Monday Moanings - December 16, 2013

Sounds of the Season

The cold squeak of snow protesting against car tire and every foot step.

The gritty scrape of shovels across walkways and stairs.

The throbbing chatter of a 4-stroke Briggs & Stratton snow blower engine.

The unmistakable rolling thunder and shudder of a snowplow as it heaves up great billows of white, which then deposit themselves back down at the end of a just cleared out driveway...

Yup, it's winter all right.

It's a nostril sticking -22C (-8F) this morning but it's a dry cold (lol) and the sun is shining, struggling to rise above the trees.

It's a beautiful winter's day in the neighbourhood.
