This is what WINTER is in a small town! | Mount Forest

This past Friday a bunch of family met up in Toronto to go to the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. There is NO snow anywhere IN the city. Our aunt and uncle have a ground cover in their backyard, however the streets, nothing, downtown at the Aquarium NOT a flake! My uncle was joking that he hasn’t been up all winter… lucky him he’s coming next weekend!

I did however have to snap a few shots after the misses hockey tourney yesterday on our way home, we took the back way.

Toronto, this is what WINTER is like in a small town… These first 3 pics are from Saturday!

This is a snow bank on the side of highway 6…

The snow bank in front of the house is the perfect height for the kids to climb up into the tree.

The snowmobiler’s are very happy this winter! Its SO nice to see a winter like we had when I was growing up, yes I totally feel like my grama or even my parents saying that. Its so nice to have SNOW and not just for a couple weeks. This cold weather however… can take a hike! By the end of this month, I am ready for Spring to arrive!!!
