This mornings pics

A couple of pics of town on my way back from walking this AM.  One of the lake covered in snow and ice and the other looking down past the store as George is coming up the road to start plowing.  Gowganda will have a white Christmas where many in Southern Ontario will be looking at grass.

Damp and misty

Mostly damp, misty and grey skies while going out for a couple of pics near Leroy Lake.  They loggers have fixed up the road going into Leroy lake so they could get at timber on the north side of the lake.  A small bridge was put in over the creek where it flows towards Lost Lake.  These are pics from the bridge looking east.

Gowganda design

Something a little different on this damp afternoon.  Maybe a new Gowganda logo or something.

Crazy weather

We have had many ups and downs with the weather this month, just about everything under the sun, today it is around 2C and misting, snow is disappearing again.  Not your typical December at all.  Haven't been out taking  many pics but played with the old truck in the Miller Lake cut with the snow.  Kind of a dark picture with the truck highlighted.

The ice returns

After a wet warm weekend most of the ice broke up and  melted.  Early this morning under clear cold skies the lake froze again.  Tonight is going to be another cold one.  The frost build up around the edge of the clear ice looked as though there were feathers on it.

With the cool temps last night it made a very thin ice sheet, with some open water steaming in the sunlight..

Off to town today

On the way back a couple of fall pictures, crop land has all been plowed for the fall and cattle are roaming fields before the snow and cold.  In the summer the crops go on for kilometers on which was once an ancient seabed. Click on the top picture for a panorama.
