Here is what it looked like yesterday & the same look is out there today.
Very enchanted, very beautiful. That is the upside, downside is hazardous & no power! Yin-Yang!!
|Spring will show just what damage has happened to the landscape.|
|The blue of the sky & the sun shining, makes your heart sing!|
|The sound of the ice moving off those roof lines is loud & scary!|
|My potting shed, sits & waits for spring activities. lol|
|North Hardwicke Road.|
|My first New Brunswick winter has not been a dull one!|
|Corner of the north Hardwicke Road & 117 Highway.|
|The birches have bowed so low, they look like bushes!|
|The trees usually tower over the sign!|
|Shaggy bowing birches.|
|Very hardy evergreens!|
The propane generator is going to hopefully run till the power in this area is restored. I hope the weather stays warm & a cold front does not move in. Those hydro workers & tree cutters have been working non stop on those icy lines & trees, for nearly a week now.
From the photos that Bill & I have taken you can see just what they're up against, literately leaning into & handling, for days on end now. You could call them our Hydro Heroes at this point!
Thank you NB Power!!
Coming from southwestern Ontario, this is an annual weather pattern & I've seen it my whole life.
The northern part of New Brunswick has not. It is hazardous to happen but oh so beautiful, Mother Nature has so many palettes of colour & texture to exhibit.
I'm now longingly looking at 'spring magazines' & sighing with delight, with the wonderful spring colour palette , in a few long months, to come.
For now I have a diamond view my every window & when the sunlight hits those sparkling trees, you really have to love the view!
I hope you enjoyed your visit to this winter wonderland, that I'm living at this moment!
Stay safe & warm, wherever you are!
PS And in two weeks ... The puppies are coming home!! And I could not type that without smiling!
