Incredible Accumulations of Snow

There seems to be no proper balance of climate on this planet of ours. Some regions, even though they are located on the same latitude, get very little or no snow at all. People from these snow poverty stricken areas complain when they look at my pictures. And I reply you can have half of this white stuff, and we would still have more than enough. Oh well, as President Carter so wisely once stated, nothing is fair in life. I hope when viewing my pictures, you get a sense how our winters have been in the last couple of years. Enjoy!

    Beautiful! I’m currently living in an apartment in a city, and don’t have to shovel a driveway, or rake off the roof, so I’m enjoying photos of snowfall much more! 🙂
    And if you claimed that weathered stump in “Casting Shadows” as a piece of modern sculpture, I don’t think anyone would question it.

    Enjoyed the photos. Of course we have lots of snow in interior Alaska. It snows every day. Shoveling and plowing snow can be a bit much. It is great for snow sports and insulating the ground. Although I love winter and snow, I agree that it can be a little too much. I’m hoping that it will melt by first of May. Thank you for sharing.

      Well, by comparison we are doing relatively well. By April 1, the last traces of snow should be gone in our region.

        Yes, it will be about mid-May when our leaves come out. Summer burst out suddenly in the North!

    It looks beautiful, but I know the downside of snow well—captive inside a house til you’re dug out, slippery roads and walkways, loss of power and heat, and strained muscles or worse from shoveling snow. We are expecting a storm here today. I filled the refrigerator yesterday and am hoping that we won’t lose power!

      Yes, it pays to be prepared. We try very hard not to get depressed with the winter blues. Have a safe week, Amy!

    This region is so pristine. I love your backyard! A photographer’s delight!

      While the region looks pristine, intensive logging in our area has made quite a dent into our forests. Thank you, Arv!

        That’s bad! It’s something that’s happening across the globe. Human greed for more resources!

    Kind of what I expected for your neck of the woods. Our snow is melting today, I am so tired of it, and so glad to see it go! Good for you for braving the elements and getting some great pictures.

      This afternoon the sun came out and I see water dripping down from our roof. There is a hint of spring in the air. Have a great day, Des!

    I especially like the second photo, dear Peter, but all of them are very charming and show the beauties of Canada. Have a nice day, our snow is melting slowly. Kind regards Mitza

      Same here. Melting snow on the rooftop create icicles, which in turn start dripping with day time temperatures climbing above zero. Kind regards! Peter

      Overall we have an excellent road maintenance service here in Canada. The snow ploughs and sanding trucks are working around the clock to keep the roads clear. Thank you Alok for your concern!

        Well, Alok, certainly for someone who lives near Toronto there is no need to talk about Canadian road maintenance. I thought your were from a more southern clime. My apologies!

    Beautiful pictures, Peter! By the way, Carter was talking about abortion in 1977 when he said “Life is often unfair.” JFK in a 1962 news conference was responding to a question on the inequities in military service assignments when he mentioned that some service men are stationed in the Antarctic while others are stationed in San Francisco and then he added that “life is unfair.”

      Thank you so much for throwing some additional light on that quote, especially for showing the context within which ‘life is unfair’ was being said!

    I don’t need snow at all – nowadays it makes me more sad than anything else.
    Besides this: Wonderful shots!

      I agree. But I do like snow in moderation. This year winter did not follow this rule. Too sad!!!

    Wonderful photos! I so enjoyed them from my hot and humid perch here in always tropical Sri Lanka! Makes me miss the snow. Not the cold, but fresh snow after a snowfall. Climate change and global warming is upon us. So much hard evidence all over the globe.

      I hope you do not have to suffer too much in the heat and humidity. One can always wear an extra coat when it is getting colder. Greetings from Canada, Peta!

    I enjoyed your photos a lot, Peter. I wish you could send us some snow here. Nowadays, It’s almost impossible to expect snow coming to where I’m living. Spring is on the way. Lovely shots. And your backyard, I wish I was there..
