That was one heck of an early snowstorm for me. I am used to Manitou where the snowstorms did not come until mid December. My little island home got slammed by a storm that started on Monday and continued until Tuesday night. The weatherman said that our region received about thirty centimetres of snow in under twelve hours.
My dog 'Bear' stayed with me sheltered in our small home the entire time only going outside to do his business and then right back in again. I took a few photos out the windows during the storm. The photo out the front door is one of the times I let Bear out. It was so white out that I could not even see the chairs and fire pit in front of my house. I did not dare go outside except to fetch wood from the pile for fear I might get lost and fall into the frigid waters around the island.
It stopped Tuesday night and I managed to dig out the front walk. It appears that the snow fell and then piled up leaving bare spots almost down to the grass in places. The wind was very strong and my house vibrated a couple times from the gusts. The power was out for a couple hours on Tuesday morning but not long enough to do any damage to the food in my freezer. I am curious how my neighbour faired through the storm, I think she is here because I saw a light on over that way before the heaviest snow started to fall.
Ahh life on the island!
