It's another blizzard day this last day of January 2015 here in New Brunswick. It's the third snowstorm in a week and we now have more than 70 cm. of fresh snow on the ground. Yes, I'm tired of it!! I won't bore you with any pictures of blowing and drifting snow this time. : )
Our local fire hall got new red siding in November. Doesn't it look great against the snow and blue sky?
I went for a walk while our car was in for its annual motor vehicle inspection at the local garage the other day. It was one of those beautiful winter days in-between snowstorms. There wasn't any wind although the flag seemed to pick up in the above photo. I walked down the road past the orchard and will share more photos later this coming week.
The swing and tire swing are waiting for spring and little ones to have fun.
A snowmobile track up through the old orchard. I've been having issues with my camera this week. The focus keeps messing up on me and just goes in and out trying to focus on something. I thought it was the cold but it happened inside too. Hm. It corrected itself a few minutes later but I'm not happy. I'm probably wearing it out!!
I tried the camera again for this shot and it worked. Walking up the hill tuckered me out. I had on my big insulated rubber boots which aren't the best for walking but they keep my feet warm and dry with wool socks. The road is wet not icy.
I told you about the huge transformer that was to be moved this week along our road. The move was postponed twice and finally on Friday it was a go. This thing weighs 110 Tons and took up almost the whole road!! It was interesting to see it go by. I've seen much larger loads on the infamous Highway 63 between Fort McMurray and Edmonton in Alberta but this was a big event for our country road.
That's a lot of wheels!!
The move went smoothly and it was delivered safely. It took months of planning and I expect a lot of money to transport this transformer across the province.
Marbles in a cream bottle. No, I haven't lost my marbles!! Yet! : )
Can you see the reflections of the trees and deck in them?
Well that's my selection for Sunlit Sunday this week. I hope you are enjoying the weekend and perhaps some sunshine where you are. It's going to be bitterly cold the next 3 days as an arctic blast moves in again. But. That usually means sunshine. I sure hope so!
