Want snow?

We have it! These, two pictures were taken with almost a month and a half in between. The levels certainly haven’t gone down, rather the opposite.

Here are two more. They were all shot with the iPhone. It still looks nice and clean in places outside the city, but all this is getting to feel old now πŸ™‚

  1. Oh that poor boat!! Hope it was properly winterized. My son told me a few minutes ago he now has an online friend in your town. I told him where St. John is. This winter has been so very difficult for the northern latitudes, so much for that global warming nonsense.

    1. Oh, they’re winterized alright … this was at the marina.

      There’s Saint John, New Brunswick and St. John’s, Newfoundland … but you already knew that πŸ™‚

      1. Actually it’s global climate change and is characterised by abrupt and abnormal weather patterns: like the extreme temperatures & ongoing drought in Texas, California and Australia. The tsunamis that hit Penang, Malaysia and Fukushima, Japan. Hurricane Andrew that overwhelmed New Orleans and Sandy in New Jersey. Pretty sure this winter on the east coast also fits the definition.
        As to the “warming” part, just look to the Canadian Arctic: Animals, birds and insects showing up that the Inuit don’t have names for in their native language, Inuktitut. Receding glaciers. Sea ice which is freezing later, thawing earlier and thinning in places which have historically remained frozen year-round…
        This year, when Summer finally rolls around, turn off your air conditioners and go outside for a while. Pay attention to what’s going on outside. Is this truly what you remember about the way weather was when you were a child?

        1. Oh wow. When I wrote that sentence above, I was thinking β€œthis is something that I really can’t take part in … the debate about global climate change” … and I won’t start now. I haven’t read up on it properly. All of what you say feels right, though.

  2. Wow!!! LOve it! I live vicariously through you!!! We had a dribble of rain tonite. Not enough to do any good.

    1. Too bad that you guys didn’t get any real Winter. I would have loved for ours to arrive earlier though. All this came down only in late January. Before that we had none.

  3. Wow! Love the photos! Especially the 3rd one! Just love the “wrinkles” if you know what I mean, the shape and the light and everything, but all photos are great!

    I’m just glad that we do not have that snow though πŸ˜› The little snow we got the other day is already gone and it is a sunny day!

    1. I liked those β€œwrinkles” too … and the colours. Sometimes I almost get surprised how well they come out, even though it’s β€œjust a phone”.

  4. It’s beautiful to look at for me. Especially since I am sitting in weather warm enough to wear a bathing suit out and suntan some today.

    1. I think so too, that particular snow looked beautiful. Our time will come … I think the big melt will start now… today it’s been 3 degrees above!

  5. Wow that’s so amazing! Especially as compared to things here in the desert where it’s practically summer already (such things always amaze me even when I know it’s always opposite weather somewhere). It does seem like things have been particularly relentless up in the northeast this year. The photos are great though – very bright and clean πŸ™‚ I think the boat photo really sums up just how snowy it must be there!

    1. Yes, most winters we hardly get any snow at all. Maritime Canada … well, the whole eastern seaboard has turned into one big snow bank this time.
