Being out in “lousy weather” is the way to experience life.
Lake Nipissing is not always calm and benign.
The weather changed yesterday afternoon on Trout Lake.
The skies have been gorgeous this past week and Chisolm Township was the place to be.
South Shore Road farm field.
It’s warm and the fog is caused by the remnants of the ice in the lake.
Perhaps the ice will be gone today.
Summer finally arrived in North Bay yesterday.
There is still ice on the lake.
But it doesn’t matter.
From winter to spring.
One Mile Bay yesterday morning.
The view out my side door this afternoon:
On Sunset Point the cedars grow…
…enduring in the winter snow.
Oak leaves are often left by the tree to hang for the winter and so do not fall to the forest floor where they would be protected from the weather by the snow blanket.
They will finally drop when Spring arrives with new growth.
I had the great fortune of meeting new friends who live in Kelowna.
This is the view from their deck which overlooks the town and Lake Okanogan.
You can see tomorrow’s weather from here.
It’s -30C outside.
Here is a little warming help from last summer.
Hope this works.
January Thaw is with us.
Depressing for those who love snow, but rather pretty nonetheless.
