Cloudy Monday Mornings (Monochrome Monday)

Daylight savings finished for the summer here yesterday. It’s just in the nick of time given that winter will unbelievably be here next month.

Although I’m still wrapping my head around the fact in this day and age the seasons begin during the month not on the first of the month when I grew up. Or maybe that was just a southern hemisphere thing!







Good weather for ducks!

I only joked with someone on Tuesday that I hadn’t moved to Kitimat for the sunshine – I’m here strictly for the snow and grey weather!

People seldom believe me when I say that but I’ve given up trying to convince them otherwise. I don’t like bright sunshine, perhaps I was a vampire in another life who knows… it would certainly explain why I enjoyed traveling through the Transylvanian Alps of Romania so much!

Looking out the window this morning though, seeing the mist amongst the branches of the trees, it was just beautiful. This photo doesn’t do the scene justice!

Sometimes photos just don't give reality the credit it deserves!

Anyways, for the majority of folks in town it’s simply been wet and miserable for the last two days but for Master Eleven and his mates it’s also been a biking delight. The lads spent two hours yesterday slipping and sliding around town.

I really do need to buy him more sneakers though as the ones that came home yesterday were beyond recognition. With only one pair it means they must go directly into the wash, to be dried overnight in readiness for the following day.

Yes, the poor lad is quite correct in asking… “mum, how much longer?”

Now THAT’S what I’m talking about!

There was no containing my excitement when looking out my window this morning – not only was there more snow – but there were LOADS more snow. My snow gauge told me so!

My very own snow gauge!

Looking at my nearby trees confirmed this wonderful snowfall of approximately eight to ten inches. Could have even been a tad more.

Snow, snow glorious snow!

However much the snowfall was, it was glorious this morning.

I love the landscape after a snowfall!

Before the sun fully rises its always so still, so peaceful, but as the sun rises, there’s always that hint of a breeze whereby the snow slowly slides off the branches but before it does, the world looks for the briefest of moments like this…

Yup, it sure did snow last night!

The sun has been out for most of the day but thanks to the amount of snow that actually fell there’s still snow on the ground this afternoon but… “mum, how much longer?”
