After the snowfall
If you have visited this blog last winter, you may already have seen me use the term Winterpeg. This is the nickname coined to the city of Winnipeg because of its very cold and long winters. Winters that usually start on October 31 and last up to April. Winters in which temperature of minus 30 C is normal. If you click on Winterpeg under my Categories on the right side of this page, you’ll see some pictures of snow, ice, snow sculptures, more snow, and heaping piles of snow.
As I have mentioned in my previous post, we were dumped with 30 cm of snow on New Year’s eve. It’s a good thing that it was a Sunday when it happened and it was still the Christmas holidays. Otherwise, all that snow would have caused major disruptions in traffic, businesses and schools.
This is our deck and backyard. Look at all that pile of snow and also some on the garage roof.
The husband only managed to shovel a narrow pathway from our front door to the sidewalk.
After lunch, I took a walk around the neighbourhood. It is a great opportunity to take pictures of the snow just after a snowfall like this. The snow is still so clean and white. I started out on this sidewalk and my feet went deep under.
Although some has already been cleared of snow. It was a lot easier to walk here.
And then I came upon this path when I have to go to the other street. I think that was about two feet deep of snow. My socks and the bottom half of my pants were wet by the time I got home.
This is how long that path was. I worked up a sweat just walking that short stretch.
