Snow: What a Big Surprise!

    Today we received about 15 - 20 cm ( 5 in.) of snow. Light fluffy snow started falling early this morning. Snow had been forecast but it was to be very little. We missed the nasty stuff that went through Saskatchewan, Manitoba and God knows where else. Saskatchewan and Manitoba had some very nasty weather with high winds. Roads were closed. Large snow drifts were formed. Cars were abandoned on streets and roads.

    This was just a very quiet and gentle fall of snow. It was pleasant. Even the shoveling was easy.
When life gives you!
This stump with the roof gives a measure of the snow.
The yard light is loaded with snow. I wish I could say the snow bent the lamp but it didn't.
My two meter birch tree is well protected with snow.
