High winds and blowing snow

 The last few days have been windy with whiteouts. You can hear the wind coming and the house shutters with it's force.  It's going to get colder again for a few days too.
   Good thing I have been working inside on the kitchen, dining room for a while.  All the tiles are done except for the grout, the drywall almost finished and most of the drywall is primed. It's finally all coming together.  Here is a recent pic of the river looking north from the bridge.

Snowshoeing along the river

The weather finally is mellowing around -7°C today sunny and no wind.  Finally got out on the snowshoes and walked in from the road, south along the east side of the river. A good meter of snow in the bush sinking down about 30cm under the tree cover but in the open there was a soft crust that made it a bit better.  Here is a pic of river with pillows of snow on the rocks.
