White Mountain

The neighbourhood children like to play on this kid-sized snow mountain that has been pushed there by the snow ploughs.

A helpful trail, carved through the drifts by a snowblower operator, allows them to easily reach it. The problem is that it has really been too cold for them to enjoy it. Today was -33C (-27F) with a windchill of -39C (-38F). Much too chilly for little cheeks, fingers and toes.

Happy Thursday. Stay warm. 🙂

Snow Drifts Part IV

The snow collection on my stair railings has continued to grow.

February 10

We got an additional dump a few days ago and while the collection suffered some damage during the snow clearance process, they are still more or less intact. The drifts are starting to tilt and lean though, and it’s getting harder to avoid bumping them when shovelling the steps, especially when dressed in so many layers that you can hardly move.

We shall see how much longer they can hold out, especially the pile that’s in the railing corner.

Happy Tuesday. 🙂
