|Bee In Common Burdock|
After many complaints from me about the lack of snow we had a blizzard sweep in this week from Ohio. So be careful what you wish for. The photos show how the sky changed over a very short period. The temperatures with wind chill were about -22 C degrees and about 15-20 cm. of snow fell, but the real clincher was the drifting snow. We dug out continually, and finally managed to make it to the woods today.
The last photo is just a summer reminder. Remember Dec. 21st is equinox-equal day and equal night. But by the next day, the day is longer and the progression begins towards noticeably longer days. How's that for being an optimist? Boom & Gary of The Vermilon River.

I await impatiently for hte longer daylight!ReplyDelete
And I will not wish for snow, as you say ...
VioletSky: The snow is alright, but not all at once with such incredible winds. Boom & Gary.ReplyDelete
Nice series and reminder of how quickly the sky can change. Hope you are done shoveling out for a while.ReplyDelete
Stay warm and have a great weekend.
PS - Great picture of your dog in your header shot.
To Sally: Boomer always grabs the limelight. You can read his story in earlier posts. Thanks for the visit.ReplyDelete
Pretty dramatic sky! I am glad to hear though that you both dug yourselves out. I love the color of the burdock with the bee. We all need some cheering.ReplyDelete
I am looking forward to longer daylight especially if we have a bit of sunlight to go with it. Where I am, we've had overcast skies most days with snow squalls coming off Lake Huron.ReplyDelete
It is amazing how quickly the sky can change!
Pretty skies. I'm ready for a big snowstorm.ReplyDelete
Yes, the sun will soon be headed back but still, many cold, stormy days lie ahead.ReplyDelete
I've been hearing about all your snow. We (here in southern New Mexico) seem to be in the only place with calm, warmish weather. I'm thankful for each day, no matter the temperature!ReplyDelete
Sweet photos!!! Hugs to you and Boomer!ReplyDelete
I couldn't decide where the Vermilion River is, but you are near Sudbury right?ReplyDelete
Ds was up in your neck of the words (well sort of) in New Liskeard doing an audit a couple of weeks ago for the North Bay office.
Can't believe you haven't had much snow up to now.
Haha, it's like from extreme to extreme situation. Great series of sky photos.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend.
To Y. Ikeda: You sure saw the irony in the post.Thanks for the visit.ReplyDelete
To Gill: Near but not part of the Valley of Death.The Vermilon River is an independent great little country that Boom & I inhabit.ReplyDelete
Hi Jean: Boom always has hugs for you. Boom & Gary.ReplyDelete
Hi Clariz: The change of seasons although we complain enriches this forest that Boom & I live in. Thanks for the visit.ReplyDelete
Martha Z: Boom and I just came back from our forest walk. No camera, the snow is too deep in the drifts. But I'll go back later as the bright white of the snow, the somber gray skies, and the deep green of the coniferous trees is worth the inconvience of the cold. You're active; a little more snow and it will be time for snowshoes. Boom & Gary.ReplyDelete
To Al: I sure wasn't, but now it's here, it's great. Thanks for the visit.ReplyDelete
To EG Wow: The Vermilon by another name is a tributary of Lake Huron. I was born and raised on the shores of Lake Ont. Few people realize how heavy lake snow squalls can be. Thanks for the visit.ReplyDelete
Hi Hilke: I liked the irony of the burdock with the bee growing in the hot sun with a major blizzard coming.ReplyDelete
