Check this out

Here's a bit of a change.  They are called word clouds.  This is from a website called Wordle where you put a number of words in the box and it spits them out over and over in different configurations. After you find one you like you can print it out or screen capture it.  You may find a use for it.

Snow on the ground and cold

Yesterday we had about 10+cm of snow and a couple of -20C nites.  The ice should be firming up.  Before the snow I was at the Notch Dam where Duncan Lake flows out to the Montreal River at Wapus Creek. 

The water was calm and low on the river side and the rock walls were covered in ice.  The picture taken of the river looks as though I was in the water but I was dangling out over the rocks on the side to take the shot.

This AM it was 9C right now at 10PM -3C

Big weather changes overnight and today, most of the snow is gone in town but still a bit in the bush.  The ice has stayed on the lake even with the winds today. This is a pic I took this afternoon just off the highway at Single Lake. Click for bigger pic.
