Ontario's snow


Hi in Ontario to all you with sore backs and arms from lifting all that snow!

You know there are times, I get terribly homesick for good old home, but this weekend is certainly not one of them!!

I'm sending a few photo's Roxanne sent me from St. Catharines and one from my neighbour from where I lived in Belleville.

This is day one of the storm, at my sister Roxanne's in St. Catharines.

Well, Roxie, got one side cleaned out!

Ohhhh Man, I bet her back is aching now!!! But I think I see tracks of a snowblower, so she must of had help!

Yup! there's the crew!!

Ya gotta love those neighbours with snowblowers eh!

Day 2 of the storm and all that hard work, filled in AGAIN!

AWWWWW DAMN!!! Not again!

There is something about a snowstorm that many people here in BC don't understand, is the fun of a storm and all the neighbours getting out at the same time and working together as a team to get the job done. Everyone works together and nobody stops until everyone's driveway is cleared. It's really quite fun!!! Exhausting and a challenge to get it all done!!

53 Centimeters later! Cat doesn't think much of this!

Now over to Belleville, 3 hours East, along the 401 Corridor, where this is a shot from my neighbours window before the second storm hit!

There is a road out there someplace in the middle. Those snowbanks are getting higher and higher!

Well, that's it for today! No picture of the day or a poem on the delight of snow or how Spring has hit BC. I don't want to get myself killed. I hear another storm is on the way as well.

Happy Shovelling Everyone!!!

Note: Martin (Tom's son) mowed the lawn here today!!

  1. Hi,
    You're right...even though it's a's envigorating and fun to get outside with everyone pitching in to clear away the snow.(Just as long as it's every once in a while!!) I have GREAT neighbours!
    Loved the last comment about Martin mowing the grass there today...soon...soon we'll be doing that. I have to think POSITIVE!

    ps. Hope Tom's cold is getting better!
