We finally got some snow. It wasn't much- about 2 or 3 inches but it sure looked pretty. I tried to take some photos while it was snowing last night but I'm not a good enough photographer. I did get this one of my street with the tree that I always photograph in the fall. I took it without a flash at 10:00 at night. It was so silent and beautiful but I had on pj's and socks and wasn't going outside. This was my walk from the train to work. The trees were coated and it was so beautiful. The trouble with snow in the city is that it doesn't stay white for long. This final one is the trees outside our building. We have a nice courtyard in the back that is not supposed to be a haven for smokers but often is. In the warm months, there are always folks sitting there. The schools closed because the city can't afford to plow the secondary streets (if we get a big snowstorm, folks are on their own. In the past, neighbors have banded together to shovel out their street.). Our street hadn't been plowed before we left for work but was nearly clear to the asphalt by the time we got home. It should be nice and icy tomorrow as the temps plummet tonight.
I am going to a Rehabilitation Readiness Assessment training tomorrow. I had to meet with my supervisors today (double teamed again) so they could tell me my trainings were approved. It seems we have some people who (gasp!) don't attend trainings they sign up for! The very idea! My training sounds kinda boring but at least I'll get some knitting done. I'll sit in the back and pay attention and participate when necessary. And maybe get a pair of socks finished.
We're in for a few really cold days and then some nice ones over the weekend. Winter is half over and I noticed something today. At 5 o'clock in the evening - it was still light! I noticed and it made my heart glad.
Now I am off for dinner with Pk. It seems we are the only ones home for dinner and we have decided to go out. See you later!

Yes! It makes my heart glad too! I flipped on the outside lights before dropping Vaughan off at his class. The younger kids and I got home around 5 and WE DIDN'T NEED THE OUTSIDE LIGHTS!! The boys have noticed the lengthening days too. We're all looking for signs of spring coming. It's been a long winter already.

oh those first days when you notice the light at the end of the day are special!

Love the delicate snow on the branches. How lovely!

Daylight savings is a little over a month away!

I love that muffled snowiness!

Lovely photos! I still hate snow, though. Hope your trip to work is safe and uneventful in the ice. You are such a good grownup!

The snow on the trees is beautiful. Nice photos. (Sor of cooling to look at - last night I was watching TV after midnight and the late news reported it was STILL 34 degrees C outside. But I'm in frigid airconditioning this morning) I love lots of snow when I go up to the skifields, but I always think actually living in it (and the ice, and the slush later) would be quite a pain, day to day.

Why does your snow look so much prettier than my snow. My snow looks deep and dirty and cold. It has required that trucks come to take some of it away. I hate my snow. Yours, I really like. It is magical.

I have a training tomorrow, too. I'm teaching it, though. Less with the knitting... Enjoy!

A little bit of sunshine does wonders, doesn't it?
