Nice pics Catherine! I'd love to see some of your pics of winter scenes from Central Park whenever you have them!! Very Happy

Hello Teri!!! Yes we probably did get hit by some of the same weather fronts that hit your area. Most of the big ones we've had so far originated from the States rather than the Canadian west coast. When storms come from the south we seem to get more snow. I've lost track as to how many times I've had to shovel in the past few weeks....Cabin fever hasn't set in yet because I love snowshoeing so winter doesn't seem as long.

That orange snow fence looks rather interesting..... Wink
We also have a fence separating our property from our neighbour's who have a huge lovely Maple tree on their front lawn. I used to get upset that a lot of the leaves ended up on our property and my flower garden. But now, when we mow our lawn, we just mulch everything. It's significantly cut down on our watering and our lawn and my flower garden have never looked better. Very Happy

Hey Rollande! Smile Do you snowshoe?? Mike used to do that back in the day, when we went to school up in Eau Claire. I bet that's fantastic exercise. Very Happy I use Mike's snowshoes for decorative ornamentation in the family room now. Laughing

Yeah, snow fences actually do make better leaf fences, and they should label them as such, so people like my neighbor Don there don't go wasting their hard-earned money on them. Wink

Good to see you! XO

I use my snowshoes whenever I can....however, this past week, we had a lot of rain and freezing rain. The trails have definitely deteriorated. Sad

Eau claire?? Gee... There's a place called Eau Claire not too far from here.

The one here is in the Northwestern part of WI. Smile Wisconsin was quite inundated with French Canadian fur traders back in the day, so we have many French place names here, too. Also Fond du Lac, La Crosse, Prairie du Chien, etc.-- off the top of my head.
(Your upper-midwest geography lesson for the day. Very Happy )
