We drove out to the tip of the harbour, now a park formerly part of Canada Steamship Lines huge construction plant for the "lakers" - those enormously long boats that can span two of the huge waves that occur on the Great Lakes. The grain terminal is behind us. Across the harbour and the inlet you can see the ski hills of Blue Mountains, Craigleith and Alpine ski clubs - very little snow along the edge of the inlet, or anywhere else - only on the ski hills.
And the day after the rains? We had a flash freeze and the temperatures dropped well below freezing. Winter again. But that's normal. Hope you get to enjoy the winter outdoors or the summer if you're in a southern hemisphere country - and aren't plagued by strange weather patterns, horrendous fires or tornadoes, deluges and other things I've learned that Mother Nature is throwing our way. This planet can be SO beautiful!
