Every February 2nd, Punxsutawney TW, "seer of seers and prognosticator of prognosticators," emerges from his cozy hole atop Gobbler's Knob just after sunrise.

 

If, according to legend, he sees his shadow he will return to his hole and there will be six more weeks of winter. If he doesn't see his shadow, an early spring is in the forcast.

 

Um... hopefully we can keep him distracted. Between those sunglasses and hamming it up for the camera, maybe he won't turn around! ;~)

When there's snow on the ground, I like to pretend I'm walking on clouds.

(It is Spring in the UK, and we are still gripped in the cold hand of Winter!)

We're expecting another blizzard today... this epic sunrise is a warning of the impending storm!

we have been having snowsqualls all day - I took this photo around noon today - well, since then, the snow has not stopped - we figure we have at least a foot and a half of snow - and it's still November! the deer have been here on and off today - if this snow keeps up, my deer friends will yard up soon;-(

...that this was a dream, but we are getting more snow today!

...doesn't look there is any prancing going on today...and more snow on the way!! This is a never ending winter!!

Stuck in the house again with this long, long winter we are all enjoying here in north east North America.

I thought this looked a little bit like the hull of a ship. Not really now that I processed it, though. :)

It has become my tradition this time of year to "look back" over the last 11 months and choose images from each that I didn't get around to posting for some reason or another.

 

The long, cold winter of 2013-14 seemed to refuse to end. There was still ice floating in Lake Superior at Little Girl's Point in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan into the first week of June.

 

A cool way to view mine or anyone else's photostream is on fluidr.

Sittin' on the fence post, chewin' my bubblegum, playing with my yo-yo (whoo-whoo,)

And along came Herman the worm, & he was THIS BIG!

And I said, "Herman, baby, what happened?"

 

This is one of my 4 year old's favorite songs, so when we found this wooly bear caterpillar we just had to name him Herman.

   

The latest snow reports show that the North Shore Mountains are still buried in snow. Some locations surveyed showed to be 200% of the average historical data for this time of year, and the snow is still piled over 15 feet high in some areas! It looks like this years summer hiking season will be a short one unless we get a blast of summer weather quickly.

 

Clearly winter is being persistent this year. Here is a shot from Lac Le Jeune form this past winter. Years ago we used to shovel the snow of the ice here and play hockey on the lake.

 

Enjoy your week!

This little tree somehow has managed to hold onto its leaves, through this really nasty winter we're having this year.

The Long Winters

The title pretty much explains it.

 

I need to see some green now. I know I have mentioned that I love winter, but I think I have had enough.

 

Today, Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) had Day 33 of the Extreme Cold Weather Alert. My professor walked into my morning lecture complaining and venting about the cold. I think we've had enough Mother Nature.

 

Since I have so many photos that I haven't shared from my summer archives, I think I'm going to do that for a bit now.

 

This is from last year during cherry blossom season...can't even believe this was almost a year ago, when I had just finished third year, and wasn't even worried about the same things I'm worried about now.

 

Life changes too fast.

 

Seasons should change faster.

 

Lol.

 

Okay time to do some work! Bye! :-)

 

Thanks for always commenting and inspiring me!
