There have been a number of blog posts lately lamenting unusual weather patterns. A blogger in the UK posted a spectacular field of snow drops, but voiced concern that, though stunning, they are blooming too early because of very warm spring weather they are experiencing in February. A blogger in the mountains of Virginia is frustrated that the weather there goes from warm to cold to warm and wet, making decisions about spring plantings difficult. And on it goes.
I thought maybe those of you who do not live in the land of long and serious winters might enjoy a taste of a fairly typical winter in northeastern North America. This tour has the advantage that you don’t need to put on layers upon layers of warm clothing in order to enjoy what real winter has to offer! We have our own kind of snow drops, called LOTS OF SNOW. Friends in the UK, in case you’re wondering why you have so little cold weather this winter, it’s because it all decided to stay over here this year. This morning it was a balmy -31C with wind chill – and there was lots of wind. Cold, yes, but beautiful too, right?!
I hope you enjoy this virtual tour of my beautiful town of Fredericton, NB. I got some very frosty fingers snapping these pics just for you!

Life is an adventure this time of the year, a beautiful, invigorating adventure, and I love it!
