In southern Manitoba,we expect snow and wind in winter,and we are usually not disappointed.
This winter has had a variety of weather,some snow,some wind,some bitter cold and lots of mild days as well.
The fury of winter came on January 8th.We had some snow and then of course the wind.The snow was quickly blown into drifts. I must add that this has thus far been the only storm of the winter,so that is pretty good,BUT,winter is not over yet.
On my yard,the snow drifts form right across my driveway.This one was big enough that I didn't feel comfortable tackling it with my car,even if it is a four-wheel drive.
This photo gives a better perspective of the drift across the driveway at the west end of my house.I had to get someone to pick me up and take me to my bus so I could take care of my route for the afternoon.By early next morning my snow clearing guy had opened it up really well.
Yes,we have storms,but we also get to see the beautiful side of winter.On a recent drive out of town,I came upon this scene in the roadside ditch.I thought it was a stunning scene.
I zoomed in on the snowbank and noticed all the ripples and texture in the snow.
A wider angle view,once again changed the look of the scene.I love those blue shadows on the snow.
I have not had many chances to get photos of a Snowy Owl this year,but this lady was very cooperative.Can she turn that head any further around?
I moved forward with the car and she turned around and gave me this beautiful pose.What a magnificent bird!
I look at a bird like this and I see a beautiful creation,made by God.
The quote I share today is one I need to remember.
NEXT TIME YOU VIEW YOURSELF IN A MIRROR,
VIEW YOURSELF AS GOD SEES YOU ———
A SPECIAL CREATION,MADE IN HIS IMAGE.
