The month of January has brought us everything from blizzard conditions with high winds and blowing snow, to frigid temperatures dipping down to - 47 with the windchill, to balmy spring time weather, bright blue skies, and then rain and fog. Only in Manitoba, eh?
Early in January we had high winds and blowing snow.
Fortunately, we were on the edge of the storm,
and didn't get the snow others did.
The winds left beautiful, sparkling snowbanks that resembled sand dunes.
The dogs loved playing on the snowbanks
that allowed them to see over the fence.
Mid-January, Brian took a drive south of Shilo,
then headed west, collecting photos along the way.
The things he does for his wife!
How's that for barren plains?
He came across these deer near Wawanesa.
The warm weather continued into the third week.
These photos were taken January 21st.
You can see how deep the snow is around our garden arbour.
I think the dogs were worried when I started to sink!
The neighbour kids have made a snow fort under their trampoline.
Raven, Danica's Cavadoodle loves the snow!
This is Jet, one of our Cavaliers.
Our neighbour's horse enjoying the day.
Who needs to go for a drive to find deer, when they come right into the yard?
Everyone is enjoying this nice reprieve from winter, but real winter weather will be back soon, I'm sure...In the meantime, it's been wonderful!
