Happy New Year… Anyway.

Needed Winter

There is something really irritating this year here in the lowlands.  We went out last night by the place we use to go for sliding down the slope. This is usually a place with a 8 foot height snowbank (minimum) and yesterday, we could see the grass… I mean we could have settled up a picnic. Ski centers are going bankrupt and snow removal companies are getting rich. Our habits are in turmoil.

I couldn’t even use my snowshoes yet… Couldn’t get any picture of this strong and respected winter. I should have go in New York to meet my WP friends…

At least, Canada has defeated USA in this mythic New Year’s Eve hockey night (I know, I know… third goal wasn’t good…)

Still, the thermometer was showing a cool and atmospheric -20°C (-4°F) by the St-Lawrence river and the Moon was preparing her next intervention. We spent the evening outside at the kids winter park but we went back home with a gap in our needs.

Happy new year… anyway

Now I understand people under the 45th parallel that doesn’t like winter. No outside ice rink… No snow…

I wish to everybody in 2015, a 8 foot snowbank with a crazy carpet. If you never tried this, you will reborn for sure. Try it with kids and you will reborn to a higher level.

I wish to all of you a happy year…

  1. Je te souhaite une très belle année mon cher Meho, et oui les hivers sans neige c’est vraiment nul !!!! on a froid mais pas le plaisir de cette belle couche blanche. En france c’est pas mieux les Alpes manquent cruellement de cet or blanc.
    Grosses bises et rappel toi que le printemps dernier vous disiez que la neige ne partait pas assez vite, je te souhaite qu’elle arrive cette année.

  2. Ce matin je regardais dehors et je ne sais même pas quand je pourrai utiliser mes raquettes, c’est presque triste de voir autant d’asphalte et de ciment à ce temps de l’année

  3. Bonne année à toi également Mého. Mine de rien, les hivers s’adoucissent. Depuis le début de la semaine, il a enfin revêtu ces vrais habits ici dans le Jura français. Mais au pied des montagnes, cela faisait logntemps que le thermomètre n’était pas descendu sous zero.

    1. Je te comprend, je n’ose même pas faire de voyage sous le 40è paralèle… 😉 Trop chaud! L’été mon environnement préféré se situe entre 15°C et 25°C maximum, sans humidité et avec un bon vent de la mer… Bonne année à toi!

  5. Started out with about half a foot of snow towards the end of November and then it all melted away to be traded for warmer weather and rain for Christmas. Not used to a green Christmas in Wisconsin but I’ve seen crazier things. I’m hoping the snow will pick up soon or I won’t get to enjoy some snow shoeing this year. Happy new year Meho. Look forward to more great shots from you!
