It just keeps coming

It is still snowing.

There is about a metre of it out there.

Yesterday was beautiful with bright blue sky. We skiied up to the view behind our cabin that looks over the lake.

The snow was dense and skiing was a bit of a slog. The trail was hard to find. The tracks of rabbits and squirrels looked deep and didn't leave behind just the markings of feet, but underbellies too. We tapped the snow off heavy looking trees, relieving them of their weight.

At the view we dug out something of a snow den and enjoyed hot chocolate. There was just enough cloud for colour to stick to as the sun set.

Apparently we're just a few inches away from a record snow fall. It's still coming down.

Wow! Record snowfall! And to think that you two picked this Winter to spend there - you now will be able to say "I remember the Winter of 2004/05" that we spent in the North and they had record snowfall!" Of course, you won't say that till you get to be "old" folks and start saying "I remember when" Love looking at your pictures - is a book in the making of your adventures?

what i had said was you should out with the skis and in with the snowshoes and that wooden ones are best.
free hands and no trails necessary.
