It’s been one of those winters. Here in Ottawa, snow has been on the ground since November 12 and we haven’t seen the grass since. I have about 1m of snow in my backyard; in the front yard, the snowploughs and snow blowers and shovels have conspired to creat a 2-3m high mass. We can’t see the street from our living room.
Late winter is always gray and dreary. The pristine white of fresh snow yields to the greys and beiges of melting snow mixed with pollution.
To top it off, yesterday we got a freak storm that dropped about 10cm of wet, heavy snow in about an hour.
Sure, it’s pretty again, but really? Enough.
In protest of Mother Nature’s capriciousness I present to you an antidote to snow. Enjoy.
