The Difference

Last year at this time we had had a storm that lasted for three days. That storm was a mere blip on the storm radar that year because we had epic storms and snowfall beginning in the last week of January. It was a miserable winter. Pictures of our back yard at that time will give you an idea of the snow we had.




                                              The red markers indicate my garden plot.



This year, every time we have snow, we have rain to take it away. This is the same area today, one year later.







Thank you, El NiƱo.

    1. It truly was a nightmare. For three days, nothing moved. Every two days we had a storm it seemed. Record snowfall, then flooding of course. Winter misery!

  6. I remember hearing about all of the snow Down East last year. We had a fair bit too, possibly the 2nd snowiest winter of our 10 here in Ottawa.
