Merry Christmas from the white wintry west coast of Canada...for the first time in 40 years we are white from coast to coast! Saturday I took some pictures of the ice in the Fraser River. The ice made some interesting patterns on the river and you could hear it moving about if you listened closely.Sunday night it started to snow and by Monday morning we were blanketed by snow. I took this picture of the parking lot at work as the sun was coming up.
I walked over the berm to look at the street where I usually parked. Just a car of one of the homeowners across the street was seen.
Looking down the other way, a few brave souls decided to try and navigate the unploughed street. There is a small roundabout that made for tricky navigating.
The evergreens looked stately with their mantles of snow.
Wednesday we had another storm through the night, I took public transportation to work for the second time that week. The side street and trees were even deeper in snow.
Then evergreens are starting to get weighed down with their snowy coats.You can just see the Central station sign on the old train station behind the trees.
This Christmas morning I woke up to a snow covered courtyard. About 11 a.m. the snow started to fall again.
The pond and waterfall are still flowing, despite the cold weather.
The snow has been falling on and off this morning, the turkey is in the oven and beginning to smell wonderful. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and hopes you are spending it with family and friends.
