All Is Calm, All Is Bright


Calm returned yesterday morning after Friday's blizzard.  The day dawned bright, frosty and clear. 

 
I got dressed in waterproof clothing to go out and start clearing the snow and took these photographs.  A couple of minutes without gloves and I couldn't feel my fingers ~ not a good sign.

 
I had to go back indoors to add more layers.  The sunshine was deceptive, as the air temperature was in the minus 20s. 
 

The snow clearance operation in our street was a big one.  The main question: where to put all that snow?  The road is getting narrower as more and more snow is ploughed off the driveways and pushed out there.  The gardens are already piled so high with the stuff that it is becoming almost impossible to shovel yet more onto the piles.   It is beginning to look like a long winter and it is only early January.
