Winter At Its Prettiest

We live in an area called the Ottawa Valley in Ontario, Canada.  The people who have lived here a long time say the weather has changed over the years.  Winters here used were once marked by lots of fluffy white snow that came and stayed.  Nowadays we are just as likely to get freezing rain mixed with snow or temperatures that see the snow partially melt and then, with city traffic, the snow is soon dirty and slushy.  

The longer term forecast for our region for January and February 2013 is for a colder, snowier than usual winter.  Since cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are favourites of mine, I say bring it on!  Here’s some of the beauty of a trail about 10 minutes from home.

What do you choose to do in winter (wherever that may be) to make the best of colder temperatures?

  1. What do I do? Try to stay home and in my yard as much as possible while I ponder , “How did Barb put falling snowflakes in her blog pictures?”

    • Gee, I think you commented before I published! You must be clairvoyant.

      The snowflakes, I’d like to say I am technologically adept and then reel off many IT terms but the plain truth is that WordPress sends out various things about blogging and enhancements and adding snowflakes during December was one of those things. It was easy-peasy. Otherwise it would not have happened.
