Winter is Here and It's Going on Two Years Swallow My Pride: A Photo Essay

Text and photos (c) Robert Barry Francos

Since I live in the Prairies of Canada now, people assume it is always cold and always snowy, but actually, the motto here is "Saskatoon Shines!" because we get more sunlight than almost anyplace else in the country. But we do have our snow days, such as the blizzard that flew through a few days ago. Here are some of my shots (photos can be enlarged by clicking on them):

[When opening the front, there was a lip that was against the door]
[The front steps]
[After digging us out]
[Snow "cave" nature-driven sculpture on the back of a car on the street]
[Our back porch; note the height of the snow on the table and benches]

[Frost on our rear upper window; on the second, you can see the snow on the roof of the addition, just past the window]

[The ice coming over the weir as seen from the Railway Bridge, overlooking the South Saskatchewan River, facing south (Saskatoon is also known as the "City of Bridges")]

[Railway Bridge pylon caked with ice, looking straight down]
[Statue at the University that looks cold; I love white snow on a black scuplture]
