Backyard snow (an event)
Barbara Muir © 2023

From time to time I'm going to post photos here. Right now,
Toronto is enjoying the look of winter – and because of climate
change that look has been rare so far. Toronto just prepared one
of its ski hills to open for citizens for the first time this winter.
That is not normal.

So despite the cold, and the inconvenience of winter, Torontonians
are celebrating it because they have no idea when it will disappear.
Isn’t that one of the rules of advertising? Aren’t things more valuable
when they are rare? Even though I haven't dug my car out yet, that's
how we feel.

Snow of any significance only twice in January -- is definitely not normal.
Here’s a look at the backyard in this beautiful snow.

Have a loving your life day.

Snow is beautiful and we had some as well. Thankfully at this time of year it doesn't last long here. Love your posts!

Thank you so much Evelyn,

We're apparently headed for a deep cold dive, so I think the snow
will last until that is over. And it is beautiful.
