Nova Scotia, like the east coast of the US, was hammered by a true nor’east snowstorm yesterday and through the night. As temperatures moderate this morning, I thought I’d snap a few photos from the front deck before all the snow melts. The snow was so heavy and wet that some of the pine boughs actually touched both the building and the ground. This bough caught drips from the roof which froze into shimmering icicles as they hit. Pinecicles, perhaps?
Driving was treacherous last evening, but things seem to be clearing up nicely today. It’s that time of year when we, by the sea, can expect most anything in the weather forecast and, as much as I may grumble as it’s falling, it does make for a magical landscape.
