scenes from a mid february - photos 1, 5, 6 & 7 were all taken while on today's early morning frigid but sunny walk
It's another typical winter here in Nova Scotia - a constantly changing buffet of weather conditions. Blizzard/white out conditions, snowfall warnings, windchill advisories, unseasonably warm temperatures, frigid cold temperatures, glorious sunshiny blue sky days contrasted by beautiful pale whites and grey days, days that feel like Spring is definitely in the air and lots of days that just feel like plain old winter. It's something for us to gab about in line at the grocery store (a Canadian's most favourite topic of conversation is never religion or politics - it's always the weather). This morning's walk along the harbour's edge felt like Antarctica, no wind (chill) thankfully, but really cold. It's down and fleece and hood zipped up weather - snowdrifts frozen so hard you can walk on top of them. By lunchtime when Miss D and I took the car to do a few errands plus and a sweet little walk along the salt mine road it was like a spring day again, all drippy and melty and with the bluest blue sky ever.
