Canada 150 – #16 – Old Fashioned Nor’easters

Canada 150 - #16 - Old Fashioned Nor'easters.

Since everyone seems to be conforming to “the obvious” today for a post, I too shall stick to Canadian winters for my Canada 150 theme for the day. Atlantic Canadians are very familiar with the “Nor’easter” – always a storm situation to be respected. Today’s is one of the worst we have had in recent years – a good old fashioned blizzard.

There’s not much I can say about Atlantic Canadian winters except that winter definitely happens here, and we Canucks are pretty good at dealing with it.  Without winter we would not have the same appreciation for the other seasons, would we?

This photo – Sometimes we Canadians build carports, so that we don’t have to clean off the car and so that we don’t have to shovel off the woodpile. That worked like a charm, didn’t it?

And a few more shots from this afternoon, when I ventured out briefly to shovel my doors clear…
