Snow storm overnight

Quite a bit of snow and wind over night, this morning lots of snow and large drifts.  Moved about 25cm off the driveway and larger drifts around the house.  Getting colder thru the rest of the week too.  Couple of pics after snow-blowing.

Finally a break in the weather

Good to get out without being hampered by a ton of clothes.  Here is one of Miller Ck. that runs along the Everette Lake Rd.

Edith Lake

Following up the last post I hiked up to the landing at Edith Lake, quite a bit of open water there too.  After last night's cold and this mornings -30°C much of that will be frozen over.  Tonight is going to be even colder.

North end of Burke Lake again

After the thaw and now another cold snap with some snow thrown in I went back to the rapids at the north end of Burke Lake and found some Pancake Ice at the bottom of the rapids. Who's got some syrup?

More rapids pics

North end of Burk Lake this time for a few pics from the west side of the river.  Lots of open water on Burke almost three quarters of the east side open water.  Managed to get out to some rocks in the middle of the flow.  Great spot for some pics.

A look north of open water on Burke Lake.

Miller Creek

Miller Creek runs beside the road that goes  to the old mine sites,  eventually it empty's into Everette Lake which finally ends up in Obushkong Lake and the Montreal River system.  This is a pic taken along the road this afternoon.

More snowblowing today

The snow just keeps on giving, yesterday taking the pics along the river I was well above my boots, last night another few centimeters that had to be moved with the snowblower.  Here are pics from this AM after cleaning up.

Back again

Well a Happy New Year to all, I have been away for quite some time taking it easy and visiting family.  The camera was hardly out of the bag except for a couple of times.  Got out today finally and took a few pics, as I heard someone say "when are you going to get rid of that *** wreath and get some new pics on the blog".  These are taken between the dam and the road.  The sun was just right and the fog from the cold stood out above the rapids.
