Life in the White Lane

It’s been a few days since I  have posted, so I thought I would post what I have been up to.  Keeping out of trouble, mostly anyway, and that includes shovelling snow.

Actually these photos ares from a couple days ago, I woke up to a gift from the north pole.  Snow is not a big problem for me unless I need to drive on the highways, in town it is just a minor nuisance including when my car doors and windows get frozen closed.

It took nearly 90 minutes to clear the driveway, and the following few days added a tiny bit more.  It felt good to warm up inside by the fireplace, and yes .. have a coffee.

However in the last few day the temps have changed from minus 16 Celsius to plus 5 Celsius expected today, quite a nice jump. Yay!

Big help has been my neighbour, who uses his bobcat to clear the road, not just in front of his house.  Muchos Gracias to him.

So much improved that yesterday, after a nice long walk, I ventured out with on the bike with #1 son.  It was a tad sloppy with snow still around, and puddles but no mishaps and it felt awesome to be back out.


It’s only been a month but I can already see the days are getting longer, starting to feel that optimism that comes with spring.  I saw and heard quite a few birds out there yesterday encouraging the snow to melt. It’s working !


Have a terrific day, and thanks for reading ! – Dave

  1. Hi. I went out for a fairly long walk today. It’s a cold day, but it felt good to be striding along. See you!

  2. Yes, we got hit with over a foot of snow here in Port moody last week. I live on a hilly, residential street, so the street wasn’t plowed for four days after the first snowfall. The upside was that I got a lot of walking in to and from the SkyTrain station. Of course the commute to work was over twice as long, but I thought of this as extra reading time. And now the snow is pretty much gone…it was a fun winter, while it lasted. 🙂


  3. That’s quite a bit of snow for Penticton. I’m looking forward to being back for a while, probably in July. 🙂

    That is a good amount of snow, I love it when I start to notice the days getting longer. The anticipation of spring soon to arrive.

    we are supposed to get lots of snow over night tonight into tomorrow here in Ottawa. I have been sick all week (a virus picked up from my grandchildren) so hopefully feeling well enough to get to some shovelling tomorrow.
