Wintery Landscapes :: Extremes of Weather!
What a weekend of interesting weather! We have experienced one extreme to the other. I have been told, on more than one occasion, that Canadians love to talk about the weather. I tend to agree. I think the reason is that our weather is never the same, from one day to the next! This past weekend was a classic example. The winter storm on Friday seemed to live up the hype with record-setting snowfall in many places. Here in our lovely town of Fergus, Ontario it is reported that we received about 34 cm, and yes, my back and arms felt every shovel-full!
Since the buses were cancelled and schools were closed, it became an unexpected family day with lots of fun and games inside and out.
The weekend, by contrast, was full of sunshine with no wind as we enjoyed many wintery activities with friends and their children. Great times, fabulous food and lots of fun was had by all!
Sunday morning dawned bright and sparkly as the dazzling sunshine and warmer temperatures quickly melted the frost from the garden.
As I write this, rain has started and although it has become a freezing rain, it seems to be taking a lot of the snow with it. Our weekend has experienced one extreme of wacky weather to the other…from snow, to sunshine to freezing rain. What will this week bring?
