Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

And Yet, More Snow

We had more snow last night. It has been three, or is it four, significant snowfalls in the last couple of weeks. In thirty years I do not remember this much snow this early. It isn't even officially winter yet. I will blame it on the Americans! We only get such snow when warm moist air comes up from the Gulf of Mexico to be greeted by cold Arctic highs. I think I am spoiled because we have a a few winters with not very much snow, (winter drought). Perhaps, this will be the winter the "old timers" talk about with the snow covering the fence posts. Yikes!

I am not only cheap, I am lazy. I only shovel enough to get the car off the road.

There is about a three foot high pile at the side of the road. Soon they will be cutting back the top half with the plow to leave a shelf to allow them to push more snow back when it comes.

I remember the days I would pull my son on skis or a tobbagan with the tractor so he could go up and down off the shelf. Those were the years, Winter was fun.

I am getting tires of having to break a new trail to the shed after every storm.

My shed does not have a hipped roof. This is a snow drift hanging over the edge of the roof.

I think last time I saw such a lot of snow must have been more than 50 years ago !! The last years we only had a few snow flakes which didn't even cover the grass ! It's ages I didn't see a child with a sleigh !
