The Dead of Winter by BenoitAubry The Dead of Winter by BenoitAubry
I just took this a couple of hours ago after shoveling our walkway. My neighbour was heading out so I decided to follow him around and see what kind of shots I could get. My auto-focus was going nuts, reflecting on all kinds of surfaces.

It's been snowing like this for 2 hours and there's no sign of it letting up. We'll likely get about 50 cm (almost 20 inches) of the white stuff. It's still not the worst I've ever seen but for Ottawa, it's likely a record for this time of year.

For more on this story, go here [link]

PS... I'm really sorry about all these snow shots. [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] It's all I'm getting unless someone wants to smuggle me to CUba somehow!

Thanks very much :highfive: I really appreciate it.

Just to let you know, we've had worse winters than the one just past. It's by no means a record for the area nor the country. It's just one of those things that living in Canada means we have to endure. :)

Pretty smetty. I am soooo ready for spring. I wonder if it will come this year or if it is too buried under the snow to come out :(.

Patience. It's never good to rush spring. Especially this year.

I'm not into flooding either, but can't we have some spring sometime? I believe it is a lost cause :(.

I wish the weather would oblige the technical seasons :roll:.

It does. It's just a delayed reaction. The same as CO2 levels in the atmosphere based on the sun's heat on the planet. But, that's another story.

You have to admit that it was pretty... as long as you didn't have to shovel (which I didn't)!

yeah, it was. I'm glad I got these shots last night though. While the banks were smooth and barely touched

:wow:

Impressionnant. bah nous on a eu 3 flocons ^^
Heureusement, quand j'étais à Strasbourg, il à neigé. Bien moins que ça, mais suffisament pour que tout devienne blanc :aww:

De toute façon, nous en région parisienne, il neige tellement peu par ans que nous ne sommes pas assez équipé pour subvenir en car de grosse averse. passé les 2 cm de neige, c'est le bordel, tous les axes sont coupés, plus de bus,.... alors imagine plus de 3m de neiges, en plusieurs fois, ok, mais quand même ;-)

Nous ici, ça se réchauffe petit à petit. le printemps pointe son nez ^^

Le pire que j'ai vécu, c'est 460 cm... en deux jours! A Winnipeg dans les Prairies en 1967.

Il fallait oter la neighe de la fenêtre de ma chambre pour sortir et pelleter devant la porte. Le pire, c'est que c'était de la neige qui venait d'une tempête en Saskatchewan, au-delà de 600 km plus loin.
