Winter in Monochrome: Jan 2017








As you can see, we finally are getting closer to normal accumulations of snow for this time of year. There are weather announcements of Snowfall. A developing Low pressure system from Wyoming is expected to track across northeastern Ontario Tuesday, with total amounts of 5 to 10 cm anticipated overnight Monday, 15 to 20 cm of snow ( possibly mixed with rain) likely Tuesday.   

Because of the earlier melt and rain, the area in front of our garage has ice thick enough for skating, unfortunately surface is pebbly and sloped – also difficult to stand on when using a snowblower.  The dog, on the other hand,  is having great fun.

    That’s a bit of snow, from one who never gets snow, ever! Doesn’t the dog get frozen feet?

      Yes , we are located in an area of Ontario that normally gets its fair share of snow. Some of our recent winters have been milder, drier and shorter than normal. More like the winters I experienced growing up in the part of Ontario known as the banana belt. 😀

      The dog loves the snow, especially when he gets to play with the other dogs at the dog park – a regular social butterfly. As with most dogs, you have to watch that he doesn’t stay out too long – ice can build up between toes and severe cold could crack paws. His curly fur mats the snow and forms little ice balls. If it is really bad, he gets a a warm wash down when he comes in.
