I have one more set of winter pictures to share. Each of these was taken, around the middle of January.
Steve, Kai and I went out for a Sunday afternoon drive to see what the conditions were out in the country. So come along with me and see a little of what a Manitoba winter is like.
This is a well used road but with the blowing snow it has become more difficult to drive. No I dd not go any further.I really had no desire to get stuck.
Here is another road, also one that normally would be well used. I do think we went down this one. It was open, but likely would not be for very long. Our road maintenance crews have been kept very busy this winter, trying to keep the rural roads passable.
Back on my yard,Kai has a large hill to play on or slide down. I don't remember when we last had such large piles of snow on the yard.
The last three pictures were taken on a different day. It was calm, so no blowing snow and no partially closed roads, just beauty everywhere.
Upon closer inspection some of the snow has been sculpted into lovely shapes.
The force of the wind has carved detailed designs in the snow.
After all that snow, would you join me for a cup of coffee.please?
Do you take it black or-------
would you prefer it with some frothed milk?
Thanks for spending this time with me.I enjoyed your company and look forward to meeting here again.
Until we meet again,rememeber:
