Snow!



We got hit with two winter storms last week. Friday we received about a foot of snow, so Saturday I had to dig myself out to get to a remote broadcast. Yesterday I helped to dig out 3 other cars in the parking lot. I knew that I wouldn't get for a hike so the exercise was good for me.

The forecast for the rest of the week is for a warming trend and rain. Normally in Halifax we get snow, followed within hours by rain so we rarely get much accumulation. It's strange to see it all there for more than a day.

The picture is of my garden, now completely under snow. All the creepy crawlies should be asleep under there. And you can also make out a bit of my blackberry cane. It's been there a couple of years now, and I'm hoping for berries this coming summer.

I am always reminded of what lies beneath a snowfall...it's as if the snow is a canvas for all the untold stories below. Beautiful picture.

I like that, Linda...a canvas for untold stories below. I know there are ladybugs under there somewhere, a salamander, and a bunch of earthworms.
