Come on a walk with me...winter wonderland in Ottawa - the first snowfall!
"Come on a walk with me to see what I saw today when I went walking in the first fresh snowfall in Ottawa. 25 cm of snow! First snowfall. Fresh.¬† Pristine.¬† Clean. Beautiful. Sparking. Bright. It sits prettily on the trees, nestled on the branches in every crook and curve. We bundle up with ¬†heavy boots, hats, coats, mittens and scarves. We clear snow from our¬† cars. We shovel¬† our driveways. Lucky ones have snow blowers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h-UJtacXko http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89kAyqp4dUw Snow plows are busy¬† making sure that roads are accessible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZBCmHLpz5Q Those young at heart are out building forts,¬†snowmen, throwing snow balls, wresting in the snow. Snowboarders and skiers are thrilled.¬† It is written all over their faces. Little kids get pulled along in sleds - what a ride! Even the dogs are happy too! Life continues.¬† Buses are running. Car parks are full. By the end of the day you can find some heaps of snow in various locations. A nice day for a hot chocolate. I hope that you enjoyed this walk with me!¬† It was so lovely to be out in in the first fresh snowfall! Love, Magdalene"
