We have been experiencing a blast of weather lately. Four days of blizzard conditions. The top photos show what I saw as I looked out an upstairs bedroom window yesterday; the bottom are taken today. This is life in the North. You've gotta love it. The bad side is that folks run out of water as it is delivered to our houses. Also, our septic tanks don't get pumped out and the fuel truck does not make its rounds. Hope you enjoy this.

Good one! I had a request to photograph a blizzard and thought only by comparison frames, could you really convey the experience to those unfamiliar with the usual scenery.
I have to tell you that you have maybe only about a third as much snow as us though! I was out walking last Friday, in some different places, and thought to myself, 'hmm, I don't remember being taller than the stop signs before'. There is a snowdrift 10' deep behind my office door, we have to keep shovelling out the stairwell and it is starting to look a lot like a tunnel! I saw kids playing in the parking lot of the 'Igloo Cathedral' last Sunday and the snow that was ploughed there was at least 4 times the height of the children playing on it. Kids are having the time of their lives with all this white stuff!

Vera, it is definetly a very different lifestyle from us Canadians down south. You and Maura are strong ladies doing a fine job up north. Bravo... my hat off for both of you. What a winter...if we complain down in southen Ontario over a few inches of snow...all we have to do is really look at you guys up there. We have water, and heat anytime of the day, plus many more things you probably do not see for months. Keep up the good work.
