Hi Everyone. I wanted to share these photos I took on the early morning of February 15. The sunrise was spectacular and turned the sky to pretty pink and mauve along with the snow....plus, there was a beautiful hoar frost coating everything. It was a cold morning so I took these photos from inside.
I took this photo with my cell phone on Feb. 16 which promised a lovely sunny day but turned out to be cloudy. We've had some really great sunrises this month.

We've had some milder weather the past few days and yesterday, although just 1C, was gorgeous with the sunshine. The warmth of the sun is melting the snow down and making it shine under it's rays.
Melting snow along the road has made a long puddle reflecting the blue sky.
We are getting some snow melt and with above freezing temps the rest of the week and rain on the weekend, our snow will go down a bit more. The roads are terrible with frost heaves, cracks and pot holes.....and watch out for those huge puddles hiding potholes under them! Lots of vehicles are being damaged after hitting potholes or rough pavement. One has to drive a lot slower than normal. Do you have that problem where you live?
Well, that's it from here today. A boring life these winter days and not much going on. I've had issues with my left knee and hip the past couple of weeks and have difficulty walking up and down stairs. 😟 Needless to say snowshoeing is off the books for now.
I think I need some retail therapy. Haha. Hopefully I can walk the mall! I might also need a holiday or even a weekend away. Maybe in March. What have you been up to? Are you going 'south' this winter or abroad or just to the next town? Are the winter doldrums getting to you too?
Hang in there. The weather will soon change for the better (I know many of you are seeing spring blossoms blooming already!) and spring is officially just a month away.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!
