We relished our snow day yesterday

We woke up to a good snowfall and it continued to fall until late afternoon.

I love seeing snow on tree boughs.

We waited until noon to shovel, yes I went out and did it as well. We were forecast to get 12cm/4.75inches. It did look close to four inches.  It was fun to come in with wet hair and mitts.

A lovely winter look to this weeping willow.

The Jeep has a deep well where the windshield wipers rest and it is a royal pain to clean out when frozen so Colin put some towels down the night prior.  It worked very well. Yesterday this was covered in snow.

A home just down the street from us had shingle damage from that horrid wind storm. It was cold and miserable on Wednesday but the two roofers worked non stop and very fast. They were the same company that did our roof repairs. This roof was about 20 years old so the owners decided to have it totally replaced.

We were surprised to see them up on the roof first thing yesterday in the middle of the snow storm. They did get the job completed.

Today we had to drive from Kelowna to Vernon. About 50 km/31 miles and the scenery was outstanding. Don’t forget we were driving at 90/kph or56/mph. I quite liked this reflection into Woods Lake.

Snow and more snow.

We just caught these huge icicles out of the corner of our eyes. A quick snapshot.  They actually went on for about a mile. So fun to see but best to simply enjoy rather than try and take photos.

It was another chiropractic appointment for both of us and of course Colin was in trouble for so much high up reaching and tilting his head back. Needless to say all the stress this week had me twisted. We really should just come home after a treatment but because we were already out, why not go grocery shopping? We did do one curbside pick up.  But we just hated waiting in the car for so long but it did avoid going into another store. We are always so happy to get home.

While we were out I received this message on my iPhone and once home it was also on my iMac. Why the heck? So I called Apple who suggested  a few things that made no sense. Then my computer guru settled me down.  I think Mr Murphy is out there just waiting to bug me.

I was going for this great wolf moon shot but the clouds came in. Rather artsy I think.

So much news today here in Canada with al the changes for non essential air travel. I think it is a great idea. There are hints that something will also be done for those driving in. If you missed the news just Google it.  I can tell you that many in Mexico are not too happy.

Tomorrow I will address baked veggies and movies.

    I completely agree with stopping the flights – if people are too stupid to stay home then it has to be mandated. One of my best friend’s brother (whom she is super fed up with) was supposed to fly out to Mexico this weekend for a holiday – idiot. Obviously, if everyone just followed the bloody rules we would be out of this faster. I can’t believe how much snow and cold you’ve gotten this winter. We just got a couple inches with rain so it melted fast. It is rainy and grey today but that is to be expected.

      Well they did tell us that this was to be a cold winter with lots of snow. Those who winter here tell us that this has been a very very mild winter. I guess it’s all at how you look at it. As to people traveling during Covid, they deserve what is now happening. Trudeau has been warning everyone to stay home for almost a year now.

  2. Nice scenic pictures.
    I’ve done both the shoveling and roofing for myself at this time of year and glad it’s over.
    Nice to be able to just get out once in a while.
    I think we have a couple of those travel tickets as well.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the isolation.

    It’s about time.

      Well we can’t complain as it is our first time shovelling and having roof issues in twenty years. You deserve a break but I’m sure you would be happier out in the Arizona desert if it weren’t for Covid.

      I really like it. Just one of those accidents photos, as I could not get the camera to focus before the clouds moved in.
