Snow Job

My last few blogs have repeatedly mentioned the tenacious winter weather. Yesterday, March 8th, we awoke here in Shearwater to the beginnings of a mini blizzard. It snowed ferociously for about four hours. Here is a photo essay on yesterday’s weather. At 7 am this morning, the sky is cloudless.

The forecast was for snow flurries with accumulations to 2 cm.

Steady as she snows.


Never Look Back

Seafire sits forlornly at the dock, her bow pointing in the direction of Mexico.

Stacking it up. I have been places where no-one would notice  a small flurry like this.

I don’t know what I thought was so funny!

Don’t slam the door.

Home is where the boat is.

Warm and snug inside….make the world go away.

In late afternoon the skies clear and the temperature tumbles

I’d prefer that the only ice I see is beneath a palm tree…in a lime margarita!

Cold feet, cold heart, cold beak, cold fish!

The morning after. Cold, clear calm. By the end of the day another storm was moving in.

Dreaming of spring
…Any day now.


Hold fast to dreams For when dreams go Life is a barren field Frozen with snow. Langston Hughes.

  1. Looks awful! (though definitely makes for some pretty photos and that frozen waterfall is amazing). If it’s any consolation, we had more white stuff here yesterday too…though thankfully it didn’t last. Dreaming of spring for sure…it’s gotta come, right?

    Have always loved that Langston Hughes poem. Hang in there!


  2. Oh Look! That’s not a Kermode, it’s a polar bear!
