It’s Beginning To Feel A Lot Like Christmas

snow covered rhododendronsThursday the 13th of November was just another autumn day with lots of leaves on the ground but Friday morning it was snowing just a little but before long we had a nice white layer of snow over pretty much everything.

At first glance out the bedroom window I thought it was fog as it was really light and the flakes just floated down giving the foggy feel in the dark. However when I got down stairs and put Honey the Pit Bull out I realized it was actually snow and not fog. How cool. I always like that first snow, especially if I don’t have to shovel it.

It snowed most of the day but only got heavy a couple of times but most important it never got windy so the snow never became a hazard. The following morning there was some ice and the snow on the sidewalks was very crispy and crunchy. Plenty noisy walking before daybreak but so pretty.

It was still dark when I took this photo of Sherrard Ave near our house. I love this huge snow covered evergreen tree.

I used an editor to bring up the light in my photo so you could see it like I was seeing it. When ever we get a snow like this I walk down Sherrard to get a photo of this tree.

The nice thing about this time of the  morning is the fact there are pretty much no people or vehicles on the streets. I love the quiet serene feeling at 4 or 5 am.

snow covered power linesWe have has such a nice autumn that we still have healthy green rose bushes and leaves for the snow to land on which always makes for good photos. Love the contrast between the bright green and white.

The snow did pile up on power and phone lines but wasn’t heavy enough to cause damage here in Moncton. It did look pretty cool with the street lights making the snow covered lines glow.

After the snow was finished a few maple trees decided to drop almost all their leaves making it look awesome.
