Walking to Work–Monday and Tuesday

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On Sunday night it was howling and blizzarding when I left work.  This was the scene the next morning.  There had been much Sturm und Drang but it hadn’t amounted to much snow.  When I saw this I thought “Oh here we go…” but it petered out again, which was fine by me.

This scene may look old but there is a modern fluorescent bulb in the lamp.

A couple of cute little houses in Kingscourt.  There are tons of cute little houses in Kingscourt.   As you can see, after the burst of snow, came a lovely, sunny day.

Yours truly, dressed for walking in a blizzard.  I have just discovered that a ski mask is just the best invention ever!  Walking actually wasn’t bad underfoot.  The snow was light and fluffy and no ice involved.

A couple of houses along Corrigan St.  The white dots on the bottom house, are snow, accentuating the lines of the siding.  The style of putting the siding vertically instead of horizontally is quite popular these days.  I like it too.

The former Robert Meek School on Bagot St., now home to the Boys and Girls Club and various other community agencies.   The snow really came down for quite a while, but again, didn’t actually amount to too much, although definitely more than yesterday–about 3 inches.

After living far from work for the last couple of winters, it’s great to not have to worry about digging out the car and driving through snowstorms.   My first winter after arriving from BC, and never having driven in winter, I lived in Gananoque and worked in Kingston, and it was the worst winter in decades, starting with a huge ice storm.  Talk about being thrown in the deep end!  I made it through with myself and the car in one piece.
