Did it snow?

At the end of last week, I promised to post a few extra photographs of the snow – with boats, without boats, but definitely with snow. After all the excitement we experienced given the relatively large snowfall, it already seems so long ago. Now, the talk of the town is all about spring. Spring?! Is it here yet? No!

So, hold your horses for spring, and here are a few extra photographs of the two day winter we enjoyed.

Green on white

The next photograph was taken on Rainforest Drive:

Snow Forest Drive last week
White on green

It didn’t take too long for the quite mild temperatures to cause the snow to drop off tree limbs in great sliding thumps of snow. It was fun to walk down Rainforest Drive and dodge the wet snow bomb clumps. This wasn’t champagne powder snow, it was more like porridge.

Didn’t lounge about here for too long

The beach was interestingly different, but actually quite difficult to navigate, with all the rocks and large pebbles hidden under the snow. Next time (next year?!) I’ll come down to the beach when it is snowing, see the flakes driving in off the water.

Boats in the snow. So last week.

I think that is probably enough snow – we enjoyed it while it was here, but spring, it’s your turn now! What snow?

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

  1. Fantastic to see these photos of the snow, pc, and all its beauty. I liked seeing your beach, a scene we have seen often in non-snow times, and how different it looks with the snow. It’s funny how even something so familiar can seem completely foreign after a snowfall. I, like Walt, liked the cedar tree and snow photos. What I espec. liked was your writing here, infectiously happy. It’s clear how enchanted you are with the snow. I missed your post last week, am heading there now. I’m hoping for you that you still get more snow, winter is not over yet.

    1. Thanks, Jet! Wayne was being tongue in cheek talking about our snowmageddon here, and we likely won’t see another significant fall. It was fun to see the familiar cloaked in snow, if only for a short while!

  2. I heard you got a dump on the island. I always enjoy the “white on green”. Some of my birding friends further south have posted spring behavior of the birds. I am ready but will have to be patient yet.

  3. It’s amazing how much I can enjoy a virtual snowstorm!! Love the fabulous photos of Rainforest Drive and the beach and enjoyed the caption for the boats in the snow as much as the photo. Definitely ready for spring and thankfully for me our snow is beginning to melt with our warmer temps and sunshine, but Harper has taken to staring at me when we’re outside with a look of disbelief that she’s expected to walk anywhere near mud. Little amazed you did not have a snow themed beer for the week and hope you enjoyed a spring-like weekend!

    1. Snow somewhere else at the end of a long winter is always enjoyable! No mud proof dog socks for Harper? Do they even exist, and would she tolerate them?!
      If rain is spring-like, then yesterday, and the rest of this week can certainly be called spring-like!
      Happy to see Everton scrape a win today, and look at Spurs go – what’s happening there? Mourinho survives another week…
      Hope your week isn’t too cold, or too muddy!
