Yesterday I was intrigued with the sky and the snow.  Here are some shots I took.

Lake Nipissing had a strong blustery wind yesterday.  This is one of the snow scenes.



Wind Carved Snow




I was entranced by the sky, these are some of them. The dark "squares" are ice huts.  They will be gone off the lake in about a month.




It was interesting that the snow was on only one side of the trees.  the wind had cleared most however these were unusual (to me).




Despite all our cold weather this stream is still running free!

I really like these photos, Judy ... Looks like a cold day, though.  That's the way I enjoy snow ... in pictures!!   ;D  The sky and clouds intrigue me, as well.  I like the view of the road through the trees.   :thumbsup:
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass .... it's about learning to dance in the rain!


Thanks for sharing the snow photos Judy, looks very cold to me. I'm with Jane on this one though, I like my snow in photos.

I guess the ice huts are for fishing? What are they made of?

Great photos, Judy.  Thanks for sharing.  I wish I could say I'll take my snow by way of pictures, but I'm afraid that's not the case.   :(

The ice huts are made of wood or steel and are sitting on long blades, much like long skate blades, thicker though, they also have wood stoves in them to keep the occupants warm!  They are for ice fishing.

Thank you for the comments!

I don't have any photos of snow in open areas, as Judy does, but I do have a couple from here in the trailer park that shows what we've been getting.

This is across the road from my front door.  They came in with a front end loader and moved some that had been plowed and was blocking a driveway access to this spot away from any driveway.

This is a pile across the road and off to the right of my front door.

And this is another of the front end loader piles.  This one was smoothed and worked on by a teen age boy who lives in that trailer.

Wow that is a lot of snow Jeanne.  I'm glad they moved some of it away.

Wonderful photos from both of you!

Great pics by everyone. Don the ice huts are for fishing and are generally made of light froame wood construction so they can be pulled on and off the ice by snow mobile
Phil. 1: 21. For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.


  Great pictures of the winter we have been having.   

Jeanne Lee:  The picture of the pile of snow beside the road reminds me of a time at approx 40 or so yrs ago when at my MIL's there was a pile of snow beside the then Hwy 11 and yes our children plus the other children in the area had a great time playing.  At that time it was the major hwy going (no bypass) through  town I think that the drivers took much more care way back then and also the children were also on the look out for danger.

Judy & Jeanne Lee thanks for sharing.

Also what John did not mention was that some ice hut operators have huts that are fitted out like a cottage  and for a large fee they can and are rented for weekends or even longer depending on the weather of course. 

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  Proverbs 3:6


I really enjoyed the snow pictures, and it reminds me of how long it's been since we had a really good snowfall.  We need the moisture so badly!  It was supposed to snow here last night, but....well, it's 3 AM, I couldn't sleep, so am here now, and really haven't looked out to see if we got any snow.  It's been miserably cold here for a couple of days.  Oh, well.

Anyway, Judy and Jeanne, thanks for sharing your wonderful photos!

Janet, at the point I'm not sure if I would consider any snow a "good snowfall"!   :lol:  But I understand you wanting some for the benefit of the moisture.   ;)  Glad you enjoyed looking at mine and Judy's, anyway.
