Snowing and Blowing

Daily Shoot: Pretend you're a stringer for your local newspaper today. Make a photo that captures something newsworthy to you.

 

It's nice to live in a place where a snowstorm (and not even a major one) is the news. As I watch the evening news with stories of violence from Egypt, of protests in other countries in the Middle East, of a major cyclone in Australia, I feel safe and warm here.

 

Montreal is prepared for winter storms. Public transportation still ran (I walked down to the metro and went to my volunteer "job" at the Atwater Children's Library). In the evening, with a bit of shovelling, I was able to get my car out and go to my photography course. Our homes are insulated, our layers of clothing keep us warm.

 

And the bonus - sunny weather follows and there will be plenty of snow for snowshoeing!
