morning sparkle



   We are, rather hubby is, cleaning up after the storm of yesterday.

The view from the window with glittery ice on the trees. You could even see the distant
hills sparkle in the morning sunrise.


              We received about 10 cm. (4 inches) of snow, followed
              by ice pellets, followed by freezing rain last evening.


Isn't the ice pretty?  (a bit distorted through the dirty window)

Everyone is out cleaning their driveways with snowscoops, to snowblowers that you push, to snowblowers on tractors.


Hubby used the snowblower and scoop.

The sun is shining and it's a beautiful winter day.

I noticed a lot of cars going past with skiis on the roof.
They're heading to Crabbe Mountain about 20 minutes
from here.  It's really just a hill but has some great runs
and it the steepest verticle east of the Laurentian Mountains
which run through Quebec.
I'm sure they will enjoy the fresh snow this weekend as
will the snowmobilers. 

I'll stick to driving in the car.

Have a lovely weekend my friends.

Blessings to you!

Pamela

  2. What a gorgeous view and so different from us here in the Southwest US. If not for blogging I wouldn't be able to enjoy such diversity. Thanks for sharing your neck of the woods with us. I (rather hubby) will be cleaning up from wind storm last night with temps today in the high 70's. Have a wonderful bundled up weekend. Patty

  3. That sounded like quite the storm Pamela. We are not getting much here in ON, the winter just doesn't seem to want to settle this year!

    I am passing the Liebster award on to you my friend....much deserved! See http://theelegantchateau.blogspot.com/2012/01/thank-you-my-friend.html. Diane

  4. LOVE sparkle photos!

    Dislike living with ice. But do love the beautiful photo ops it gives us. :-)

  5. Hi Pamela! Again, I'm so enjoying the gorgeous snow and ice through your blog. It is so pretty and I know folks in your area know how to deal with all of this white stuff. Stay warm and safe and keep snapping!:)
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,

  6. Hi Pamela! It's the driving in the snow that would be the most challenging sport for folks around here! Haha! A gentle slope sounds wonderful. Your snowy vistas are gorgeous! Thanks for the peek!.

  7. Sun on the ice on tree branches is always so beautiful and you have captured it well. I am about to go out and rake us debris from a recent rain storm. We are still waiting for winter to arrive but I don't think it's going to. The daffodils are coming up way too early and the trees are getting full of buds. It feels strange to miss a season...but time will tell! Have a good weekend!

  10. Hi Pamela
    Treacherous to drive in, but oh so pretty to look at.
    I'm staying warm this weekend, nowhere pressing to go.

  11. Oh I'm glad that you captured that ice on trees show! As my daughter and I were out and about this morning, I was lamenting that the camera was at home. Our little town has not looked so pretty in a while. Sort of like putting diamonds on a sow, but we won't go there! =)

  12. Hi Pamela,
    As always, your photos are beautiful. The storm started out as ice here in Maine but turned to drenching rain and wind. Today is sunny and in the 40's...go figure!

  13. Do drive carefully dear - looks and sounds a bit dangerous. Lovely pics though and I see your hubby has a faithful friend watching his back there! Yes, skiers will be happy I'm sure. This afternoon I walked for an hour in a calm, sunny, 60 degrees - just to breath the air and enjoy a brilliant Carolina blue sky was lovely............however I would love to be there enjoying a real Winter such as yours. Gosh, we're never satisfied are we?

    Take care -Mary X
