My oldest son decided to try out his little wood stove today.

He also told me to stop taking pictures because he wasn't a model for my photo blog! Oh well!

Beautiful colours of sunrise this morning, with the full moon.

Wind gusts close to 100km/hr this morning (it's didn't snow, so not a blizzard, this is just blowing snow).

The wind calmed a lot by the afternoon leaving lovely new snow drifts.

Last week I took of photo of the bench in the back of the yard and now you can barely see it.
I am trying out different filters/effects.

Since "popping out" to take a photo in the back yard, in -25ºC weather, with snow up to my knees, involves all these extra, warm clothes,

I walked to get the mail too (sorry about the mitten in the top of the photo, this is taken with my phone).

Lots of lovely fluffy snow this afternoon.

A Loggerhead Shrike caught a bird in our backyard.
We have never seen this bird before (I don't think it should be so far north in the wintertime), so it was interesting to learn about it.
