Day 108 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Snow Removal in Trenton

In Trenton the snow just kept on falling. Overnight, all day, and into the next evening. In a little over a day around 25 centimeters of snow had drifted down and blanketed everything around. The temperature warmed from in the minus 25 range to minus 5, and the snowflakes broaded and stretched in the wind as it grew milder. Snow removal of all sorts was the order of the day. Some were out with shovels, others with snowblowers, and the snowplows worked all day and all night. On this snowy day, the magic of winter overtook us, and Trenton became a winter wonderland.

Their mom was out shoveling too, but she didn’t want her picture taken. To clear a driveway this big, the whole family gets involved!

    Wow! Will you two ever outrun the snow. It seems like it has been following you for weeks. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

    I’m very glad we don’t have that much snow here in Alberta. Warm and sunny is the forecast for this week. Love the pictures and stories! Keep it up and be safe.

    Hey, that’s me!

    Glad to see those people in the van taking pictures weren’t just undercover FBI operatives or something!
