Ontario seems to be the target for snow this winter and we have been enjoying every storm that comes our way.

We cleared a lot of trees this weekend and now our garden will be getting so much more sunlight this summer. Yes summer will return.

Our panels stand alone against the sky no longer in danger of trees falling and striking them.

We live on a cottage road which means the municipality is not responsible to maintain it. In the winter we get it plowed when necessary and the logging firm that works behind us also makes sure it is passable for their trucks. So far we haven't been stuck or stranded as we thought we might living up north and back in the bush. Everyone keeps an eye on each other and makes sure neighbours are not forgotten. They don't intrude but when there's a need they are there to help.

Paul and Steve have been great looking after us when my bobcat is out of commission. 

Life in the north might be cold but it is so good.

Safe travels everyone and thanks for stopping by.
