Snowed Under!

Well, a slight exaggeration. But it sure feels like it, considering just how long this snow has been around - a good number of months now, with no thaw in sight. And we are hoping for a gentle, lengthy thaw, or many of us are going to end up with flooded basements!

Even the squirrels are desperate...too much snow to find their hoardings from the beginning of winter. They are now reduced to the seeds dropping from the bird feeders above. The reindeer looks like he is still smiling, but I think he is actually gritting his teeth. Unfortunately, his owners are unable to reach the electrical cord to bring him in. Our whole neighbourhood still looks like Christmas...decorations everywhere. The Christmas lights we spread across the bushes in front of the house are totally buried.

There is at least a foot and a half of snow around us all in this neighbourhood. Not counting the piles from shoveling.

Oh, the indignity of it all...


  1. Oh Kay! What can I say?!! When will it ever end?

  2. You seem to be getting the kind of spring we had last year, only the snow was only a few inches deep at the most and of course it was only just below freezing, but it went on and on. It was still very cold when we started out for Canada last May. I bet you are reet fed up. By the way, you get huge squirrels over there and the biggest one with the jacket and trousers looks as if he is enjoying the weather...
