Another Snow Video? Of Course It’s Another Snow Video

But, just in case you’re getting tired of them, this will, (probably … most likely … unless something else very interesting happens) be the last one, because even I, who’s the greatest snow-junkie you’ll ever meet, am beginning to sigh rather heavily whenever I contemplate going out and shovelling it. (playing in it is a horse of an entirely different kettle of kittens, of course)

In this one we’re digging around the trailer prior to scraping the buildup of snow off its roof.

I wax lyrical about other things as well, as you’ll soon see …

One of the, many, reasons I’m currently making a lot of video’s about snow is that it’s everywhere. And not just the flurries and very occasional heavy falls we had back on the Lower Mainland, no, this stuff falls in tens of centimeters at a time, several times a week at the very least, and like yesterday, several times a day.

It fascinates me. It reminds me of all the magic that still resides in the Earth. It brings me Home like no other natural phenomenon can, except for mountains, of course. Give me snow and mountains and I’m a happy little vegemite. (if you don’t know what that last expression means, ask an Aussie)

There was a casualty though. All that shovelling wore a hole in one of my mittens, but with a bit of a darn and a crocheted patch we were soon back to it …

Not perfect by any means, but then again, perfection is highly overrated

Good to go

Good to go


I can’t help myself … the last one, I promise? …

Late last night I glanced out my study window and saw snowflakes swirling in the wind, dancing across the snow drifts as though they were on a stage lit from above … all surrounded by the absolute silence that can only exist when snow falls.

I call it Snow-Dancing Underneath A streetlight …

I wanted to find a song about slow ‘snow’ dancing but I came across this compilation and it fitted the late-night mood perfectly …

  1. What a job! I enjoyed the sound of your voice and the cracking of the ice.

  2. “…avoid getting snow down the back of your neck.” Exactly – that clump might have landed there.

    Keep these to watch next summer.

    They do say that each and every snowflake is unique, but I don’t believe that the government has tested them all. No-one has ever checked me to see if I am unique.

    Have to love the way that it’s falling ever so gently and yet building up those railings so that soon you won’t be able to see past except on tip-toe. Mind you, we must all be grateful that snow falls in flakes, and not in one solid layer… wheeeeeeee thump.

      I do doubt whether Mother Nature, or as you like to call her, Father Nature 🙂 could be arsed to check each and every one. She leaves that to those silly humans who feel that everything ought to be measures to within an inch of its life, just to prove to all and sundry that, a – they’re justifying their existence, and generous salaries, and b – they’re IN CONTROL of the whole situation and there’s no need to panic.
      Yeah, the whole weeee-thump would be a bit annoying. 😀


  4. I am so envious of all that lovely snow. We have had to be content with frost. But I do wonder if you have been able to get to the shops or have enough supplies!

    That is an impressive amount of snow that you have and that you moved! Those are the winters I grew up experiencing when we were in Winnipeg, Manitoba and in Kirkland Lake Northern Ontario. Fortunately I now live in an area that rarely gets anything on there scale. I like it. But I love to see lots of snow. Thank you for sharing.

    Oh I can so relate! Not to the snow, but to the never ending maintenance it requires! Except for me it’s grass, not snow. Commiserations my friend. 🙂

  8. I like it when it’s snowing too. It’s magical. I think the weather will always fascinate us as it’s one thing we can’t control. 😀

    These are very beautiful gloves. I love handmade things. I am only capable of sewing with a needle and thread. 🪡🧵
