Family and friends in southern Ontario report patches of green grass or no snow at all.

We have banks of snow over 6 feet in height.

Much of our road is now just a single lane. It has become difficult for the plow to make it much wider.

Time for Owen to bring his toboggan north. He would love playing in this stuff.

As you can see Mary is feeling better and strong enough to get a short walk in most days.  Not 100% yet but better than a month ago.

Thanks for stopping by and keeping an eye on us.


  1. It's so good to see Mary out and about now. Yes you do have a lot of snow. We have a fair bit too but with the warmer weather we are contending with ice. Ice is my number one enemy after a broken leg and wrist so I have to be careful.

  2. Hi Ruth;
    We wear our "clickers" whenever it is icy. Like you we don't need a fall. The clickers really give us a solid firm grip on the icy.
