Still Snowing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is just an update..

It's Noon - we are supposed to get at least another 6" of snow today.

I just took this picture a few minutes ago in my backyard - this is in INCHES! This has fallen since 5 am this morning - 16".

It is snowing harder than ever. You can see the birdfeeder on the right hand side - there's at least a foot of snow on the roof. Most of it slid off because the roof is plexiglas.
The plows are not out, so I guess I get the day off of work. Ah - to live in the Great White North.

By the way - this is a localized snow squall - it is about 20 miles wide x about 40 miles long.
Everywhere else - the sun is shining - and they aren't getting ANY snow at all.

The good thing about this - it's fluffy - so it will probably compact down to about 10" in the next few days. And the ground isn't frozen yet - so it will probably melt within the week - famous last words.

Oh - and my sheep - they're all safe and sound inside the barn today. However - my ducks are out in that pond somewhere - refusing to come inside.

I'll try to post some pictures later - after the snow stops.

Oh, I love snow so much. That amazing silence that you wake to on a snowy morning and the whispering of the flakes drifting down. You probably get sick of it over there!

My other half is asking where in Ontario you are. His ex was from your part of the world so he spent lots of time there.

We're just outside of Sarnia, which is about an hour west of London, Ontario - right near the Michigan/Ontario border.

I also love snow Jenny - we do get a bit sick of it when it sticks around
more than 6 months.
