I’m waiting for the polar bears….

our little nook of the world looks like the arctic today….I wouldn’t be surprised if a polar bear would reveal itself on the ice along our shore !

The ice age is here

A snow storm hit us hard Tuesday and it hasn’t let go of us yet. Hard winds and more snow has made our roads dangerous to drive on. Buses and trains don’t run. Schools are open for those who can walk there. I’m “trapped” out here in the countryside so what to do? Of course I just had to get some picture of all this. It was a little difficult since it was snowing so hard. The lens got snowy as soon as I took out my camera.

First time I’ve seen the water frozen in the harbor. Can’t be good for the boats that are still in the “ice”.

A snow dune that looked like a sand dune that had been built up along the fishing huts.

On the other side the fishing huts where all winter dressed.

The water closest to the shore looked like a slushy drink.

The ice is building up and I couldn’t help but think of the ice age. Is it coming back?

Winter dressed trees and bushes are so beautiful though.

On the day three years ago I sat out here and had my coffee in the sun. (Facebook reminded me today)I washed the windows and did some gardening. Today we didn’t have coffee out here. It was hot coco with rum weather, inside by the fire place. Oops forgot the whipped cream on top.
