I thought you might like to see our Canadian  snow(not like this every winter)and I live in the deep south (of Canada).

Looks wonderful bob, didn't stop santa arriving

Brrrrrr

Nice to look at, but makes getting on with ordinary life a bit of a pain here.  I guess in Canada you are much more geared up for it.  How does your garden cope under a blanket of snow?

Oooops! Sorry I mean Bill

Star gaze lily My best friend for 70 years who just passed was Bob,everyone called him Bill and me Bob so thanks for the memories.I made the santa and raindeer for my house but my Son took it to his place,he has terminal lung cancer.

Chicky its all I've ever known and when we get a rain then it freezes than snows we have to be so careful walking,the ice under the snow is deadly. as for the snow and plants,if it wasnt for the snow we would lose most of our perennials as its like a blanket.

The older I get harder it is to take,but I'm happy I'm still looking down at it not up.

Hi Bill, snow always seemed that deep when I was a girl, but I was only 2'6" tall. I do remember my Dad digging a path out of the house and the snow at each side was higher than me, but as I said I was tiny.

This is what we got in Yorkshire last Winter

KEF thats a nice snow cover you have,what I used to hate was I was wearing snow boots to just below the knee and the snow was still deep enough for it to get into the top of the boots and so exhausting to try and walk through it,I dont mean now even 50 60 years ago it was a hard walk.

THanks for your kind thoughs in regards to my Son,its melanoma and it was discovered Sept 13/2012.He will be 52 Nov 20.

Fab fab pics bill.... I'm part polar beat so would live love love snow like that

Living in the south of England we can go years without seeing any meaningful amounts of snow, and when it does snow, blink, and it's gone! 

29/10/2013 at 22:28

the uk is awful when it snows. We come to a stand still. The trains stop running now if there are leaves on the track.  

29/10/2013 at 22:53

Where abouts in the south are you ww? Didn't you get any snow last winter?

30/10/2013 at 09:16

I live in the New Forest. Am retired so when it snows I can stand and stare at it and leave the car in the garage!   And I have always got a freezer full of food and the village shop is 100 yds. away too. Not much snow as far as I can remember. Some years ago there was a run of several years without any at all.
