After shovelling for what seemed like an eternity, I sat down to rest my soggy feet. The drifts are huge. This is one night....... Nothing yesterday.

I remember scenes like that when I was posted to northen New Brunswick in the 1970s - when we had real winters, ha!

Green & dreary but warm out on the west coast today. Lots of spring flowers are blooming already. Our local ski resort - Mt Washington, BC is without snow again - I don't know how long they can survive as this is the third time in about 5 years like this.

After almost a month without central heat, our heat pump is going in today. With they relatively warm temps over the past weeks, our space heaters, gas fireplace & occasional sunny days have warmed the house quite nicely...

It was a balmy -36 for a few days but has warmed right up to -26 today. Not much snow, I feel bad for those east coasters and all the snow they are dealing with.

We had that last week.
Warmed up this week but up and down with the temps the whole winter.
Not much snow compared to last year.
Possibly an El Nino year.

Oh joy...

I do not miss the rain or the depression that came with it. I doubt I will ever move back to BC.

I love how the baseboard heaters extend in front of the glass. That is fantastic.

Oh yeah! All kinds of quirks in this place. Its fun.

All through the house we have these. They are pretty old and were installed without expansion joints anywhere. Sometimes in pretty long sections of 15' or so. When the water pumps through after being off for a while the whole place sounds like a submarine dive testing.

Ticks and clangs everywhere. Red October!
