Snow Day

Yesterday Barry was pruning the fruit trees as he leaves to go back to work in Alberta next week.  It started snowing in the late afternoon and continued all night.

By morning the yard looked like this.


No pruning today!   

The temperature was hovering around 0°C so it did melt some. 

Look at the snow hanging in the grape arbor.

Everything was weighted down from the moisture-heavy snow.

No ground was left uncovered, so poor Lulu won't be able to go out.  There had been some bare patches under the trees so she would go out on sunny days.  No chance of that for a fair while.


  1. How beautiful! We might be due some snow in the UK this weekend. It doesn't visit very often, so I shall enjoy it...not sure about my gals tho! x

    1. We were lucky not to be on the road. There were storm warnings and road closures all over western Canada. Brr!

  2. I was hoping for a bit here in Sidney. No such luck. Sorry Lulu can't get out though, poor thing,

    1. After the snow we got rain, so now we have slippery sidewalks and driveways. Yuk!
