to give the coat to someone up there.
Thanks, Lori. 🙂
