With one prescription to drop off and two to pick up at the Walmart Pharmacy, Pheebs and I slip-slided our way to Goderich and back on this cold snowy late February morning.
| A SNOWY COLD AND WINDY MORNING AT GODERICH'S ROTARY COVE|
| SNOW COVERED ROADS|
| I DON'T THINK THE SAP WILL BE RUNNING TODAY|
Area roads were snow-covered with a westerly wind blowing the snow around. Despite the inclement weather it still wasn't bad enough to leave ourselves at home.

| THE ONLY SHIP I SAW IN GODERICH'S PORT THIS MORNING WAS THE ALGOMA CONVEYOR|
| THE JAGGED CHUNKS OF HARBOR ICE HAVE MELTED|
| LAKE HURON HAD A COLD STORMY LOOK ABOUT HER|
| A LONE PADDLER HEADS NORTH THROUGH THE ICE FLOES|
| IT WILL BE A FEW MONTHS BEFORE THIS BEACH BENCH HAS ANY WARM TOASTY BUNS SITTING ON IT|
With our usual Goderich routine wrapped up, we rolled out of the Walmart parking lot and headed home on snowy roads dodging through multitudes of snowflakes all the way.
| I NOTICED A FEW INUKSHUKS ALONG THE SHORELINE|
| NO, THAT IS NOT A DOWNHILL SKI RUN...IT IS THE ROAD HOME ON PORTER'S HILL LINE|
And so went another Winter's day..............

| OUR SNOWY FRONT PORCH, DECK, AND FRONT YARD|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( When Grandpa and Billy entered their vacation cabin, they kept the lights off until they were inside to keep from attracting insects. Still, a few fireflies followed them in. Noticing them before Grandpa did, Billy whispered, ‘It’s no use, Grandpa. The mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights.’

OMG.! That Porter's Hill Line road is so scary - can't believe you drove it to get home. Yikes.!ReplyDelete
brrr. glad you got out and BACK HOME with no problem.=But it is all beautiful. I'm sure you're tired of it. Soon. Soon. (Now I know another word for cairn. Inukshuk. People just like to stack rocks I guess. The do it all over the world. I found a little one when I lived out in the countryside on a good sized acreage. I suspect the teenager who lived on the next property did it in a fit of boredom, but then....I don't know.)ReplyDelete
Well the snow fairy has brought us 23 inches of the white "stuff" since Wednesday and another 20 inches is expected by Sunday morning. Then Sunday will be a day of rest for the snow fairy and it will all start again on Monday. Where is Spring???
