We had a three day storm last weekend and it took another day to dig out. Here is western Prince Edward Island, the wind was the worst part of the storm. While we didn’t have as much snow as the remainder of the island, the high wind caused drifting and white-outs.
It was Wednesday before we walked the boardwalk again, and we weren’t surprised to see that the wind, which had been out of the northeast during the storm, had blown off-shore much of the ice, except that at the head of the bay.
By Friday, slushy ice was forming over the bay again.
Before long all of the bay would be frozen again.
However, Sunday was a sunny day with 3 degrees C and it provided the look and feel of spring.
A pair of Mallards floated by the bridge
and a small flock of American Black Ducks lined the banks of the stream, enjoying the rare February day.
The weather is turning cold again this week but the taste of spring this past weekend was lovely.
