A Walk in the Snow–Pt. 2

More from my very enjoyable walk yesterday.   Somehow I got lost and stumbled into the Coffee Way doughnut store.  I don’t know how I do it!

This is the continuation of York St., across from the Memorial Center.

Landsdowne and, I think, Stanley St.   Splendid old home.

I lived at the end of Carleton St. for a brief while, and there is a field between there and Concession St., that is now up for development.   Anyway, sometimes you would want to pop over to the little mall for a haircut, or something from the Sally Ann, or, say, 150 Coffee Way doughnuts.  So you would walk across the field and pop through a hole in the fence.   But as you can see from the paler boards, the powers that be keep filling in the holes.  I’m not sure what’s so terrible about keeping a hole open, but there you go.

This is the property at the back of the two derelict houses near Division and Concession.  Without the leaves on the trees, you can see that it is an enormous property (not so much in this photo).  The back fence is where the little grey shed is, waaaaay in the back.  There was a fire in the house on the left.   Nothing has been done with either house.  I wonder what the story is.   My guess is that they are in some sort of legal limbo?

An ice comparison.  The above picture is from the freezing rain two days ago.   The bottom picture is from two years ago.  That one was a doozy!

The sidewalk plow had obviously been around, but then the snowplow had come by and plowed a bunch of snow up onto the sidewalk.   Fortunately Cowdy St. is not busy with traffic.

Coming down Pine to Patrick St.

I went for a country drive today, so will have pictures of that tomorrow.   The sun came out the moment that I arrived back home, but is now gone again.    Glenburnie Grocery was just hopping!  I’ve never seen so many cars in their parking lot.   The snow is melting slowly but surely, with the temperatures just above zero.   Stay tuned.
