That’s So 2020 – All Signs Point to Winter

November 11, 2020

Here we were, not even at the midpoint of November and the outdoor landscape suggested we were closer to January. Maybe Mother Nature was just trying to cover up the year that was 2020.

All Signs Point to Winter ©

Blinding sun with little heat,

sparkling snow on our street,

long dark shadows, really neat,

freezing hands and icy feet,

chirping birds, cold berries eat,

clear frosty air, what a treat,

dressed in parkas, when we meet.

All signs point to winter. Sweet!

Long shadows
I think this ice may be getting thicker
Yup, if you are boating or swimming here today, you are in danger
You have been warned
Winter driving. YAY!!!

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. After a couple of months of neglect here, the snow gods again smiled on us and covered all in winter white. We went from average daily highs of +5C to -15C with a wind chill of -26C. Now, that is winter. Thanks for reading Marion. Allan

    1. Yes, the pretty is what lures us in and then the frozen fingers and toes send us back indoors. Finally the wind has calmed down, so that is good news. Thanks for reading and commenting. Allan

    1. If it has to be cold and drab, the least Mother Nature can do is dress it up with a coat of white. Agreed, it is much prettier after the new snow. Now, we just need to turn the thermostat up to about -10C with little or no wind. Thanks for reading. Stay well and stay warm. Allan

  1. Snow is just SO beautiful: it covers everything like a fluffy white blanket and makes for a picturesque panorama. Snow is also better than rain, and I hope we get to see it once more in Ireland before the spring arrives, but the temperatures were over +9’C today. Thanks for sharing, Allan and have a good day. Aiva 🙂

    1. So true. I agree with your snow is better than rain. But in Vancouver, where it can rain from November through March, they often say… “Better wet than white”. Albertans out enjoying winter in the sunny cold say… “Better White than Wet. I would find it difficult to see mostly grey skies in winter. We were just put on a walk at -15C (feels like -23C) and dressed as we were, it was perfectly lovely. Hope you get some more snow too, Aiva, but I will keep sharing mine with you. Stay well and have a great weekend. Allan
