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…
This is my jeep, its taller than me, so close to 6′ tall… see the snow bank above it!
This is looking down the road in front of my Jeep, see that 80km sign, they are a good height!
This photo was taken from the first big storm of the year on January 6th, this is our main street in Mount Forest.
The snow banks got bigger, this was Jan 7th as the snow continues!
The snow built up outside my front door, it was over 4′ high ! This was from Jan 25th…
Accumulated snow on part of our deck, freshly covering our chairs and table!
January 26th… in one month this is how much snow that was plowed from just part of our driveway (we also have a lot piled at the front!)
Another of the snow pile, the kids LOVE it!
January 30th, my kids in front of the snow bank in front of our house… it’s bigger now.
January 30th snow bank with the Jeep…
January 31st main street Holstein, see a road sign is almost entirely covered!
February 2nd, hubby having a little fun with the Jeep on one of the snow piles at the front of the house!
Took a drive up to the cottage.
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!!!
