Winter In Our Backyard I’m Going For A Walk

phone line in the snowYes we did have a little snow already, our first snow of November 2014, but it disappeared really fast. Then on the 27th of November we had a real snow storm.

Things started out mild so there was a bit of slush before the snow started to accumulate which later made for some tricky ice under the snow. The streets were cleared before daybreak which made it easier to walk on the streets as the sidewalks weren’t cleared yet.

No school for the kids so they didn’t have to deal with the tough walking and bad drivers.

A lot of trees and branches like the ones in the image top left came down over night putting a many customers in New Brunswick out of power. We were blessed and no power problems.

I walked down to Crowley Farm road where I saw that wind flipped this baseball field dug out during the night. Fortunately it doesn’t look damaged and will likely be able to be flipped back over and secured a little better.

sleetBefore it was day light I went outside to get a few photos. Very windy and a lot of sleet in the snow which really stings the eyes.

Jenny looked and found me a pair of Steve’s snow goggles left behind when he moved out west for work and I was back outside again to get a few more photos. Big difference with the goggles on.

As soon as it started getting light the wind slowed down and shortly after sun up it was almost gone and turned into a great day for taking a walk through the neighbourhood to see what Thursday’s storm did to Moncton. I was dressed warm and able to stay out for more than 3 hours.
